#Scandal! – Fans breathe fire over Romeo’s death, call for his return on the show

Fans of Scandal! aren’t happy about the recent death of Romeo Medupe on the e.tv soapie.

The character, played by Hungani Ndlovu, has taken his final bow and has officially left Scandal!

Romeo died on Monday, 7 December. He was killed by a hitman hired by his mother-in-law, Boniswa, played by Lusanda Mbane.

He was thrown off a cliff.

His fans on social media weren’t happy about him leaving and some threatened to boycott the show.

His exit was announced a few months back when media reports claimed that he was fired from the show.

They claimed he and the Scandal! team fought because he was being a diva.

Both e.tv and Scandal! rubbished those claims and said Hungani left of his own will and didn’t fight with anyone.

However, his fans still weren’t prepared for his death, even though it was announced months ago.

Most social media users said Hungani’s character is what made Scandal! and advised that the soapie fix whatever issues they had with him.

“Romeo is Scandal! and Scandal! is Romeo… couldn’t they give him what he wanted whether it’s money or something #etvScandal,” wrote one tweep.

Another one wrote: “There is no #etvscandal without Romeo and Didi. You may as well end the show.”
