About the Show

Isitha: The Enemy is a South African telenovela created as a spinoff from The Black Door, which continues the tale of the Sokhulu family's struggles to keep their family together in the face of adversity as new challenges and new rivals come onto the scene.

The story picks up at a royal homestead in eSwatini where we find out what happened to Chuma Sokhulu, who was presumed dead in The Black Door chapter of the Sokhulu story.

Have you ever wondered what happens when a preacher turns to a life of crime? Isitha: The Enemy explores just that.

The telenovela follows Chuma Sokhulu, a man who left his life as a preacher to become a criminal in a foreign country.

After being presumed dead for a year, Chuma makes a return to his hometown, only to discover that his brother has committed the ultimate betrayal.

With this explosive revelation, an epic sibling rivalry ensues between the Sokhulu brothers.

But soon, they will realise that they have a bigger enemy to face on the horizon.

Will the brothers be able to mend their sibling ties so that they can face this common enemy and reclaim what's rightfully theirs?

In this new chapter, Thobani Nzuza makes a return as Chuma Sokhulu, while Zamani Mbatha will reprise his role as Khaya Sokhulu.

Other characters from the first chapter who will return include Rebecca Mabuza (Linda Sebezo) and Nomsa Sokhulu (Velephi Mnisi).

Dawn Thandeka King plays Royal Chieftess Nomcebo Ngwenya from the eSwatini royal household.

She is joined by Khanyisani Kheswa as Mbuso Ngwenya and Kabelo Thai as Pheko Motaung.

Isitha: The Enemy was created by Mandla N and Mpumelelo Nhlapo and is produced by Black Brain Pictures.

The executive producers are Mandla N, Mpumelelo Nhlapo and Annelie van Rooyen.

The head writer is Eddie Thaba, with a writing team including Bakang Sebatjane, Donald Ndlovu, Sweety Ntshangase, Wilson Shaddai, Elelwani Netshifhire, Makanaka Mavengere, Veronica Nkosana, Kgomotso Aphane, Mashadi Florence Rapeu, Tsale Makam, Mpo Osei-Tutu, Nokuphiwa Magubane and Oratile Mogoje.

The soundtrack is composed by Black Brain Pictures, Jamele J Ross, Senzo Afrika, Kurt Slabbert, Henwood, Bongo Riot and Mlindo the Vocalist.
