With the return of Mzansi’s most-loved telenovelas on screen, Isibaya fans can look forward to riveting storylines and the return of their favourite actors.
As new characters are introduced to Isibaya, we also sadly have to say goodbye to Muzi Mthabela – who has played the character of Duma Ngema- our beloved acting regent who will now be moving to a different project as a lead.
Mthabela has been with Isibaya for seven years. We have seen his character grow from being a hitman for the Ndlovus’s to becoming a powerful man in the valley as the Regent to the Ngubane Chieftaincy. Mthabela’s character has left women weak to their knees and had men admiring his wisdom and strength.
‘’Muzi’s leadership skills, passion and professionalism is impeccable. He is a respectful and loving colleague to everyone that he works with. Our relationship with Muzi doesn’t end now that he is leaving Isibaya, Muzi is and will always be a member of the Bomb production family,’’ says Desiree Markgraaff of Bomb Productions.
‘’Over the years, Isibaya has continued to acquire excellent talent, which portrays their characters very well, just as Muzi Mthabela has done with his character Duma. Mzansi Magic is supportive of the writers and producers of each show to give the best local content that our viewers have come to love.’’ says Nomsa Philiso, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net. “Mzansi Magic is excited for Muzi Mthabela on his new journey as a leading role in another production and wish him all of the best in his new endeavours,” Concludes Philiso.
