Mzansi Magic’s Impilo: The Scam

Mzansi Magic, DStv channel 161, has announced the addition of a new late-night drama series to its schedule with Impilo: The Scam, premiering on Monday, 8 July 2019.

The series was rumoured late last week by local media but was officially confirmed on the updated schedule released by Mzansi Magic on Monday, 1 July 2019. Thereafter, the news was re-shared by the show’s official Twitter page, which revealed the official cast picture of Impilo: The Scam. The image was accompanied by a caption which stated, “Impilo: The Scam premieres on 8 July at 20:00 on Mzansi Magic. The community of Alexandra township is up in arms over a pyramid scheme that scammed them of their hard-earned cash. Get ready South Africa!!!!”.

Impilo: The Scam is produced by production house A Tribe Called Story and stars newcomer Sipho Mdingi as Mnqobi, Sthandiwe Kgoroge as his mother Nokulunga and Desmond Dube as Khulubuse, the head of the household who has acquired monumental debt. The cast picture shows the actors and actresses, which also include Nay Maps and Candice Modiselle, as they stand poised in a roofless warehouse with run-down cars parked behind them.

According to Mzansi Magic, the pilot episode of Impilo: The Scam will centre around Khulubuse’s dramatic return to the Nkosi household, which causes conflict and discord. Nokulunga faces challenges at work, which in turn affects the harmony of the family, whilst Mnqobi is forced to strike a deal with the devil out of sheer desperation.
