Best known for his on-screen character of Gxabashe on Mzansi’s most-watched drama series Uzalo, where is Mpumelelo Bhulose now?

Despite being among the most sought-after stars, Mpumelelo Bhulose disappeared from the small screens leaving many wondering about his whereabouts.

With a career spanning years, the bubbly actor starred in several drama series, but he saw his on-screen characters being written off due to a lack of professionalism.


It’s now years since he has appeared on small screens. According to IOL, the star last hogged headlines when he was axed from Imbewu: The Seed for not showing up on set.

Confirmed reports have it that his exit came barely a few months after being cast. Unconfirmed reports have it that he had a fallout with executive producers of the shows, including Leleti Khumalo.

He also starred in Greed and Desire, but since his dramatic exit from the soapie, he is yet to star in a big-budget drama series.

However, his dramatic exit from Imbewu: The Seed was not the first. In 2016 rumour mill had it that he was fired from Uzalo after allegedly butting heads with co-workers and producers.

However, despite all these allegations, the actor always remained mum, only to throw social media jabs in 2019.

Despite being regarded as one of the most difficult actors to work with, the seasoned actor has managed to cap his dramatic career with accolades.

Apart from accolades, he has managed to star in several big-budget drama series. Against the backdrop of his newfound fame, he made headlines with his on-screen character of Martin on Generations.
