Sibongile & The Dlaminis return for season 2

DStv’s beloved telenovela, Sibongile & the Dlaminis, has been given the green light for a second season. However, fans will be disappointed to learn that the talented leading actress, Luyanda “Lou” Zwane, will not be reprising her role.



City Press and DSTv have uncovered the exciting news that actress Nsikelelo Mthiyane, who is relatively fresh in the TV industry, has landed the role of Sibongile, succeeding Zwane.According to an insider, Mthiyane wasted no time and began shooting earlier this week.

A source revealed: When they started filming for season 2, Luyanda had already left, so they had to find another person to take over the role. Filming started as they were looking for a replacement. They’ve finally found one and she’s a fresh face, just like Luyanda was when she started.

The story of Sibongile (formerly played by Luyanda Zwane), a vibrant small-town girl’s dream of studying to better her and her family’s lives continues to unfold after her drama-filled and short-lived romance with Kwenzo ends. In season 1, viewers saw Sibongile’s heart being crushed by Nomalanga’s pregnancy with Kwenzo’s child, she had to go back home to the village in Ixopo and deal with her ‘not-so-motherly’ stepmum, Deliwe, and face her disappointed father until the truth about her circumstances came out.

In season 2, newcomer Nsikelelo Mthiyane takes over the role of Sibongile, and the story continues as viewers will see even more explosive secrets exposed, confrontations, and, of course, gossip from Nomfundo’s squad (the Dlamini helpers). Most exciting is the addition of new cast members to the story, who are sure to shake things up for both the Dlaminis and Sibongile’s family.

“Sibongile & The Dlaminis has been a gift that keeps on giving for our audiences, with season 1 surpassing one million viewership numbers, and we can proudly say that it has been a resounding success,” says Shirley Adonisi, director for local entertainment channels. “We are excited to embark on this second chapter of Sibongile’s journey, and we know that the new additions and changes will make this story even more exciting.”

So, does Phetheni find out about the love triangle she is unknowingly part of? Will Vuma ever forgive Deliwe and take her back? What of Nomalanga’s pregnancy and Gcina’s involvement? Most importantly, does Sibongile finally get to have her ‘Cinderella’ moment with Kwenzo?

Tune in for the premiere of season 2 of Sibongile & The Dlaminis on Mzansi Wethu, DStv Channel 163, from July 29 Monday–Wednesday at 18:30.
