Swazi-born South African actress and television personality Amanda du-Pont has reflected on why she left Real Goboza (RGB).
Amanda du-Pont rose to fame when she juggled many jobs including being a presenter at Real Goboza (RGB). She however had to leave as the job clashed with a lot of relationships she had built.
In an interview on Metro FM, Amanda reflected on what compelled her decision to move on from the celebrity gossip show.
“I enjoyed the platform, but certain parts of the show had to be spicy and saucy to certain people and I no longer had it in me to do it. I know it was for entertainment but at what cost? It’s not ok, imagine I know you and next week I’m like ‘Yhu, Pearl what were you wearing? And I’m like that’s not me and it doesn’t serve me or my purpose so maybe it’s time I should leave.”
Amanda added that just before she left RGB in 2016, the job destroyed her friendship with Khanyi Mbau after she made some spicy comments about her on TV.
Amanda’s even job tarnished her relationship with Khanyi Mbau.
“I remember Khanyi once called me and she was like ‘Friend how can you say that? My mom loves you, why would you say that about me? ‘And I was like friend, they made me and it was at that point where I was just like, I don’t have to do this, so now it’s all about things that are positive.”
She left grateful for the opportunity that the platform gave her, and has no regret about leaving.
