ACTOR Hungani Ndlovu is not making a comeback on Scandal!

The popular e.tv drama has poured cold water on the claims that the talented actor is making a comeback on the show after producers agreed to a new salary range.

“Guess who’s returning to Scandal! Sooner than we expected, Scandal! has officially offered Hungani Ndlovu R85 000 to R100 000 to return to the show, making him one of the highest paid actors in SA,” Mzansi Celeb News wrote.

One of the show’s producers Sanele Zulu told Daily Sun the rumours were untrue.

“Any rumours regarding Hungani Ndlovu either resigning or returning to Scandal! due to salary issues are false,” he said.

“Last year, Hungani requested to go on leave for personal reasons which have no bearing on Scandal! whatsoever. Our relationship with Hungani has always been extremely positive and remains so until so to this day.”

This is the second time rumours regarding the actor’s future on the show have surfaced.

In November last year, the show denied claims that he was fired for bad behaviour.

In statement, the producers of the show said: “The channel, together with Orche Media, refute the claims that Hungani was fired for bad behaviour on the show, nor had his character, Romeo, been killed off.

“We have the highest regard of Hungani’s professionalism and humility as an artist. He has always behaved with utmost respect towards his employers and colleagues.”
