Tony Kgoroge who replaced Mpumelelo Bhulose in Imbewu (the seed) for the character of Ngcolosi Bengu has received some mixed reactions by avid viewers of the show.
Although viewers have expressed their complaints Tony has insisted that he will do his own take of the character because he can’t play Ngcolosi the same way Mpumelelo did.
Some of the viewers are still in love with Mpumelelo’s take on the character and would like to see his return to the show while others think Tony is not the right fit.
Actors such as Menzi Ngubane who plays the character of Judas on Isibaya and Vusimuzi Kunene who plays the character of Jack Mabaso on Generations: The Legacy have also received more favor to play the character rather than Kgoroge.

#ImbewuTheSeed Tony Kgoroge doesn't have that thing, Mpumelelo Bhulose should've been replaced by Menzi Ngubane or Vusi Kunene

Other viewers have criticised the quality of acting by some of the show’s cast members as well. Yikes!

However, as we know, numbers don’t lie and regardless of the criticism, Imbewu seems to be doing well for a show that has “bad” actors.
