FANS LAMBAST KAY SIBIYA: ‘WE NEED THE BIG EYES’  

Fans of Imbewu: The Seed have taken to social media to lambast the show for replacing Nkanyiso Mchunu with Kay Sibiya for the role of Nkululeko Bhengu.   

Mchunu is the fifth actor to exit the telenovela and the fourth actor to be replaced since the inception of the show.  

Viewers are comparing Sibiya with Mchunu and have stated that he doesn’t fit the role though he’s talented.

He’s appeared in several shows such as The Queen, The Wife, Uzalo, Generations: The Legacy, and more.  

Mchunu wrote on Facebook in late January about his departure from the show:  

“This is me signing out… Myself and Imbewu have decided to end our working relationship.”

“I’d like to thank the production for the opportunity and platform to showcase what I can do.”
