The new year will come with more suspense for South African television audiences as SAFTA winning actress Nolwazi Ngubeni will ruffle some feathers through her character; Sibongile Dlomo in Mzansi Magic’s new drama Mzali Wami.
Ngubeni, a SAFTA winning actress, known for her roles in the film Otelo Burning, SABC1’s InterseXions and 1 Magic’s The River, will take on the new role in the drama Mzali Wami– executive-produced by Dineo Ranaka – where she will be acting alongside other South African leading actresses such as Masasa Mbangeni and Lungelo Mpangase.
“I’m very excited to be playing Sbongile. There are a few things, which might not seem normal about her, but at her core, she’s just a woman fighting for her family, something that many women would be able to identify with” said actress Nolwazi Ngubeni.
The 13-part series that launches on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) on Monday, 4 January 2021 will see Ngubeni in a leading role as Sibongile Dlomo, a woman whose dark past comes back to haunt her when the truth unravels uncontrollably for her and her family. This will mark her first leading role as an adversary in Mzali Wami, a show Ngubeni believes audiences will enjoy.
