In 2014, Raphael is a celebrity guest for The Comedy Central Roast of Kenny Kunene. Two years down the line, he presents an award at the 10th Annual South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs).

The actor then leaves Muvhango in 2018 which he had cast in for 5 years. He goes on to take up on the role of Zithulele Bhengu on Imbewu: The Seed.
