Imbewu The Seed’, a new local drama which made its debut on e.tv on Monday night, seems to be a hit with viewers and fans on social media.
The series features some of Mzansi’s brightest stars, including Leleti Khumalo, Thembi Mtshali-Jones, Mpumelelo Bhulose, Rafael Griffiths, Vuyokazi Tshona and Fundiswa Zwane.
Looking at the highlights of the new drama, tweeps could have sworn they saw the American actor in one of the scenes.
Needless to say, we all collectively lost our minds!

As it turns out, it wasn’t the American Morgan Freeman. Instead, it’s a local actor who just happens to really (like really) look like the Bruce Almighty star.
Bab’ Zwane is the name.

Now that we’ve found our very own Morgan, we were like this person is just rethinking every South African role given to Morgan…
