The winner of the South African SAFTA, none other than Bongile Mantsai, will be joining the family of Scandal! from 11 June 2018.
This 33 year old is best known for his role in the SA film, Inxeba and has appeared in many other productions.
The latest been his role in Nkululeko, playing a role of an infamous gangster, Ta Poncho. The story line was how Ta Poncho was released from prison and began his plot to regain power and status on the streets.
Mantsai will be taking on the role of Mthunzi Mayisa in Scandal!, portraying himself as innocent and pleasant but in actual fact is a villain driven by revenge.
Mthunzi is able to change his personality to suit the company he is keeping. The base of Mantsai’s character is a young boy born out of wedlock to a mother that is shamed by the family and in turn the family rejecting him.
He grew up living with his grandmother and visiting mother’s place of work for only one day, which she is employed as a domestic at the Langa family. His mother is Dambisa Maduna in the show.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Mthunzi felt disrespected and totally unwelcomed by the family. He builds up resentment towards the family and now has a desire for revenge and carry’s it out by infiltrating the Scandal world.
We look forward to seeing the star play out another exciting role.
