It appears popular actor Senzokhuhle “Senzo” Radebe, who joined Mzansi Magic’s Gomora this week on 23 August as the villainous character Zibuko has replaced late actor Siyabonga “Siya” Zubane, who played Sdumo for two seasons. .
The TVSA Gomora September teasers also reveal the actor Senzo Radebe’s character Zibuko, who seems to have replaced Siyabonga “Siya” Zubane (Sdumo) will fall in love with fan-favourite character Mazet.
Mazet donated blood for her after she realised she’s got two kids who are still dependent on her and might donate her kidney too.
Friday 23 September:
“Mazet and Zibuko fight over Nyalleng’s kidney. “
Tuesday 27 September:
“Zibuko refuses to give in to his feelings for Mazet.”
Zibuko will be the second man Mazet dates in the telenovela after her failed relationship with Ntokozo (Ntobeko Shishi).
A Gomora viewer revealed this week that the popular actor Senzokhuhle “Senzo” Radebe is now part of the main cast.
“So, las this Zibuko character is part of the main cast? What a wow!”
Radebe’s character is particularly close to characters MamSonto, Mazet, and Stompie, who were Sdumo’s ‘friends’ in the telenovela before the actor who played the character passed away in May this year.
Sunday World reported that Siyabonga Zubane took his own life on Saturday (7 May).
A family member tells the publication that the actor’s death is a “great loss”.
“He was nothing close to Sdumo. He was a nice shy guy who loved and respected people,” said a family member to Sunday World.
A source from the industry told the publication that the industry comes with lots of hardships and disappointments.
“Our industry is not as glamorous as people think it is it comes with too many hardships and disappointments that can have a negative effect on any young and upcoming actor,” said the source.
Other actors who joined season three include Fezile Makhanya as Principal Cele, Moshe Ndiki as Mr Faku, etc.
