How do you feel when you hear that your favourite actor has joined your new favourite show? Well, we scream our lungs out and get crazy about watching them do their thing. We are guessing that’s what you do, too.
Fans of Bongile Mantsai can’t keep calm following the news that the talented actor has joined Mzansi’s first isiXhosa telenovela, “Gqeberha: The Empire.” We hear he will be playing Luzuko’s brother, Hlumelo. The announcement was made by the Eastern Cape show on social media, and everyone was left anticipating.
Fans and viewers of the show are already predicting what his role would entail. Some say he will be Thulani (Tembinkosi Ngcukana) and Nabomi’s biological father. This is because his brother Luzuko is infertile. Some are also hoping that he replaced Luzuko (played by Mbulelo Grootboom) because they don’t find his character interesting enough.
The show also shared a teaser of an episode where Hlumelo requests that his brother Luzuko pull another heist. Everyone was left wondering if the two would make it out alive. Fans have also praised the decision to cast Mantsai in the role because of his acclaimed talent.
