Kay makes his Imbewu debut on Wednesday the 16th of February at 9:30PM, alongside an array of other well-known faces. Already a viewer favourite, the character of Nkululeko is currently investigating the murder case regarding his mother’s death, and he is on the brink of finding out the shocking news.
Watched by over 4 million viewers daily, Kay cannot wait to contribute to the proudly South African storyline. Imbewu viewers are loving the narrative and the viewership figures are reflecting the support. Imbewu also celebrated its 1000th episode on 11 February. “This is a proud milestone for the production and we are incredibly pleased with the support of our viewers. We hope to keep our loyal viewers entertained with many more gripping episodes,” says Helga Palmer - eMedia’s Head of Local Programming.
Kay Sibiya was recently on The Wife where he played the character of Sandile. However, his character was killed off in the season finale. Showmax recently confirmed that season two of the smash hit show is coming.
Kay Sibiya replaces Nkanyiso Mchunu, who previously played the role of Nkuleleko on Imbewu. Nkanyiso recently confirmed his exit on his Facebook account. He did not reveal why he left the show but he thanked the production for giving him the opportunity to showcase his acting chops.
"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 has been losing its talent at an accelerating speed recently. It has not even been three months since Phindile Gwala and Buhle Samuels exited the soapie. Apparently new producers of the show were not impressed with Phindile's acting skills and they decided to show her the door. She later came out guns blazing to set the record straight on her exit. She said she was not axed but she decided to call it quits.
