Season 5 of The Queen kicks off on July 27, every weekday at 9pm on Mzansi Magic, DStv channel 161.
Veteran actor and comedian, Kenneth Nkosi, is set to make a comeback to our screens, as he is expected to join the cast of Mzansi Magic’s The Queen.
Nkosi will be joining the show to play the role of the new cop Jaros.
According to a reliable crew member, Nkosi will play the role of a new cop that replaces actor Mlami Mangcala after he was booted from the show.
“With Jerry’s funeral coming up soon, Nkosi’s character is slowly introduced to the show as the new cop in town replacing Captain Sthembiso Radebe” said the crew member.
Last month, Mangcala, who played the character of Captain Sthembiso Radebe, accused the couple, Connie and Shona Ferguson, of being masters of deception and blasted the producers on social media.
In a series on Instagram posts, made by cast member Sibusiswe Jili, who plays the role of Georgina Zulu, Jili can be seen happily posing alongside Nkosi and fellow cast member Rapulana Seiphemo on set.
The legendary actor Seiphemo joins the local telenovela as Hector Sebata.
“His character is a wolf in sheep’s clothing who enters the world of Tembisa as a high-ranking police colonel with a penchant for the narcotics trade,” said Nomsa Philiso, Director of M-Net Local Entertainment Channels, in a statement.
Mzansi Magic publicist Vuyiswa Dlodlo (CORR) confirmed the introduction Nkosi to the show but was unable to provide further details.
Nkosi was unavailable for comment at the time of publication.
“We are excited that one of the channel’s most loved telenovelas is set to feature South African legends as they showcase their craft and add even greater authenticity and flavour to the story,” said Dlodlo
Last month the popular telenovela saw the return of previously fired actor Sthembiso Khoza who plays the role of Shaka Khoza and the introduction of two new characters Mildred and Warona Sefatsa played by Kuli Roberts and Rosemary Zimu, respectively.
