The official synopsis:

The show explores the cultural practice of "ungeno" - when a widow marries her late husband’s close relative in order to stay in the family.

Driven by distorted family dynamics caused by greed and obsession with money, Isibopho tells the story of Thandi Ndlovu, a young widow left with the Ndlovu family inheritance.

However her life is in danger due to her new husband and former brother-in-law Sgoloza and his mother, Onica, the classic matriarch who will do anything and sacrifice anyone for what she believes belongs to her family. 

While the concept of the family at war is at the heart of Isibopho, the show also takes us into the murky and dangerous worlds of fafi/ mochina (a form of gambling based on dream interpretation) and rhino horn smuggling.

The 13-episode series is produced by Eclipse TV (I Want to Sing Gospel, Big Up).

Other series stars include Slindile Nodangala as Onica, Sicelo Dlamini as Sgoloza, Jerry Mofokeng, Dineo Lusenga and Lerato Makhetha.
