A NEW drama series, S'phiwo, that brings to life a story of destiny and bonds beyond the veil is set to premiere on January 8, 2024, airing on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) at 8pm every Monday.

In a statement, Multichoice Zimbabwe's assistant quality assessor Yeukai Kupara said S'phiwo is a rallying cry for those seeking to take part in the richness of a locally produced fantasy drama.

Kupara revealed that S'phiwo will be a highlight on Monday night television reflecting Mzansi Magic's dedication to bringing the best in local entertainment.

"In a world where storytelling meets the spiritual contracts of ancestors, S'phiwo offers a unique viewpoint through the connected lives of two extraordinary girls destined to fulfil a legacy much greater than themselves," Kupara said.

"The story of S'phiwo is one of self-discovery, a battle against unseen forces, and proof of the idea that we are all connected in profound ways."

Kupara said the drama's premiere episode introduces Nothando, vibrant and eager to experience university life to its fullest and Zodwa, a young Sangoma whose spiritual depth and seriousness make her stand out in the crowd.

"An unexpected rooming mishap brings their worlds together, triggering a series of incidents that reveal the undeniable power of their connection. The drama intensifies with a murder mystery on campus that draws them closer to their true calling, a bond destined by the ancestors," Kupara noted.

The drama's cast is led by Zeno Maseko as Nothando and Nozuko Ncayiyane as Zodwa along with Sabelo Nkosi as Solomzi, Ngele Ramulondi as Takalani and Obakeng Makube playing Nathi.

Kupara said the drama series would also be available on Catch Up and on DStv Stream.
