Actress Kgomotso Christopher (YV) slams claims that she’s returning to Scandal!
South African star Kgomotso Christopher is the acclaimed two-time SAFTA-award-winning actress who is behind some of the most recent iconic roles on local soapies. However, it can be argued that one of her most memorable roles to date is none other than Scandal’s Yvonne “YV” Langa.
However, in March 2020, Christopher made her temporary exit from the soapie. However, by December 2020, Christopher has officially left the soapie in order to play the lead on M-Net’s first original telenovela Legacy. But with the cancellation of the soapie, it was speculated that Christopher might have been making a comeback to Scandal! As reported:
Taking to Twitter, Kgomotso Christopher welcomed the news that Litlhonolofatso Litlhakanyane was returning to Scandal! As a result of her celebratory post, fans of the SAFTA award-winning actress then posed the question of whether or not she will return with the young actor.
Reason being that ahead of her departure from the soapie to lead the cast of the now cancelled M-Net original telenovela Legacy, Christopher was beloved as Tibi’s mother figure as the scrupulous villain Yvonne “YV” Langa. But Kgomotso first suggested that Tibi did just fine without her after her departure.
But when pressed on whether or not she will be making her return. More so as Legacy has been cancelled and there has not been an announcement suggesting that Kgomotso is working on any new projects since. It seems that there is a great chance that Kgomotso might return to reprise the role which earned her one of her SAFTA awards.
However, at the time, Christopher would not give a direct answer. But as excitement started to take over in the belief that she was returning, Christopher finally shared the truth.
Taking to her Twitter, Kgomotso Chistopher finally shared the truth about her speculated return to Scandal! She confirmed that she was not returning as she tweeted a reply stating:
“Kealeboga ngwana Sesi hore o ba payisitse batho ba Mzansi what what. [Thank you my sister that you have told the country about the possibility of my return].
