Isibaya has added yet another big name to its star-studded cast.

Israel Matseke Zulu (formerly Israel Makoe) made his debut last night as mysterious gangster Cyprian Gumbi.

As part of their latest scheme, conniving Iris (Mampho Brescia) and her lapdog Jabu (Pallance Dladla) call on Cyprian to terrorize Zanele (Sibusisiwe Jili).

Renowned for his roles in Yizo Yizo, Tsotsi, Rockville and Gaz'lam, Matseke Zulu is joining the Mzansi Magic soapie on a recurring basis.

"I don't know how long I'm there. The role starts very small, but they tell me that it's going to grow. I am hopeful," Matseke Zulu says.

"I've worked with the Isibaya production team over the years. Every time they have something suited for me, they always accommodate me."
