Former The River and SAFTA award-winning actor, Warren Masemola has secured a supporting role on the upcoming show, Isiphindiselo which is produced by ETV.
Zamani Mbatha who currently plays the role of Pule Ndlovu on Rhythm City will also be joining the show as a leading role in the upcoming novella. It is unclear for now when Isiphindiselo will debut on our screens.
Here are some comments from fans of both actors on social media.
“He is a great actor, congrats to him.”
“He’s been gone honeng vele. Congratulations to him.”
“I think this show will be aired on eExtra. Congratulations to him.”
Both Mbatha and Masemola have gone through some hard times in their careers with Mbatha having been involved in two shows that got cancelled within 5 years of his career and Masemola going broke at one point of his career.
Mbatha played his name sake on Isithembiso which like Isibaya was produced by Bomb Productions and got cancelled by Mzansi Magic due to poor ratings. Mbatha expressed his devastation when Rhythm City got cancelled by ETV last year
This has been my most challenging role to date, the realness drew me in. It is the state of the nation at the moment. So much of it is heartbreaking to watch because it is so real. It is the places and the people that the country doesn’t normally see on TV.
I’ve been very broke before. When I finished drama school, starting out as an actor, it was really tough. I shared a two-bedroom cottage with a friend of mine … it was six months of being really bad. We had to do odd jobs and go on to other things.
