Kayise Ngqula has landed a role on the television series Isono and is the latest addition to the telenovela's cast.
The actress is reportedly going to be playing a character by the name of 'Neliswa' whose storyline will follow her desire to adopt a child.
Kayise posted the announcement to her social media accounts and confirmed that she would be joining the Isono family.
The actress also added a message about gratitude in her caption and expressed how honoured she was to be able to do the work she loves:
"So grateful for the opportunities coming my way... for a girl whose who had to rebuild from scratch, I’d say I’m not doing too badly. God definitely has me at the top of his priority list!!"
The news was also announced by celebrity and entertainment commentator Phil Mphela.
In previous Isono-related news, Briefly.co.za reported on the announcement that the show would not be recasting the role played by the late Lindiwe Ndlovu.
The telenovela has revealed that they will not be recasting the role of the late Lindiwe Ndlovu. Isono airs on the BET channel on DStv. Lindiwe's role on Isono was a cameo, so the telenovela says that they will not be recasting her.
This is according to television commentator and entertainment blogger Phil Mphela.
"The producers of Isono, inform me that Ndlovu’s role was only a cameo and thus will not be recast as she had finished shooting all her scenes," said Mphela.
Tributes have been pouring in from the actress since the news of her passing. Her fellow Lockdown co-star Nomsa Buthelezi became emotional and shared a few painful truths about the industry following her death.
Veteran actor Menzi Ngubane who has played roles on Isibaya and Generations also paid tribute to Lindiwe after the painful news.
Lindiwe was a SAFTA winner and passed away in her home on Monday, 11 January 2021. She played a number of roles on television and was also a stage actress. The official statement announcing her death by her agency did not reveal the cause of her untimely passing.
