South African actor Sandy Mokwena Dies



South African actor Sandy Mokwena Dies - BellaNaijaSouth Africa has lost another arts giant, as veteran actor Sandy Mokwena, popularly known as Bra Eddie, has died, Times Live reports.

News of his death is coming just 2 days after it was announced that legendary jazz musician Hugh Masekela had passed.

Mokwena, who stars in hit South African series “Scandal!” reportedly died after falling ill.

“The Scandal! production and cast are deeply upset because he has been on the show since episode one, which was 13 years ago. He’s the longest running actor on the show,” the Scandal! team said.

Mokwena’s family are said to be in shock, and are yet to release any other detail.

    Sad much. He was one of the oldest actors on scandal, way back from 2005. I loved watching him. He always found a way to old everyone together despite the drama. How will Maletsatsi cope? #RIP Bra Eddie.
