This feisty and wise young woman challenges the traditional norms of her rural village, advocating for gender equality and fighting for what she believes in,” the statement continues.

“With her university education and deep-rooted conviction, Nomkhosi returns to her community with a mission to lead to uplift her people. As she confronts obstacles and contends with her cousin, Nkunzi, for the coveted chieftaincy seat, Nomkhosi’s character promises to bring forth intense conflicts and showcase her unyielding determination.”

Per the statement, the two will bring excitement, drama and intrigue to the show.

“The talented Linda Majola brings Mzamo Shezi to life with his impeccable acting prowess. Linda’s portrayal of Mzamo’s resilience, vulnerability and quest for acceptance will undoubtedly leave viewers enthralled and eager to see what lies ahead for his character,” series producer King David Mukwevho says. “The renowned Sibusisiwe Jili embodies the strength, intelligence and unwavering determination that defines Nomkhosi’s character brilliantly.”
