We (Hapiportal team) are delighted to keep you updated about Historical Epic’s first Artwork

For years, we’ve heard about it, and now it’s finally occurring.

The historical epic drama series Shaka iLembe is now in production, and the first artwork has been unveiled.


Lemogang’s acting credits include roles on e.tv’s detective series Traffic!, the American miniseries Roots, SABC1’s boxing drama JAB and Mzansi Magic’s telenovela Isithembiso.

Newcomer Ntando Zondi stars as Young Shaka.

Nomzamo Mbatha stars as Shaka’s mother Queen Nandi.
She also executively produces.

The series is a co-production between MultiChoice and Bomb (Isibaya, House of Zwide, Isithembiso).

It’s filming in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Gauteng as we speak.

Other headliners include Thembinkosi Mthembu as King Dingiswayo and Wiseman Mncube as King Zwide.

It’s taken six years for the show to start filming. The production has consulted historians, academics and family descendants, including the late King Goodwill Zwelithini and Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi.

It tells the story of the making of King Shaka, from his early childhood to adulthood.

The production has provided jobs for over 8000 people.

The show mixes historical facts and fiction. Here’s a close-up on the show’s perspective from Yolisa Phahle, CEO of General Entertainment & Connected Video at MultiChoice:

“We want people to learn about our history and culture, but we also want viewers to be riveted to their screens waiting for more.” This play aims to unearth historical tidbits, but fills in the gaps with a narrative that mixes real and imaginary people to keep the tale moving.”
