It was a sombre reality for fans of Imbewu: The Seed to grapple with the loss of the actor Tony Kgoroge’s character. His role as Zimele ‘Ngcolosi’ Bhengu was iconic for the show and it is suggested that he’s walking away due to salary disputes.
He joined the e.tv drama back in 2018, and it was revealed a couple of months ago that Muzi Mthabela was going to be his replacement. Muzi left Isibaya for Imbewu after being on the Mzansi Magic soapie for seven years.
The male leads on the e.tv telenovela have always been established actors in the industry. Tony took over the role from Mpumelelo Bhulose, who is an accomplished thespian in his own right.
Kgoroge’s last scene on Monday evening left fans reeling in heartfelt emotions for the actor’s character. Ngcolosi was shot multiple times and died in hospital.
Dude it’s scary to play dead☹️ https://t.co/PUUacKVxgv
