Season 1

Isipho (The Gift) is a South African supernatural telenovela created by Herbert Hadebe and Busisiwe Ntintili which follows the story of Moses Shezi, a former academic whose peaceful life takes an unexpected turn when he experiences a vision that predicts his daughter's death.

Desperate to change the course of destiny, he sets out to find the four strangers who appeared in his vision and surrounding his daughter at the time of her death.

From his vision, it is clear that these strangers are not in any way ordinary. They have gifts.

Following his vision, Moses - armed with the goal of honing the stranger's gifts - finds himself together with his psychologist wife and a team of teachers in the spiritual arts, opening an academy for the gifted.

The students come with baggage of their own and Moses and the teachers soon discover that they not only have to teach the students to harness and control their gifts, but also guide them to be the best versions of themselves.

The series stars Nimrod Nkosi as Moses Shezi, Xoli Zondi as Nkanyezi Shezi, Thobani Nzuza as Lwandle, Sparky Xulu as Mpendulo, Wandi Chamane as Nomzingeli and Karabo Maseko as Neo; and introducing Precious Ngidi as Ntombi Shezi and Mbalenhle Mavimbela as Tandzile.

Recurring roles include Saint Seseli as Pastor Rametsi and Themsie Times as Gogo Nqobile.

Isipho was created and is executive produced by Herbert Hadebe and Busisiwe Ntintili in association with HerbVision Multimedia and The Ntintili Factory. The superviving producer for e.tv is Bobo Radu.
