Thuli Phongolo exits “The Wife”


Thuli Phongolo is reportedly removed from the cast of the Showmax drama, The Wife.

In November, she was excited to be part of the drama, but in a space of two months, she exited the show.

Phil Mphela announced her departure on the show, but there’s yet to be an official explanation for the sudden exit.

Though, Phil said a source revealed that her absence from the set got her role canceled.

“The role of Lerato on #TheWifeShowmax, has unexpectedly been written out of the show Sources claim the decision was made to drop the role due to Phongolo going M.I.A,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, Thuli was booked and busy through the festive period, as she also functions as a DJ.

In November 2021, Thuli said she was happy to be part of the show.

I’m glad you guys have finally met Lerato! What a job she is, oh but I love her! You just never see her coming because she hides her layers well but everything she does, she does with intent… things get quite interesting! Happy to be a part of a phenomenon that’s Hlomu: The Wife, enjoying the cast so much!!! An original, a love story with a twist… thank you for the opportunity,” she said.
