Che Nkope versus Nancy comics have become such a sensation on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp.
Mbonera says he mooted the Nancy character in 2009 when some girl from Che Musa was head-over-heels in love with him and used to make long annoying calls to him.
He however, admitted that during the making of the comics, he never thought they would be such a sensation in the entertainment industry.
Mbowela is planning to produce a sitcom that will feature Nancy and Che Nkope modelled around Rowan Atkinson’s Mr Bean.
He released a song titled Some More which features Dan Lu and Nancy. The song is a theme song and was included in the Che Nkope versus Nancy CD but will also be included in his upcoming album.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
