Double trouble strikes Scandal! as two Mahlangus debut

Written by TVSA Team from the blog Scandal! Teasers on 05 Aug 2020

We saw that Romeo has a long lost brother in the latest Scandal! teasers and it turns out he's arriving tonight already (5 August).

He's portrayed by Sandile Vincent Mahlangu (Isithembiso, Single Guys, Rhythm City), who seemed to be two different people on each show, but wasn't.

He was credited as Vincent Mahlangu on Single Guys and as Sandile and Vincent on Isithembiso so keep a watch on the Scandal! credits to see how they credit him.

He plays Simo, Romeo's half-brother who's locked in a lust-fest with a married woman who goes by the name of Violetta Mamba.

She's played by Cindy Mahlangu, whose résumé has been increasing swiftly since her 2018 TV debut on Mzansi Magic's supernatural series The Herd.

She's since had roles on The Queen, SABC1's Makoti and the Netflix mystery drama Blood & Water.

And no, Cindy and Sandile aren't related. Would have been too sicko if they were.

Both are from Mpumalanga but that's as far their family bonds go in real life thankfully.

Their characters are going to "undertake a fictitious sibling bond" though.

We don't know what that means exactly but what we do know is that Violetta and Simo are locked in extra marital passion, fuelled by deceit.

Yes, they're kinky like that because they bond by plotting and scheming, pitting themselves against the world and Violetta's husband who isn't on the scene yet. tells us he'll be arriving in the future but haven't confirmed who plays him. You know how secretive these shows get with who's playing who so he's waiting in the darkened wings, possibly smoking an illegal cigarette. If you spot who he is - let us know!

While he hovers, see what you think about the new arrivals when they make themselves known tonight.

These are their character profiles:


Simo is a young, handsome and charming accountant who knows his ways to a woman's heart and has broken a few along the way. He's opportunistic, ambitious, a tad arrogant, and lacks a moral compass.

His drive to be his own boss may have led him down the wrong path, which now brings him to the Newtonian where he targets a member in the Medupe household.

Born and bred in the hills of Mpumalanga and raised by a dressmaker, Violetta has a sense of style. Being fashionable is part of who she is. A slay queen of her times, Violetta has always had a knack for rich men.

She eventually met Mr Mamba, a respected businessman, and they now live in their beautiful mansion in Soweto.
