Former Rhythm City actress Nolo Phiri joins Isibaya


Former Rhythm City actress Nolo Phiri who played the feisty Nikki, is now joining the cast of Mzansi Magic’s telenovela Isibaya.

Nolo has been keeping her cards quite close to the chest about this. However, she did hint to her fans that she’s joining the telenovela by posting a video with the actors she will closely work with according to what the storyline suggests.

Nolo will portray the character of Nombulelo Gumede who is a two-faced, streetwise and very manipulative person.

Her character is set to shake things up.

Nombulelo and Saddam played by Sayitsheni Mdakhi were in a relationship over 12 years ago when they were both young and stupid. He was just beginning to run his protection services scam while she was a hustler, conning people for money.

They were like-minded, and their relationship was fiery, and it got to the point where he even started paying Lobola for her. But while they were preparing for their wedding she set her eyes on greener pastures and started having an affair with some blesser. That’s when she left Saddam – only to appear 12 years later with an agenda.

Nolo Phiri’s first appearance on Isibaya will be on Thursday 26 March. The Mzansi Magic publicist Karabo Maroga didn’t reveal how long she is going to be part of the show.
