Gcina plays Nozi who first enters our world as the sole witness to a hit-and-run involving Zithulele (Raphael Griffiths) and Sibongile which left a young girl dead. Nozi starts to blackmail Zithulele and presses him further for more money until he threatens her with a gun.
While she’s just trying her luck and not hoping for much, she does squeeze R35 000 out of him. And with the evidence she has against Zithulele, it’s an amount he is very happy to hand over. Then later, she fuels Mzwandile’s suspicion that Zithulele may have been involved in his niece, Slindile’s murder.
Whichever way the story goes, things do not look good for Zithulele… Only time will reveal where this twisted road will take us on Imbewu.

Her fans have reacted to the huge announcement.

mballi_m "Wena Wakithi🥹🙌🏾 it’s people like you who inspire upcoming actresses like us to do more. I’ve been waiting for you to come back to our screens. I love this and congratulations."
yiswa_maphanga "I was so happy to see you."

Gcina is the newest addition to the sopaie following the shocking departure of Brenda Mhlongo who played KaMadonsela.

She left the show following reports that she apparently choked a producer on set. According to a report on Sunday World, when asked why she apparently choked the producer, Brenda said "she got caught up in her character and the dlozi took over." The alleged toxic working environment on Imbewu were exposed by a source. Apparently things are bad at the production since a new management took over.

The publication reported that some employees allegedly take antidepressants because they cannot cope with the alleged work environment at the production.

“The new management brought with them very rude and unprofessional crew members who are treating actors and other people like crap.”

“Many people have been on depression pills since the new management took over.”

“The work environment is no longer enjoyable, and people are scared to talk because they do not want to be fired as the new management does not like to be challenged," a source told the publication.

Imbewu recently got renewed for a fifth season. 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.
