Im­bewu star lands ra­dio spot

Sowetan - - News - By Pa­tience Bam­balele

Im­bewu star Raphael Grif­fiths is spread­ing his wings to ra­dio.

Grif­fiths, who made his name play­ing Vusi Muk­w­evho on the SABC2 soapie Mu­vhango, has joined KwaZu­luNatal’s re­gional com­mer­cial sta­tion Ga­gasi FM.

Cur­rently por­tray­ing Zithulele on e.tv’s Im­bewu: The Seed, the ac­tor is ex­cited to fi­nally break into ra­dio.

Grif­fiths and his friend of 10 years, Lun­gelo Sit­hole aka Lu­nique, host a show on Sat­ur­day and Sun­day be­tween 1am and 4am.

“We have been send­ing in demos for years and fi­nally Ga­gasi gave us a chance.

“So far so good and we are en­joy­ing our­selves,” Grif­fiths said.

“Our show tar­gets peo­ple who are go­ing to par­ties or those driv­ing from par­ties. And, there are those who start work at 5am.”

Ga­gasi FM PR and mar­ket­ing manager Khulekani Shandu said: “We saw that they both fit in at our sta­tion. We be­lieve they will de­liver.”
