Mike 'Khapela' Mvelase (Facebook)
The actor got the rumour mill going recently when he was snapped on set of the popular Mzansi Magic soapie.
"He will play Phumelele’s uncle and will be part of the royal court. He’ll be introduced as the uncle who comes to resolve some nonsense that Ngwebedla and Solomzi have been up to," she adds.
It's understood that Mike has only recently started shooting with the cast, and has not been given a date for his debut yet.
