After thirteen-years and 3000 episodes Kagiso takes a break from Scandal.
Kagiso Modupe has decided to part ways with the series to embark on a journey of discovery as a creative.
In a recent post on social media, Kagiso reflected on his time spent on the show, thanking his wife and friends for their support, saying that he has decided to “take a break” and work on exploring more of himself.
His farewell message read:
“From the deepest place in my heart and my soul, I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You. Ke a leboga ETV, Ochre Media, the entire team at Scandal, my family Bakwena ka kakaretso, my wife my rock Liza Modupe @ms_liza_k & children Tshimollo and Motheo.
Thank you for sharing me with the world, and my die-hard followers. After 13yrs and 3000 episodes, It is time to take a break from Scandal and take on a new journey in exploring myself further as a creative. I would like to dedicate my last storyline which kicks in on your screens from next week, to everyone who has followed my career from day one. I hope that you will continue to support me in my new endeavors. I am humbled by the love you always give and know that I love you more. Love Kagiso ya Bakwena Modupe…”
Kagiso went on to add that moving forward was important for him in order to grow out of his comfort zone.
“It’s always easy to say hello…But difficult to say goodbye. Moving forward in life is a necessity in order to experience personal growth and change. As humans, we tend to stay in places that make us feel safe and comfortable however it’s when you move outside of that comfort zone, where all the magic happens.”
