Popular SABC1 soapie, Generations: The Legacy is cautioning South Africans against a fake audition call.  

This follows an announcement made that the soapie would have auditions at the Market Theatre Lab on the February 2. Generations: The Legacy publicist, Gaaratwe Mokhethi told Move! that the perpetrators are using the show’s executive producer, Mfundi Vundla’s name to lure unsuspecting victims. “There is no such thing as a ‘Mfundi Vundla Academy’ and there are no auditions held at the Market theatre on February 2. This is a scam,” warned Gaaratwe.

She added that with the rise of human trafficking the production company feared this would be one of the tools used to lure young people. “It so imperative that word gets out. Mfundi does not have anything to do with the advertised audition,” she confirms. 

A number of popular soapies have been plagued by fake auditions in the past including  Muvhango, Uzalo and Isibaya. Muvhango had to part ways with its casting agency because the agency’s name was used falsely in the scam.
