Thursday was the last episode for SABC 3’s ‘Isidingo’. Fans were sad that their favourite soapie would be removed from their screens. The stars of the show also spoke about how they will miss being on the show. Some of them recalled their best days on the show. Darlington Michaels also recalled how he got the part of Georgie Zamdela, also known as Papa G, on Metro FM’s ‘The Morning Flava’.
He stated that he went to audition for the part of Papa G 5 times before he eventually nabbed it. Darlington Michaels says, “When I went for an audition, I went dressed in the swag that Papa G is known for…little did I know I was impressing the producers with my look. It was 50 people who came to audition for the role and it boiled down to seven at the final one. Only to be told I got the role. Georgie Zamdela was just a piece of paper and Darlington was the one who gave him the swag and the lingo.” Black Twitter saw the veteran actor’s swag at the Metro FM interview and commended him for having style.
One tweep says, “When they say drip is forever, this is what they meant…Papa G!” One tweep says, “Does Papa G have insta? If not someone needs to make this happen.” One tweep says, “I’ve loved Papa G since I was a kid. I’m going to dress like him once I can afford [to].” One tweep says, “So being Papa G wasn’t just another character to him, it was a lifestyle.”
