Dumi Masilela’s Last Episode On Rhythm City Airs Tonight! Masilela passed away just over two months ago but fans were still able to watch him on Rhythm City until now.
The e.tv 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 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.
There will be a special on-screen memorial service in his honour on October 18. Dumi’s Sabatha Magdeline and brother Thabani will also feature in the episode.
