Former Rhythm City actor Sabelo whose real name is Ishmael Sango is back on our television screens. Rhythm City recently came to an end after over 10 years of being aired on ETV. Many actors and actresses were left jobless but the lucky ones are getting new acting gigs.
Ishmael Sango has bagged a new acting role on Showmax’s The Wife. On The Wife he will be playing the role of Ntsika. Ishmael said the role came at a time when he needed it the most.
“The role came at a time when i needed it the most. A production i had been part of for seven years had just came to an end. Honestly, it was God’s timing and i couldn’t be happier. I was at the lowest point in my life as i was uncertain of what I’d do next”.
Ishmael also said that he was lucky to get the role as a lot of actors also auditioned for the same role.
“A lot of people auditioned for this role but i am the one who is here today and that is God’s doing. I brought my own elements to the character. I changed his walk, dyed the hair and made him a bit of a comic.I believe he will capture people’s hearts as he is going to bring that balance as the other brothers are quite serious”.
Ishmael is talented and when he was still playing the role of Sabelo he was able to make viewers stay glued to their screens with his good acting skills.
