MAN OF MANY TALENTS
It’s over between Gadaffi and Tshidi… on paper anyway.
Hi tvplus team. I was wondering if you guys can help with some info on the guy who plays Fana on Generations – The Legacy? – TSHABALALA MELOKUHLE CMPHIDATIOUS, VIA FACEBOOK Sure! Fana is played by Mnqobi Duma, who’s not just an actor – he’s a musician, poet, composer, writer and producer too. In 2013, he released his first album, titled Ingqayizivele. Mnqobi came to Joburg from KZN in 2003 to pursue acting and got his first TV gig as a presenter on kid’s show Craz- e (1998- current) the following year. In 2007, he starred in a short film called Joburg. He’s currently studying towards his Bachelor Of Arts in Music And Drama. NB!
Generations – The Legacy Weekdays SABC1 (*191) 20:00
A sneaky Tshidi (Letoya Makhene) has no idea that her family’s No. 1 enemy is onto her and her gang’s plan to destroy him. She goes out of her way to prove her loyalty to crimelord Jack Mabaso (Vusi Kunene), completely oblivious to the fact that he already knows that she’s out to get him. On Thursday 21 July, Tshidi goes to extreme measures to convince Jack that she’s no longer with her bad-guy husband Gadaffi (Vuyo Dabula) and therefore isn’t involved in whatever plan exists to dethrone Jack as the head of the underworld. “They need things to look as real as possible,” says Letoya. But not only is an amused Jack sitting back and watching this charade going on, he’s plotting a revenge plan that will prove that no one can outsmart mastermind Jack at being bad!
BEHIND THE MASK
On Friday 22 July, things get tense between Tshidi and her hubby as the “divorce” progresses. “He’s not happy, but he sent her to spy on Jack and she even had to sleep with Jack for the sake of the plan, so Tshidi keeps reminding him of the fact,” says Letoya. “Getting divorced for real is the best way that they can play the game. But it’s a messy split because of all their assets that need to be divided.” Meanwhile, a deal is being struck on that same day when Jack gets Gadaffi’s righthand man Cosmo (Ronnie Nyakale) to spill some secrets on his boss. Cosmo worships Jack, but we get to find out where Cosmo’s loyalties really lie when the price is right…
MARK OF EVIL
Meanwhile, Tshidi is alarmed when she picks up her son Amo (Noluthando Nxumalo) from daycare and discovers bruises on his arm. Little does she know that Jack has a lot to do with the injury caused to the baby that she and her hubby actually stole from her brother Tau (Rapulana Seiphemo) and his wife Karabo (Connie Ferguson) as part of a different revenge plan last year. “She is worried but she doesn’t suspect Jack at all,” explains Letoya. “According to her, he’s none the wiser about her role in the plot against him and would do nothing to harm her or her baby.” But Tshidi couldn’t be more wrong!
YOU’VE GOT MAIL
Jack’s in full revenge mode himself on Wednesday 27 July when his plan pays off and the next day, on Thursday 28 July, his scheme is put in motion when a mysterious package is delivered to a certain address. “Jack is like, ‘I’m actually going to destroy this family’,” says Letoya. “Tshidi has no idea that he’s behind the consequences that are about to occur!”
The Phakade couple are going the extra mile to make their plan seem real.
There’s no fooling Jack.
