A teenage girl from Eastern Cape, South Africa, allegedly committed suicide last week Friday after she watched her favourite actor die in the season finale of popular SABC drama series, Skeem Saam.
Actor Oros Mampofu, who plays Jama’s character on the soapie posted a notice on his Facebook page saying he wasn’t sure if the report was true or not but he sends his condolences to the family. In his post, he mentions that the girl’s mum found her lying on her bed motionless when she came back from work with a suicide note next to her.
The girl committed suicide because her crush and favourite actor in the series, Jamma, died in the finale episode.
Skeem Saam fans were left shocked by Jamma’s death after the popular character drowned in a pool of his vomit after he drank too much alcohol during his birthday celebrations.
In her suicide letter, the young girl wrote how her life would be incomplete without seeing her favourite actor on TV.
Eastern Cape Police provincial spokesman, Captain Khaya Tonjeni, said that the police could neither confirm or deny the alleged suicide.
After finding out about this tragedy, beloved actor Oros took to social media to send his condolences to the girl’s family.
