Fans have started questioning the reliability of Menzi Ngubane’s family statement that dismissed that claims that the actor is very ill
Veteran actor Menzi Ngubane, who was set to start filming season 5 of The Queen in July and a movie; Red Cargo with South African and international acts still needs more time to recover.
According to reliable sources, tensions are now soaring behind the scenes of The Queen as the production company needs Menzi’s character pronto. The other new characters; Jessica Nkosi, Ntando Duma, Kenneth Nkosi and Rapaulana Seiphemo are way ahead in their storylines and they have no plausible idea how Menzi will catch up when he recovers.
Menzi is a talented actor who is cherished by a big score of South Africans who have been wishing him well since his health scare.
According to another media outlet: In May, the Ngubane family of the veteran actor criticised “inaccurate and unverified news” that claimed the former “Isibaya” actor is critically ill, leading to widespread panic among fans.
However, fans have rubbished the family’s statement as untrue because of Ngubane’s previous health scares and his unavailability on the set of The Queen.
A fan wrote “If Menzi isn’t as sick as his family suggest, then he wouldn’t still be sick at home, unless he doesn’t want to risk contracting Covid-19 and that’s why he hasn’t started shooting”
Apparently Fergusons Films are focusing on sprucing up their image from now on and do not want to release Menzi from his contract before he has even begun have decided to ‘’support” him.
They stand behind their previous statement “We were very excited when we announced that Menzi will be joining ‘The Queen’ family, as he brings with him a wealth of experience. We will continue keeping them in our prayers and supporting them on this journey, and wish Menzi strength to continue fighting the good fight, and come back stronger than ever,” said The Queen executive producer Connie Ferguson.
