That I have been the one that has been catching the fucking smoke, with these people like ‘she left the job’, It wasn’t me guys, it wasn’t my choice nginitshele, they wrote me off. That’s the truth, that’s the truth. I was actually thinking about it the other day and I was like ‘actually fuck it’ I am so tired of it being me. I am so tired of catching all the smoke. It wasn’t me, it wasn’t my choice” said Nomvelo Makhanya.

Makhanya also reveals that her exit from the Scandal! was all God’s plan because she has been praying for it to come to an end. Even though she also emphasizes that it was never her choice to leave. However, leaving the show was something that she has been praying on for far too long.

It was God’s plan though, Imma tell you that for real, coz I have been praying but it wasn’t my choice. But if you can understand those two things, that choice mekungasiyona eyami but isenzo sankulunkulu, imkhuleko mekweyami. I have been wanting to leave, I have been wanting to leave that place. For me it was something I have been praying about. When it finally happened it really really felt like God was removing me from that toxic, toxic environment” said Nomvelo Makhanya.
