Well after almost 10 years playing the role of Shakira on ETV Scandal Matthews left the soapie.

Oh but she didn’t just stop at leaving Scandal. She left South Africa and moved to USA with her husband who is from the USA.

Once we start moving to Mars I am sure that Matthews will be on one of the first spaceship heading to Mars.
