Activist and actor Tony Kgoroge is tipped to take over Mpumelelo Bhulose's character on drama series Imbewu: The Seed.

The president of Cultural and Creative Industries Federation of South Africa will portray the role of Zimele Ngcolosi Mkhize, from which Bhulose was fired recently.

Sources close to Imbewu production said Kgoroge was in Durban recently where he was shooting the scenes. He is expected to start appearing on Imbewu next month.

Kgoroge confirmed he would appear on soon but refused to name the show.

"I can confirm that I am doing a production for but I cannot talk about it at the moment because I have not signed a contract. But it is not Imbewu," Kgoroge said laughing.

Michael Pocock, the publicist for, said: "The official announcement regarding new talent on Imbewu will be made in due course."

Imbewu is about a businessman who has built a business empire and wants his children to take over from him.

Kgoroge joins the drama series just as Zimele makes a shocking discovery that none of the children he has built this empire for are his.
