Another production staffer revealed to a local South African publication that Samuels had crazy demands and a bad attitude and was rude to make up artists and other support staff members.

“She is a great actress, but her behavior is unspeakable. She has a short temper and unpredictable outbursts. She was literally fighting with everyone onset,” said a crew member.

However, other crew members had different views as they said, Samuels was being targeted by crew members who were just jealous of her accomplishments.

The same source said Samuels left Muvhango because she knew she was being targeted and they were plans to get rid of her.

Muvhango’s boss rubbished reports that she was fired, he said Samuels resigned from the drama to join another drama produced by Connie and Shona Ferguson.
