Tony Kgoroge plays a character of Zimele Ngcolosi Bhengu on the etv drama Imbewu The Seed that plays Mondays to Fridays at 21h30. Tony joined Imbewu cast in 2018, taking over Mpumelelo Bhulose who happened to be fired from playing the character of Zimele Bhengu for bad behavior. Mpumelelo was a leading and most loved character on UZalo that plays on SABC 1 Monday to Friday at 20h30. He played the character of Gxabhashe who was married to MaNgcobo. Mpumelelo was fired from Uzalo for the same reasons (bad behavior).
Tony has won so many hearts by his amazing acting skill. He has shown pure talent and art through his journey in Imbewu as Zimele Bhengu. It has been said that Tony will be leaving Imbewu this month due to salary issues, following Fundiswa Zwane who used to play KaMadonsela character that is now played by Brenda Mhlongo. Fundiswa also left Imbewu because of salaryissues. Apparently Tony is also not happy with his salary and has taken the matter to the management. Tony is ready to leave the Imbewu if his needs are not met. Tony (Zimele Bhengu) said, ” I’m not fighting with them, but we’re still negotiating some of the things that involve my contract. I’m still part of Imbewu, we are negotiating. We are not fighting”. Imbewu spokesperson, Mlondi Dlungwane said "Tony (Zimele in Imbewu) was in negotiations with the company regarding his salary and contract terms".
No official statement has been release as yet either from Tony or anyone representing Imbewu. However, on the August teasers it is revealed that Zimele will be killed. And that how he will exit Imbewu.
There were rumours about Tony leaving Imbewu, but keeping the Ngcolosi character (just like how they did with Fundiswa and KaMadonsela character). Many people were saying that the Zimele character will be taken over by former Isibaya Actor Muzi Mthabela who used to play character of Duma on Isibaya.
We have however seen Muzi making his appearance already on Imbewu as Menzi who is Zakithi's friend. So this might just be a confirmation that it not just Tony leaving the Imbewu, but the Zimele Ngcolosi Bhengu character is basically coming to an end.
As much as nothing seems to have been confirmed by Tony or Imbewu management about him leaving the cast, but the teasers has surely confirmed that Ngcolosi will be murdered. See teasers below:
