Warren Masemola leaves House of Zwide

Written by on 17 May, 2023

The world of television is abuzz with news of a significant departure, as one of South Africa’s most talented actors, Warren Masemola, bids adieu to the popular soap opera “House of Zwide.” Masemola, known for his remarkable performances and versatility, has captivated audiences with his portrayal of the beloved character Alex Khadzi.

As the news of his departure spreads, fans and industry insiders alike are left to reflect on his outstanding contributions to the show and anticipate the exciting path that lies ahead for this extraordinary actor.

Warren Masemola is an acclaimed actor who can boast of having five SAFTA award wins throughout his illustrious career in film, television, and theatre.

This feat by an actor is not usually achieved by an actor that plays a single character for years on end. Instead, it is played by an actor that continually looks toward finding different and dynamic characters.

As such, Masemola did that when he joined the cast of House of Zwide back in September 2022 as the title antagonist of the A-storyline of the soapie. Funani’s worst nightmare is about to enter the House of Zwide walls. The newest addition to the hit eTV drama series is said to be Funani Zwide’s biggest and oldest rival.

“Alex is a high-flier, and his biggest achievements include featuring on the Forbes’ “30 under 30” as well as winning the coveted LVMH Prize for young designers. But don’t let the charm and bright outfits fool you, Alex has a heart of darkness. But first, he wants to bring Funani to his knees…” the statement concludes.

However, it seems that after eight months of playing the character, Masemola is ready to move on to find another character to bring to life. On Monday, 15 May 2023, e.TV released the official statement confirming that the upcoming episode of House of Zwide will mark the exit of the current antagonist Alex Fudzai played by Warren Masemola.

The exit is a segway for the story to change the relationship dynamics between leads Vusi Kunene as Funani Zwide and Winnie Ntshaba as Faith Zwide. This is because Funani has been the “innocent” one between the two who could never conceive why he would ever commit murder.
