Isipho

On Monday 1 July 2019, e.tv will be introducing a dynamic and intriguing new series called ISIPHO.

Produced by HerbVision Multimedia in association with The Ntintili Factory, Isipho is set in the beautiful landscapes of Muldersdrift, and surrounding areas, Isipho, which means a gift, follows the story of Moses Shezia former academic whose peaceful life takes an unexpected turn when he experiences a telling vision that reveals his daughter’s death.


Desperate to change the course of destiny, he sets out to find the four strangers who appeared in his vision and surrounding his daughter at the time of her death. From his vision, it is clear that these strangers are not in any way ordinary.

They have gifts.

Following his vision, Moses armed with the goal of honing the stranger’s gifts finds himself together with his psychologist wife and a team of teachers in the spiritual arts, opening an academy for the gifted.

The students come with baggage of their own and soon after that, Moses and the teachers discover that they not only have to teach the students to harness and control their gifts, but also guide them to be the best versions of themselves.

Isipho stars a host of exciting new talent, alongside some familiar faces.

Starring Nimrod Nkosi as Moses Shezi, Thobani Nzuza as Lwandle, Saint Seseli as Pastor Rametsi, Sparky Xulu as Mpendulo, Wandi Chamane as Nomzingeli, Karabo Maseko as Neo, and introducing Precious Ngidi as Ntombi Shezi and Mbalenhle Mavimbela as Tandzile. And rounding off the cast playing Gogo Nqobile is the iconic actress Themsie Times.


‘The channel is happy to open up its pool of production companies with Herbvision and the Ntintili Factory producing  their first independent production for the channel. We look forward to welcoming back some familiar faces to our screens and introducing new ones,” says Head of Local content at e.tv, Ziyanda Mngomezulu.

Oros Mampofu

Blessings come in pairs for talented actor Oros Mampofu.

Having recently welcomed a bundle of joy in the form of a bouncy baby girl, Oros now welcomes his second blessing as a new cast member to Rhythm City, the fastest growing soapie in South Africa’s TV land.

RELATED: COULD A SOMIZI AND BONANG REALITY TV BE IN THE WORKS? 

Mampofu will make his Rhythm City screen debut on the 16th of May as the character of young Eastern Cape born Banele, a rural Xhosa man whose family relies on social grants to sustain their daily lives.

Oros Mampofu

Banele is fascinated by history, particularly African literature and it is this passion that sees his story unfolding after he secured a bursary to study at the Johannesburg Metropolitan University.

Banele’s story is that of trials; He is the first person in his family to go to university and that becomes both a great privilege and a massive responsibility as his family heavily relies on him for help.

Being the sole bread winner is no glitz and glam and Banele quickly finds himself working as a recycler in order to send money back home.

Rhythm City Tiisetso Thoka

South African multi-talented actor Tiisetso Thoka is set to join the all-star cast of Rhythm City.

Thoka recently bagged the role of Siya on one of South Africa’s leading soapies. Siya is a metrosexual guy, blessed with good looks and a great sense of style.

Siya comes into our world when Mampho is looking for a housemate for four months while Rene is away, performing in a musical on Broadway. Assuming that he is gay, Mampho chooses Siya from the many candidates. Siya proves to be the best choice Mampho could have, and they immediately get on like a house on fire.

He is so perfect that Mampho sometimes wishes he wasn’t gay. She starts seeing signs that make her doubt her initial assumptions around Siya’s sexuality and she sets out to find out the truth.

Could Siya be Mampho’s long-awaited “happily ever after”?

Catch Tiisetso Thoka from Monday 1 April at 7:00pm on Rhythm City on e.tv (DSTV channel 194 and Openview Channel 104).
