Award-winning South African musician Sjava, who also dabbles in acting, and TV personality Ntando Duma, appeared in the latest episode of Shaka iLembe.

Playing the character Bhibhi kaSompisi, Duma doesn't take long to come between a happy family by causing conflict between Queen Nandi kaMbengi, Senzangakhona kaJama, and their son Shaka. Bhibhi is manipulative and conniving and will do whatever it takes to sink her claws deeper into Senzangakhona, who seems oblivious to this.

When the episode concludes, Nandi and her children are kicked out of their home, courtesy of Bhibhi.

Twitterville praised Duma for her splendid portrayal of the character. See some of your comments here.

Sjava, whose real name is Jabulani Hadebe, also had the nation beaming, with social media fielding a tsunami of congrats. Sjava played Bhungane, king of the Hlubis, who comes to Godongwana's aid when he needs a place to hide after his father, King Jobe, ordered his death.
