Lurayi had started shooting the upcoming storyline in which she played Me’Shell. The character will still appear on screens from September 2.

“We would like to confirm that the late Busi Lurayi had joined Scandal! as the character of Me’Shell who will be coming to our screens from the 2nd of September.
