Johannesburg -  It’s no doubt been one tough year for Melusi Yeni. Since October last year, the former Muvhango star has found himself making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Melusi’s troubles seemed to start when his baby-mama, Palesa Molemela publicly accused him of not honouring maintenance payments. A few weeks after the maintenance scandal emerged, Melusi’s baby mama allegedly turned to the courts in an attempt to get him to make payments.

This allegedly led to Melusi being shown the door from Muvhango. This was followed by swirling reports about Melusi’s deteriorating health. At the time it was believed that Melusi had moved back home to Durban, was in financial trouble and was even bed-ridden at some point.

Melusi has never spoken out about his health issues, but just over a year later, the actor has managed to overcome everything that life has thrown at him.

The actor is also ending off the year on a high note as he’s just joined the cast of Rhythm City. So hopefully 2016 is going to be better for Melusi!
