Just when everyone thought Mkabayi couldn’t be more gangster, the woman proves us wrong.
Isibaya has just made us bow down to one of Mzansi’s finest talents.
No actress has made so much noise in the country since Pamela Nomvete on Generations.
Award-winning actress Thembi Nyandeni, who plays Mkabayi, sent shivers down our spines on Tuesday night. This after she channelled her inner Rambo in a gun battle between the Zungus and Chief Bhekifa’s hitmen.
A woman handling a gun on television is nothing new. But honestly, this was not just any woman. It’s Mkabayi – a woman we see as our mother, aunt, and even grandmother. Now picture your mom or grandmother handling an AK47. Quite gangsta, right?
Seeing her handle that AK47 was so exhilarating, yet scary at the same time. We were never ready for that scene.
Even the social media world was taken by Mkabayi’s bold act.Check out these tweets:
?? ? and the whole house screamed seeing Mancwane pull that action move ???? We were never ready BAUSS LADY YESSSS #Isibaya

And yes we agree, Mkabayi might just be our very own Madea.
We honestly can’t wait for tonight’s episode of Isibaya. Mkabayi has restored our faith in the soapie again.
