Season 1


My Brother's Keeper is a South African telenovela which tells the tale of a family drawn into a deadly succession battle of its own making, exploring how far people will go in their quest for power and acceptance, with a focus on the tradiotional custom of Ukungena.

Against the opulent backdrop of the Shabalala family empire, at the heart of this drama stands Nqubeko (Wiseman Mncube), Mshengu's (Lindani Nkosi) ambitious love child, trapped in the shadows and yearning for his rightful place in the family.

Nqubeko is headstrong and tired of being sidelined by his father.

Nqubeko, driven by both ambition and the need for validation, sees an opportunity to become more powerful, setting his sights on his sister-in-law Fakazile (Zola Nombona), the key to the Shabalala legacy.

But as he navigates this dangerous path, he finds himself at odds with his siblings, especially Donga (Sdumo Mtshali), the rightful heir.

As alliances shift and secrets come to light, the Shabalala family finds itself on the verge of collapse, with each member forced to reckon with their desires, loyalties and the true cost of power.
