Isibaya Review : This is Why Fans Are Angry With The Show

Isibaya Review: This Is Why Fans Are Angry With The Show Isibaya has unfortunately changed from being a leading, authentic storytelling Telenovela, to relying on their second-best actor; Melusi Zungu(played by Nkanyiso Mzimela) to run the show. *Insert laughing emoji*. Mzimela released an EP a few weeks ago, so, at this point, I am undecided if he should stick to working towards being a watered-down version of the Toronto rapper Drake or being a mediocre Mpiyake Zungu impersonator. We never took note of how expressionless and dull he was, mainly due to his shortcomings being overshadowed by his talented on-screen father; Mpiyakhe Zungu (played by Siyabonga Thwala) and brother; Jabu Zungu (played by Palance Dladla) stole the show. To make matters worse, they’ve softened Qaphela (played by A...

Uzalo Weekly Review:The Highs And The Lows

Uzalo Weekly Review: The Highs And The Lows We have been anticipating the exit of Uzalo’s popular duo; The Khanyile brothers, Thulane and Godfather played by Thulani Shange and Sizwe Khumbuza for weeks now. We still had hope that the producers of the show may have a change of heart about ending their contracts, due to the fact that they are soapville’s favourite villain duo.  Fans took to social media this week to express their disappointment at the abrupt cut-offs of the duo by Nkunzi. Many remain hopeful that Godfather will return to the show even though he was shot multiple times. Unlike his brother, Godfather did not have a burial and is expected to be the one that would resurface on the show according to several reliable sources.  Nkunzi was accompanied by his wife; MaNgcobo...

What To expect On The Queen This August(Spoilers)

What To expect On The Queen This August As New Cast Members Join It’s no surprise that Seiphemo’s latest character has been compared to his old character, given that there are so many similarities and differences to Hector Sebata and Tau Mogale. Both characters are powerful, successful, manipulative and family-oriented men. Hector is a corrupt Chief of police and Mogale is a suit with a shady past. Hector follows trouble while Mogale is followed by trouble because of his dodgy connections (Jack Mabaso and Kumkani Phakade)  Tau Mogale has been on our screens for almost a decade, it’s hard to picture Rapulana as anyone else and fans still refer to Sebata as Tau Mogale. There’s even a Chicken Licken advert of the iconic character.  The Queen Mzansi Magic What to expect: On The Queen...

Telenovela ‘The Queen’ is Terrible These Days And Here Is Why

The Queen Losing Ratings And Here Is Why The Show Is Awful The Queen is suffering from competence. With the public’s affection for Gomora’s hijacking story-line rising, Uzalo’s infamous polygamous marriage story-line returning, and soapie talents lining up to jump ship, the show has turned out to be a somewhat diversion when Muvhango doesn’t hit the spot. Here are my top three oops-a-daisy moments from the show: Kea’s death scene I will not divulge or dwell into the show’s obsession with violently killing fired actors anymore as it’s been done, but what I will ask, is that they respect us enough, to do it right. They made lots of mistakes with TGom’s shooting and we found it hilarious but now here we are again, with Kea’s death scene. So Kea died from a car bomb, which must have been a nig...
