Why Mpumelelo Bhulose keeps getting fired though?
According to the Same, the actor, Mpumelelo Bhulose, who controversially left the SABC1 drama Uzalo last year following reports of a fallout with the show creators, was fired from Imbewu: The Seed for being a pain to work with. According to a source in the show, Bhulose was fired for absenteeism and for late-coming.
The answer is simple, Bhulose has a big ego. He was fired from Uzalo for his ego and not later in 2018 he also got fired from Imbewu. The directors say he is very stubborn and refuses to take orders. According to the Imbewu team, Bhulose would show up late and sometimes would go out of script. All this ego and pride is just too much for colleagues no matter how talented you are. However, he was reinstated in Uzalo only to be axed again. Well, maybe ego isn’t a good thing afterall.
