Award-winning director Mandla Ncgongwane has opened up about his decision to cast muso and actor Sjava on his hit drama series eHostela.

In an exclusive interview with TshisaLIVE, Mandla confirmed that Sjava will “Shake things up” on the show as a villain called Fish.

“Sjava has always been such an amazing actor, I’ve worked with him musically as well. He also did the soundtrack for Vula Vala. I’ve always admired his work when it comes to that, so we brought him in to basically shake things up as one of the antagonists within the story, and he’s also doing the music.”

Mandla said he was not worried about the possibility of fans doing the same with eHostela.

“Boycotting Sjava? How about other actors, how about other artists, how about everything else? You know what I mean? So, for me, that’s how I look at it.”

The award-winning director added that having Sjava on the show will help people appreciate him more.

“People have been craving Sjava, they haven’t seen him in a while. He’s been living under this whole entire thing that has been a kind of a cloud over his life. But now he can express himself.”
