Another source said that Wiseman is lucky that he was not part of the people whose contracts were no renewed.

“Season 9 starts early next year and after tough contract negotiations, everyone knows who is in and who is out. But it’s still not clear whether Wiseman is shooting for next season or this season. He is a lucky boy who has two jobs at once. It shows that Stained Glass TV loves his talent,” said the source..

The source said that it’s not clear whether he will start appearing on season 9, which starts early next year, or in December.

The star also told City Press that his latest role Mqhele was not too different from his Uzalo character, Sbonelo.   

“When I look at Mqhele and Sbonelo, I see the same person, they are similar – stubborn and violent – so, when I read the script, I could not get my head off Sbonelo. So, I had to differentiate and not take Mqhele to Uzalo and vice versa.”
