Menzi Ngubane’s first day on Ashes to Ashes.

Published: 31 August 2015

Following ten months of sabbatical from the television industry, Menzi Ngubane has finally made a comeback on our small screens as Detective Nkonzo Mazibuko on a flagship telenovela, Ashes to Ashes.

Ngubane made his much awaited debut on Thursday 09 July 2015. He arrived at the Namane run funeral parlour like any other client who could’ve be easily mistaken for seeking funeral services.

Understandably, Damain (Mandla Gaduka) with his comical antics welcomed Nkonzo and asked how he could assist him. But of course Detective Nkonzo was not looking for a funeral planner or any of the services offered at the funeral parlour.

He came to investigate murder (of Godfrey Simelane) and his investigations led him to the Namanes, he revealed to Selo (Patrick Shai) and Tsietsi (Nyaniso Dzedze). A visibly frightened Tsietsi tried to downplay his emotions.

The truth is Godfrey was a nuisance to the Namanes and at one point put the life on Mandlakazi (Nambitha Mpumlwana) under siege. Selo lost control of his household as he was constantly consulting a beer pot for solace. He put his Namane shares up for grabs and like any other concerned heir, Tsietsi wanted to save the day- SO HE KILLED GODFREY (mistakenly perhaps)

At this point we can only arrive at one conclusion; everyone is a suspect at the Namane household. Detective Nkonzo is set to ruffle feathers. Is this the end of Tsietsi? Will Uncle Mickey go down with him? What about Selo? Will the infamous Namane

Menzi Ngubane joins e-tv Ashes to Ashes? And Katlego Danke?

South African seasoned actor, Menzi Ngubane is making a big come back on television if the recent media reports are anything to go by. Ngubane played the role of S’busiso Dlomo on Generations and was part of the 16 actors fired by Mfundi Vundla in August 2014 amid contractual and salary disputes.

Sunday World reports that Ngubane approached e-tv for a job and got a nod. He was expected to form part of the line-up of the new telenovela, Ashes to Ashes but was temporarily excluded from the launch to afford him time to focus on his health after the recent kidney transplant.

“They gave him a few months to get his health back in order and [he] would probably be unveiled as a surprise addition to one of the new dramas [either Ashes to Ashes or Zibonise],” explained a source.

When pressed for comments, the channel was forthcoming with the informing regarding Ngubane possibly joining one of e-tv’s new dramas.

“We constantly need to engage with the very best local talent, and Menzi is one of the greatest local actors and it would be an honour to work with him.

“It is our understanding that he is still recovering and we wish him a speedy recovery,” e-tv spokesperson, Matla-Rapulana Ragoasha told the newspaper.

Ngubane could neither confirm nor deny the allegations. At this stage, he said, his priority is with his health and will discuss work related matters once he’s fully recovered

“I can only talk about work related things after the process. These stories are going to disturb me and that’s not what I want at the moment,” he said.

Katlego Danke

What about Katlego Danke, is she also joining Ashes to Ashes?

Only last week, an online media site, Quench SA alleged that Katlego Danke could also be joining Ashes to Ashes. Danke played the role of Dineo Mashaba on Generations and was fired [alongside 15 other colleagues] from the soapie while on maternity leave.

Danke is currently on maternity leave bonding with her first born. However, she has since hinted out that she will not turn down the offer if approached to join the e-tv family. Or she’s already on the set of Ashe of Ashes. Is she?

What Danke said or done on twitter

  • Nambitha Mpumlwana is on the payroll of Ashes to Ashes. She plays the role on Mandlakazi, the family matriarch.
  • Despite the fact that Danke and Mpumlwana have been colleagues on Generations for years; the two recently followed each other on twitter.
  • They have been retweeting each other’s tweets.
  • When one fan @TshepoKgakane asked “@KatlegoDanke could we see you in e-tv’s new soap #AshestoAshes?
  • Katlego Danke responded “@TshepoKgakane unfortunately not. But please do support my colleagues.”
  • When Nambitha posted on twitter “It’s an extra special Sunday! Watch exclusive first preview of Ashes to Ashes on E-TV at 20:00, the post gained Katlego’s favour and endorsed it with a RETWEET.
  • Another fan tweeted, and Danke retweeted. “Kodwa why isn’t @KatlegoDanke part of the anticipated new show #AshestoAshes. It would’ve been nice, but I hope she joins eventually…
  • …To which Danke replied “@ZandieyM .. eyM nke replied “ope she joins eventually. to AshestoAshes. It would’urn down the offer if appraoched twitteraw thanks for the support and belief in me.”

Tilo ngwana Rashaka Mokgopo

Nominees for the annual Royalty Soapie Awards have been revealed. The event, set to take place on Saturday 28 March 2015 will see some of the South African television heavyweights competing for the Royalty honour.

Kelly Khumalo responds to haters: I’m not cursed!

Kelly Khumalo

Tilo ngwana Rashaka Mokgopo

Apparently bones have been thrown and sangomas spoke- controversial Kelly Khumalo is a cursed woman. To get rid of the bad luck overshadowing her life, she needs to be cleansed. A traditional ritual has to be performed for her, sangomas advised.

But Ms Khumalo who is a stern believer in Jesus Christ rubbished off the suggestions. In an interview with Samantha Cowen of Talk Radio 702, Kelly spoke candidly about her private life, music career, the Yvonne Chaka Chaka saga, scandalous media reports, Senzo and his family, The Juice reported.

Kelly explained that she regards herself as one of the highly favoured people in South Africa.

“I don’t think I’m cursed. I have never felt cursed…I am one of the most blessed people in the country. I used to dream of being a successful musician and now my song is sitting at the top five most played songs in SA,” she said.

But the success of Asine, the very song Kelly brags about, is a source of pain for other people. Yvonne Chaka Chaka is up in arms claiming that Kelly and Chicco are charming the fans the wrong way.

But Kelly remains unfazed. She lambasted Chaka Chaka for opting to go to the media instead of approaching her to resolve the matter in a polite manner. If Chaka Chaka is still contemplating on contacting Kelly about the Asine saga, Kelly is simply not interested anymore.

“I recorded the song (Asine) in April last year and it went on radio in August. I saw media reports that Yvonne said the song was hers, but it’s a totally different song and that song belongs to Chicco Twala. There’s no confusion.

“She should have approached Chicco if she had a problem instead of going to the media. If she had said she wanted a meeting, I would’ve said yes, let’s go and meet with Chicco. I respect her. But I wouldn’t go now. I think it’s gone the wrong route.

Although Kelly has plenty of good things to say about her deceased boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa, however the same cannot be said about his family. Ms Khumalo claims that she has no relationship with the Meyiwa family and wishes not to know them.

“People close to me know how much I loved Senzo and still love him and wouldn’t do anything to harm him in any way.

“I don’t know them (the Meyiwa family). I don’t wish to know them. I have a blessing, Thingo, and it is my responsibility to protect her from anything negative. That’s my duty,” she said.

So what about the dating rumours? Kelly rubbished off the media allegations as nothing but a blatant lie aimed at pushing the sales.

“No [I am not dating]. But the media will build whatever sells their papers and magazines. I’m a good seller apparently.”

KZN talent shines on Uzalo, thanks to “CG”.


Tilo ngwana Rashaka Mokgopo

The time is 20:30 on Tuesday 17 February and a new telenovela which has entered into its second week is playing on SABC 1. Millions of South Africans are glued to their television screens watching yet another gripping episode of the KZN based production, Uzalo.

Only a few minutes into the show, the character of CG appears on our screens. CG is a typical gay man. He is lively and energetic. But over and above, CG likes attention and he will do everything to make sure his presence is noticed or felt.

‘Everything’ means ‘everything’. It can’t be that vague. If it means adding up extra spice to sound out of tune so that his voice can stand out among his choir peers, so be it- CG will easily pull that stunt. He’s a go getter. When he wants something, he goes for it. He refuses to back down.


After last night’s episode of Uzalo, many people were left wondering who the talented guy that has brought so much zeal and amusement on television is. Mr TV Police can’t deny it- the guy has the Somizi Mhlongo’s vava-voom spirit. Whether you like him or not, his energy will make you laugh in a nice way.

The character of CG is played by Khaya dladla from KZN province. His profile says he’s a performing artist, and can sing and dance as well. He went to Brettonwood High School and later enrolled at a college to study marketing and media related courses.

Mr TV Police would like to wish this new promising talent in our television industry the best of luck. Grow your career my dear. We want to see you enjoying a lot of screen time, not because you are from KZN and have healthy dreadlocks, but because you got talent and talented people like you ought to have a space in our industry.

Any rational human being who understands the decorum of the entertainment industry will agree with me that you are the next “it boy” of Mzansi, if you maintain the hype of course. Keep the fans singing your praises, offers will come pouring in. That’s how it works.

Fheli is back on Muvhango. How did she escape prison?


Tilo ngwana Rashaka Mokgopo

While Generations is making the legacy of new storylines and plot, Muvhango, on the other hand, is making the legacy of +6 million viewership and has roped in one of their controversial characters, Thifhelimbilu to come be part of the moving train again. Joking. Or maybe not.

On a serious note, the character of Thifhelimbilu (real name Suzan Ravuku) will be back on our small screens this coming March. Mr TV Police is excited. He likes Fheli because of her talent.

But the return of Fheli begs a question, how did she come out of prison? The last time we saw her on our screens she was in prison wearing a sky blue dress; and contrary to what Susan may have envisaged; Fheli showed no remorse before the warder whisked her away.

So, three months down the line, what happed? How did Fheli become a free woman again? Mr TV Police thinks he’s got the answers. But first let’s connect the dots to make sense of the situation.

  • Fheli and her infamous companion, Mama are a syndicate operating the “royal blood for muti” campaign.
  • When Sargent Neshehe handcuffed Mama, she remained unfazed claiming that the following day she will be out of prison due to her supernatural powers.
  • If Mama can pull such a stunt, what stops sesi Fheli?
  • Fheli arrived at the royal house and got everyone fooled.
  • Since 2006, Susan and Pfulwani have been staying under the same roof and the two had a strong bond. They loved each other’s children as theirs.
  • But Fheli, in a blink of an eye, managed to turn the two ladies against each other.
  • It wasn’t long before the royal house was converted into the WWE Venda Wrestling Mania, of course with Fheli as the biased judge serving own purposes.
  • On the day Muvhango was kidnapped, Fheli was apparently out of Thate and yet all the evidence points to her as the kidnapper.
  • Fheli outmanoeuvred a mob vying for Susan’s blood. (Muvhango, we are still waiting for Susan’s justice. What happened to her was anti-feminism at its best and criminalisation of poor African woman).
  • Back at the royal house, sesi Fheli outwitted Azwindini and Pfulwani.
  • Before they knew it, Fheli was nowhere to be found. How she left the royal house, is still the question on everyone’s lips.

Mr TV Police says:

Taking into consideration Fheli’s history of duping and outsmarting the people around her, she may have pulled the same stunt in prison. Sargent Neshehe and co proved to be a bunch of useless men in blue uniform. With someone as sharp minded as Fheli, it will be easy to deceive them.

Let’s wait to see how the story unfolds. Muvhango is on SABC 2 at 9 PM from Monday-Friday.

Pastor Mbhoro talks to Khanyi Mbau about fame, long nails, ‘biscuit’ & more.

A controversial show, hosted by a controversial celebrity with a controversial pastor as a guest can only mean one thing “a controversial topic”- and that’s exactly what happened when the infamous township pastor, Mbhoro got invited to a chat with Ms Khanyi Mbau on e-tv’s Katch it with Khanyi.

Khanyi, using her charm and sassiness, sucked the controversial and juicy details out of Mbhoro. In fact the chemistry between the two was undeniable as they appeared to epitomize the same energy and vava-voom!

The two have a lot in common. As pastor Mbhoro said, he and Khanyi are the products of public scrutiny. “Controversy makes you powerful and your competition becomes scared of you,” Pastor Mbhoro said of himself and Khanyi.

The EFF aligned pastor is synonymous to controversy. His rise to prominence was plagued with many scandals, with many people claiming that Pastor Mbhoro was a ‘Satanist’ with the super natural powers invested in his nails.


But Mbhoro (real name Paseka Motsoeneng), who was forthcoming with the information, downplayed the allegations. He told Ms Mbau that his long nails are a gift. Even if he cut them, they grow very fast. In fact, his father had even longer and stronger nails. Perhaps it is only safe to say he took after his father.

Mbau and Mbhoro also talked about the controversial “biscuits” debacle. “Biscuits” is an informal term for a “vigina” in Mbhoro’s world. It was alleged that pastor Mbhoro touched women’s private parts when praying for them.

In what could be interpreted as a way of justifying his actions, Mbhoro told his host that when praying for people, he lays hands on the affected areas. For example, when praying for somebody who suffers from a headache, he will obviously lay his hands on the victim’s head. When one suffers from biscuitACHE (vaginal problems), that’s no exception, he will lay his hands on the affected part.
