Shauwn Mkhize (Mamkhize’s) in the first appearance on Uzalo


Astute entrepreneur Shauwn Mkhize or MaMkhize as affectionately known within the show business , has made her highly anticipated debut on SABC 1’s primetime soapie Uzalo.

The reality show star plays a personality of a wealthy entrepreneur who drives a flowery Lamborghini and she or he is causing a stir in KwaMashu, as she has her eyes assail purchasing the Kwamashu Kingdown Church (KCC) on the show.

MaMkhize made her debut in last night’s episode and it received mixed reactions from avid viewers of the show. Some thought she was getting to portray a special role as she is understood for living large, while some tweeps are accusing her of apparently paying the assembly to form her appearance.

Here are a number of Twitter users’ reactions:

  • @MrsMagongwa tweeted, “I thought Mamkhize are going to be some Aunt from the village…..she’s looking good on #Uzalo also.”
    @iamsphekhumalo tweeted “So MaMkhize is using her own car on the assembly .”
    @ndumiso_tm tweeted, “That was MaMkhize paying herself to get on #Uzalo
    @Ntsi57418178 tweeted, “So Mamkhize paid herself probably paid even the assembly for her own appearance then obviously she is going to choose her own real family lol #Uzalo
    This is MaMkhize’s first acting role and tweeps recently dragged her acting capabilities as news spread like wildfire that she is joining the show. the talk of #OpenUpTheIndustry ensued again with many accusing her of landing the role thanks to her influence and being rich. chatting with an area publication, she said she didn’t audition for the role but the assembly shot their shot to figure together with her

“Uzalo approached my PR team and when my PR team presented the thought to me, I felt like let me use this chance to offer my fans what they need. “I’m actually feeling excited, dying to ascertain how the ultimate thing eventually came out,” she told an area publication.

She said it had been not hard to portray the character, “For now, there’s not much difference between me and therefore the character I play because if you push Shauwn to the sting, you allow her with no option but to face up and fight and that’s the character of my character. it’s on the brink of who I’m. Maybe that’s why it had been very easy to be the position I’m playing.”

Uzalo has been having a troublesome time with increasing its viewership. Over the past few months, it’s seen dwindling numbers of viewers and it had been recently slapped with a warning by the SABC to vary its boring storyline. This has resulted in returning old faces and bringing in new faces to spice things up.
