Buhle Maseko, who plays Nimrod Kunutu on Skeem Saam had everyone fooled into thinking he is engaged to his long-time girlfriend Tsholo Lolwayne last week.
Turns out, the whole thing was a publicity stunt.
Buhle posted a series of Instagram posts which he has now deleted, with a ring on his girlfriend’s ring finger, with the caption “congrats future Mrs”.
But, the actor has now revealed to TshisaLive that the whole thing was a publicity stunt and what he was trying to do is announce his new deal with a PR company.
“I am 100 percent not getting married. The only marriage I am entering into is with a new PR company,” he told the publication.
Buhle also shared images of himself in different suits which he might wear on the “big day”.
According to the TshisaLive article, there were a lot of concerned questions from the Skeem Saam cast and crew when Buhle returned to set on Monday, with many asking him why he decided to get married so young.
He apparently told everyone that it was all a joke.
It also appears that Buhle’s friends were in on the stunt as well.
His friends went on social media to congratulate him and tell everybody how “nice” the “engagement” party was. – Daily Sun
