Hlaudi Motsoeneng & 16 Generations actors (Supplied)
Johannesburg - Quick, someone get a sangoma! We think someone may have spilled love muti in the Generations offices.
Pointing out that the actor's anger should be aimed at the production company and not at the SABC, Hlaudi told Sunday World: "We tried our best to intervene in the dispute. That's why we are now extending a call to them to come back."
Given the way the 16 have departed and the fact that many of them have swopped their SABC access cards for red shiny e.tv ones, Hlaudi's pleas will probably fall on deaf ears. But he says the SABC are committed to helping the actors develop their own shows.
"Sophie (Ndaba) and Ngamla (Menzi Ngubane) have been with the SABC for a very long time. SABC will be happy to welcome them on board if they come up with their own production houses," Hlaudi says.
And it seems Sophie has already jumped at the chance, teaming up with bestie Winnie Ntshaba and former Generations head writer Bongi Ndaba to pitch ideas for her own shows on the station.
