Popular TV series Scandal will be welcoming a new character in February. Nambitha Ben-Mazwi joins as the foxy slay queen Shado, and she's reportedly going to be a love interest for hunky Quinton Nyathi.
etv's Scandal has a new cast member, and according to reports, she's going to shake things up a lot.
Nambitha Ben-Mazwi will bring sexy chaos to Scandal, and we're super excited! It's been a while since we've really seen the female do their thing in Scandal.
Xolile has up to now been blinded by love, Yvonne has been quite calm and sedated, and Chichi's return was so brief it's like she was never even there.
SowetanLIVE reports that Nambitha will make her first appearance on 8 February. She's going to be the slay queen Shado who is also the host of a secret gentlemen club.
Briefly.co.za gathered that she will also be the love interest of Quinton Nyathi, and we can't wait to see these two make fireworks on our screens!
About her new role, Nambitha said it's a very new character to portray but it will be exciting for her.
Shado is something else, definitely something I've never played or imagined playing, which makes playing her all the more exciting," Ben-Mazwi explained.
She's aware of her beauty and uses it to manipulate every man she comes across. I'm very interested to see how people will receive the character because it's so different from who I am and what I've done before and what I preach.
This will be Nambitha's first time in a soapie and we're just as excited as she is to see what happens.
She's best known for her role as Unathi Mweli in the Mzansi Magic mystery drama series Doubt.
