Lerato Mvelase to star in new drama series Icala

Lerato Mvelase will helm a new thrilling thirteen-part series called Icala along with the charismatic Bheki Sibiya from eHostela.

The premise shows a guy who is totally reckless, only thinks about himself, and believes his days are numbered. So he spills the beans and confesses to his loving yet vengeful wife about the secret child he had with her best friend forever. But hold on tight, because here comes the plot twist—he doesn’t kick the bucket! Instead of calling it quits on their marriage, his wife decides to take matters into her own hands and concoct a bone-chilling revenge plan against both guilty parties.


Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net, says, “Our Mzansi Magic Mondays are already bursting with local gems. But with Icala, expect an overload of emotions. A soul-stirring story, blended with some laughs, it’s real, it’s raw, and trust us, you don’t want to miss this rollercoaster.”

Icala starts Monday, October 9, at 8 p.m. sharp, only on DStv channel 161. Lerato Mvelase graduates with Postgrad Diploma in Business Management
