It’s the scene you just can’t stop talking about! Pastor Charles and Mgedeza speaking in Shona in a tense moment where the man of God is put on the spot to lie for the Wrong Turns in front of his congregation.

Pastor Charles seems to be a pretty honest guy so we were all crossing fingers for him to go against his values to save a life. When lying was too much for him he resorted to song and we are pleasantly surprised by his beautiful voice.

What you might not know is how hard the actors worked to bring you that beautiful and charged scene. According to Pastor Charles played by the talented Chrispen Nyathi, Mduduzi Mabaso, who plays Mgedeza, is not naturally fluent in Shona and worked really hard to learn the beautiful language for the scene.

Mabaso is known for his incredible acting talent and it comes as no surprise that no scene and detail is too small for him to add an authentic and spine-chilling touch to.

We can’t wait to see what else our telenovela has in store for you!
