Charles Maja who plays as Big Boy Mabitsela on Skeem Saam had to be escorted to his car by the police. This comes after people chased him down an corridor at the mall.
Charles told Drum magazine that he was at a shopping centre near his house in Ga-Maja in Polokwane when he was accosted by fans who were upset about how his character treats his son on the show.
“I ran into the store and the shop assistants phoned the police to escort me to my car,” – said.
Maja’s character is an alcoholic on the show and often gets flak for the way he treats his son Leshole Mabitsela, played by Thabo Mkhabela.
Charles’ career in entertainment includes roles he had in Thobela FM’s dramas. He was also part of the ‘kebona boloi’ crew back in 1997 SABC drama which was exposing wrong beliefs within the African communities
