One minute we're reading reports that he's down and out, and the next we hear he's got a new job and doing great!

But now, only a month after reports of him getting the boot at his last job surfaced, The Juice can report that Mr Yeni has a brand new show to sink his teeth into. has confirmed to The Juice that Melusi Yeni will be taking up a role on their upcoming drama series, The Kingdom - uKhakhayi, set to premiere early next month.

The show explores a heated inheritance battle after the death of chief, Chief Zwelakhe - with Melusi playing the role of the family mediator, Sabelo.

"He is the mediator of the family, doesn’t like confrontation and always strives to keep the peace. He likes to listen to all points of view and consider all sides," the channel says of Melusi's role.

Melusi's debut on the soapie seems so far away. 

So for now, here's some pics from the show until Melusi makes his debut on the 5th of April to whet your appetite.
