Popular e.tv late night drama, Imbewu, has been renewed for a 5th season and the drama won’t disappoint. The gift & the curse promises a spiritual awakening, and unravelling…
The mighty oil barons of Kwazulu-Natal, the Bhengu family, hangs by a delicate thread. Since the death of the patriarch, Zimele Bhengu, the question of ascendancy has been a sensitive one, and one best left alone. But the discovery of natural gas on family land in Umbumbulu brings this diplomacy to an abrupt end.

Divisions are drawn between Zithulele, and Nkululeko, both legitimate successors in their own right, forcing the Bhengu matriarchs, Mandlovu and Mazulu to choose a side. This life-changing discovery threatens to destroy something the Bhengu family has long sought to protect – its unity. For the first time in its history, the Bhengu family runs the risk of being a family divided.
The intriguing new season brings about exciting changes for the production as well. “Viewers can expect to see change in the visuals from camera and direction, the wardrobe and style of each character has been given a refresh, and we’ve opened up our world by shooting frequently on location, showcasing the beautiful landscape Kwazulu-Natal has to offer” said Khanyi Nxumalo, Series Producer.
Imbewu Season 5 launches in a brand-new timeslot (21:00) from 11 April 2022. The channel recently announced that Kay Sibiya will be joining this season. Kay Sibiya replaces Nkanyiso Mchunu, who previously played the role of Nkuleleko Bhengu. Nkanyiso recently confirmed his departure from the show on his Facebook account. He did not reveal why he left the show but he thanked the production for giving him the opportunity to flex his acting muscles on the show.

"This is me signing out... Myself and Imbewu have decided to end our working relationship. I'd like to thank the production for the opportunity and platform to showcase what I can do.. Ngyabonga kuwo wonke umuntu who supported me throughout this journey,' he wrote.

Imbewu is known for constantly changing characters and viewers were recently noy happy with Kay replacing Nkanyiso. Viewers felt that he was too soft for the role and would not live up to what Nkanyiso was, a villain.
