On Wednesday Scandal! fans heard the voice of Romeo Medupe's (Hungani Ndlovu) half-brother during a phone call. It's only the beginning because in the next few months viewers will get to know him much better as he makes his way into Romeo's life.
Sandile Mahlangu will play Simo Shabangu - Romeo's half-brother - and Cindy Mahlangu will play his lover, Violetta Mamba.
Violetta is a stylish married woman who is having an affair with her husband's accountant, Simo.
The lovers who creep into the world of unsuspecting individuals by relentlessly plotting and scheming will undertake a fictitious sibling bond that can unsettle even the most grounded ancestors.
In a twist that most will not see coming, Simo will eventually worm his way into the Medupe household.
"Scandal! viewers are in for a treat in the next couple of months," said Helga Palmer, e.tv Head of Local Productions.
"We have a fresh, fun, and vibrant talent pool that is joining the eFamily. Between now and the end of September, there will be various new faces that will effortlessly snuggle their way into fans' hearts and simultaneously drive e.tv's talent value proposition. This week, we welcome Cindy and Sandile, and we are confident that viewers will embrace their on-screen presence."
