Nolwazi Ngubeni has confirmed that the upcoming episode of Scandal! will mark the introduction of the Kubekas, following the final curtain call for Lusanda Mbane.
Nolwazi Ngubeni took to Twitter on Friday, 3 September 2021, to confirm that the upcoming episode of e.tv’s Scandal! is set to mark the introduction of the Kubekas. The confirmation post comes on the back of the final episode featuring Lusanda Mbane, who played the iconic and villainous character of Boniswa Langa. Following the final episode featuring Mbane, Scandal! took to Twitter to share the final goodbyes to the actress.
In light of the imminent introduction of the Kubekas, Ngubeni plays Mbali, popularly known as Lady M, who is the wife of the eldest of the Kubeka children, Jojo, played by Melusi Mbele. Her character is described as, “She (Lady M) is from a snobbish family who did not approve of her nuptials to Melusi.”
The introduction of the Kubekas was teased through the confirmation of the casting, which suggested that the family will be “crashing” into the world of the story. It seems that the soapie will take a literal interpretation thereof, as it will introduce the first of the Kubekas, Zenzele, played by Robert Mpisi, as he gatecrashes the launch of Scandal! TV, with disastrous effects.
