The year 2020 didn’t end well for the veteran actor Dumisani Mbebe who was dismissed from work.
The star was fortunate to be part of the cast that is shooting a new Netflix series which is directed by Akin Omotoso. However, when it was time for the cast to show up for a table read the star didn’t budge.
It was unfortunate that the Nigerian producer had to fire him. But what’s baffling is Mbebe had contracted coronavirus a few days before the table read and is currently self-isolating. The producers and creators of the show could have understood there was no way Dumisani could have risked attending the table read in his condition rather than show him the exit.
