Nigerian actor Fabian Lojede joins BET Africa drama series, ISONO

Fabian Lojede has been announced as the latest cast of the star-studded cast of BET Africa’s original drama series, ISONO.

The telenovela, which airs every Monday to Thursday on DStv Channel 129 and GOtv Channel 21 at 20:30 WAT/21:30 CAT, is set to take audience excitement to a new whole level.

The multi-talented actor and producer will be playing the brother of Pastor Abiola – a wandering Nigerian pastor who is serving as a stand-in at a church in Vosloorus, South Africa, following the previous pastor’s suicide.

Fabian began his paid creative career in 1998 as a copywriter and freelance voice-over artist.

He has since then grown to become an internationally acclaimed actor, thanks to his unforgettable role as Bola Abayomi in the Pan African drama series Jacob’s Cross in 2007.

Fabian also gathered rave reviews for his role in Man On Ground; a film he co-produced, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and screen at the Berlin Film festival and Dubai film festival.

Commenting on the recent development, Monde Twala, Senior Vice President and General Manager, ViacomCBS Networks Africa, said, “Beyond serving as an authentic means of celebrating our African heritage through powerful storytelling, Isono also promotes the best of African talent.

“Fabian is an accomplished actor that has worked extensively in South Africa’s creative space for the past 18 years. With his arrival on scene as a member of Pastor Abiola’s family, I am confident that he will add a fresh burst of energy to the Isono drama series”.

“The story world demands that we are continuously introducing a more dynamic and culturally diverse approach that every African can be proud of.”
