Masilela’s last scene: Rhythm City to bid farewell tonigh

Almost two months since the tragic death of actor Dumi Masilela‚ the final episode for his onscreen Rhythm City character‚ Sfiso Ngema‚ will air tonight replaying the way he died.

The soapie revealed last month that Sfiso’s exit would re-enact the scenes of Dumi’s murder‚ which happened in August during a botched hijacking.

The producers said a decision was made to replicate Dumi’s death in an attempt to highlight the scourge of violent crimes in South Africa.

“After extensive consultation with the Masilela family‚ the producers of Rhythm City have decided to incorporate Dumi Masilela’s tragic death into the exit storyline of his character‚” read a statement.
