Lunga, best known for playing Andile Dikana on “The River,” has exited the show. He shared a short video with the caption on Instagram, “When one door closes, another opens right? We’re officially done shooting. Thank you to @tshedzapictures for the opportunity. Thank you to @dstvza @1magictv for blessing the people with our great work week and week out. Lastly, thank you to you, The River fans/supporters. Y’all made us want to come to work every day. Until we meet again.”
Speaking to Briefly, he said, “To wrap on The River, mostly to wrap uAndile feels weird in a way. No more 5 am pick-ups from drivers, no more going through scripts, wardrobe changes. It’s something I’m not used to but I’m very positive to experience it all over again with my next production.”
He also spoke about the things he learnt saying “My biggest lesson would be being humble. Nothing builds a great working environment like being humble and knowing ‘umuntu’. Yes, my skills have sharpened,” Read the full interview here.
