Actors Who Are Leaving Etv Rhythm City
Rhythm City is a daily ETV soapie. The soapie is basically about the battle with the real power brokers of the music industry. Including the record companies, promoters, producers, DJs and the stars, but also the wannabe stars, the has-beens, families and lovers.
About a month ago, the Mzansi’s most loved award-winning actor Jamie Bartlett, who played Rhythm City’s David Genaro resigned from the e.tv’s soapie.
Bartlett played the character of David Genaro for almost 13 years. Additionally, he won two best actor gongs from the South African Film and Television Awards (Saftas) for his portrayal of the sly businessman. See more below:

“My acting journey has been fruitful and full of possibilities and I have been blessed enough to never be jobless or go hungry. The last seven years I have spent at a home that I found called Rhythm City. Where I found a favourable environment to harness and perfect my craft among thespians who share the same sentiment. I have enjoyed carrying Lerato with me and telling her story.”
Amo Chidi played a character of Reneilwe on Rhythm City. She also confirmed to have left the soapie at the same time as Samkelo. Amo joined Rhythm City in 2012.
The e.tv local productions general manager Ziyanda Mngomezulu confirmed Samkelo and Amo’s departures from the station:
”On behalf of the Rhythm City team, we would like to wish Samkelo and Amo all the best for their future. We will value their personification of the roles they played on the show and thank them for their dedication to entertaining the audiences. Thank you for being a part of the family.”
