It was initially reported that he would be leaving the show after choosing Queen Sono over the SABC1 soapie, when Generations bosses served him with an ultimatum.

However, season two of Queen Sono has since been cancelled by Netflix due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the limits it placed on filming. The series relies heavily on international travel to film scenes on location.

It was later reported that he would be joining the cast of Mzansi Magic telenovela, The Queen, and this later changed to Uzalo.

At some point, he was even said to be working with American rapper-turned-TV-producer, 50 Cent. While Dabula denied this in an interview with Drum, he said that was the most fascinating rumour to read.

Another rumour was that he was simply unemployed.
