This September, South African television will turn tables as viewers are in for more drama, which comes with a stern warning that it’s not for the faint-hearted. Two industry icons Mduduzi Mabaso and Tony Kgoroge are set to grace our screens on e.tv’s drama IMBEWU.
A force to be reckoned with, Tony Kgoroge will be taking up the role of Zimele “Ngcolosi” Bhengu, husband to MaZulu (Leleti Khumalo). Ngcolosi is one of the three shareholders of Maluju Oil, a company he views as rightfully ‘his’. Tony will tackle the strong-willed, powerful and larger-than-life character, making his debut on Friday, 7 September 2018 on e.tv at 21:30PM.
Bringing the past to the future is the man in a yellow car, MaJozi. Played by Mduduzi Mabaso, MaJozi is a self-made millionaire who went to school with Zimele. Mduduzi Mabaso, one of Mzansi’s leading actors, is well-known for playing the popular role of Suffocate on e.tv’s award-winning soapie Rhythm City. He will be bringing more uncertainty to Ngcolosi as he pays a surprise visit to his wife, MaZulu.
Viewers can expect to see the debut of Majozi on Thursday, 13 September 2018 on e.tv at 9:30PM. The show promises an edgy and intriguing plot that is bound to leave viewers gasping for more.
The world of IMBEWU is a reflection of the unique interaction between rural and urban lifestyles in South Africa. The Bhengu family has been keeping a secret from each other for many years, with treachery and tumult never more than a step away.
Brothers Zimele and Phakade are both honourable men, but one will feel betrayed when he learns of a deep secret that could leave a stain on the legacy he hopes to leave for his four children. The potential fallout is certain to provoke controversial questions about values and legacies, relevant to South African viewers.
