Earlier this week, e.tv confirmed that Sibiya will stop playing Sandile from The woman to play the recast role of Nkululeko Bhengu in the channel’s beloved soap opera, imbewu†
“Sibiya is no stranger to television circles as she has starred in many other local productions. Sibiya will officially join the e.tv family as Nkululeko Bhengu in the channel’s late primetime drama imbewu”, read part of a statement from e.tv.
He will make his debut today, Wednesday, February 16, at 9:30 PM. He will shine alongside a host of other familiar faces.
“Nkululeko’s character, who is already a viewer favorite, is currently investigating the murder case related to his mother’s death, and he is about to hear the shocking news,” e.tv added.
The station added that Sibiya can’t wait to contribute to the proud South African storyline, which is currently watched by more than 4 million viewers daily.
†imbewu viewers love the story and the ratings reflect the support,” said e.tv.
The show also celebrated its 1000th episode on February 11.
“This is a proud milestone for the production and we are thrilled with the support from our viewers. We hope to keep our loyal viewers engaged with many more compelling episodes,” said Helga Palmer, eMedia’s Head of Vanir-exodus Programming.
Sibiya recently ended the role as Sandile from The woman. There he played Hlomu’s first boyfriend and long-time fiancé before Mqhele came on the scene.
Hlomu eventually returns to Sandile when things get too much in her abusive relationship and she cheats on her husband with Sandile. In doing so, she unconsciously signs his death warrant.
