WATCH: Must-See Isono’s Full Cast Revealed
There is just one more sleep until BET Africa‘s highly anticipated first drama series Isono (The Sin) makes it debut. Viewers have been eagerly awaiting the show since it was announced that it would be coming to Mzansi screens. The COVID-19 surge, unfortunately, pushed the show’s premiere date, it was initially scheduled to be premiere on July 27 and was postponed to September 28.
Isono is a global first for BET Africa and is a daily drama format and is set to transform 21:30 viewing in Mzansi. When it comes to content, BET Africa has really pulled out the big gun this year.
The channel first gave Mzansi viewers Black Tax, a locally co-produced comedy series, and a first for the channel. This was followed by BOITY: Own Your Throne, another first celebrity reality show for BET Africa.
Ahead of the show’s debut, ZAlebs managed to get an inside look at what viewers can expect on the show that has a stellar cast, that features Mzansi biggest names.
The daily drama will inspire, vividly entertain, intrigue, and educate audiences with surprising twists and unexpected cliff hangers.
Veteran actress, Nthati Moshesh, who forms part of the main cast alongside Rami Chuene, Bohang Moeko, Senzo Radebe, Didintle Khunou, Tokollo ‘TK’ Sebothoma, and Anga Makubalo, will be joined by legendary Charmaine Mtinta – the naïve Mother Mary loyalist, Mam Lillian, who helps Mary run the day-to-day business of the House of Grace church.
Natasha Thahane plays Millicent, a brazen social climber, and Mam Lillian’s daughter. Fezile Makhanya brings romance into Mary’s story and reminds us just how much an ambitious politician is willing to do on the way to the top. Khulu Skenjana will offer us a view into a different level of the criminal underworld as he plays Gazati, a drug syndicate overlord. Ayanda Nhlapo plays a budding business owner who is loved by many.
The other regular location for ISONO is the church, run by Pastor Duma played by seasoned actor, Bongani Gumede, and SAFTA Award-winning actress Jo-Anne Reyneke who plays the Pastor’s wife.
Also joining the cast is the award-winning film and stage actor Hamilton Dhlamini, young and talented actors Kgosi Mongake, Tshepo Ledwaba, Mpho Sibeko, and Mpule Matlhola, seasoned stage and tv thespian Dumisani Mbebe and TV personality Lalla Hirayama.
