Kabelo Mabalane leaves Boot Camp
Kabelo Mabalane will not be returning to the next season of Kabelo's Boot Camp. The show will return in January 2015 featuring a new celebrity personal trainer.
A source told Sunday World that the musician was replaced because the show was not his from the beginning. The source said, "He was just the host, so now we are going to get a professional trainer and have changed the name to Bootcamp without branding anyone to it,” adding, “the show ended up being a ‘Kabelo’ thing and yet it was not his."
Kabelo's publicist Sheila Afari said, "South African personality Kabelo Mabalane has decided not to continue as the season 3 host of Mzansi Magic’s Kabelo’s Boot Camp."
She continued, "After a very successful two seasons, Kabelo Mabalane has decided to evolve his passion for health and fitness off screen and embark on other projects that will continue to see him working with people in a health and fitness context."
Kabelo said he enjoyed his journey with Mzansi Magic. "I wish them all continued success with season 3. I believe this is a winning concept that can genuinely change people’s lives for the better," he added.
