On Monday 1 July 2019, e.tv will be introducing a dynamic and intriguing new series called ISIPHO. Hot on the heels of the successful late night Zulu drama IMBEWU, the locally produced show will air every Monday to Thursday at 6:30PM.
Produced by HerbVision Multimedia in association with The Ntintili Factory, ISIPHO is set in the beautiful landscapes of Muldersdrift, and surrounding areas, Isipho, which means a gift, follows the story of Moses Shezi, a former academic whose peaceful life takes an unexpected turn when he experiences a telling vision that reveals his daughter’s death.
Desperate to change the course of destiny, he sets out to find the four strangers who appeared in his vision and surrounding his daughter at the time of her death. From his vision, it is clear that these strangers are not in any way ordinary. They have gifts.
Following his vision, Moses armed with the goal of honing the stranger’s gifts finds himself together with his psychologist wife and a team of teachers in the spiritual arts, opening an academy for the gifted.
The students come with baggage of their own and soon after that, Moses and the teachers discover that they not only have to teach the students to harness and control their gifts, but also guide them to be the best versions of themselves.
Isipho stars a host of exciting new talent, alongside some familiar faces.
