He however faded into oblivion and the gap he left was amicably filled by Inspektah Mwala who happens to be his close relative.

“I left TV to concentrate on other personal businesses but have now come back to nature young thespians in the society. Vigogo is a talented team that has enjoyed working with for the last 6 years and I still believe that the sky is the limit; we must get to the big screens.” Likobe said in an interview.
