Mzansi's most watched television show Uzalo is bringing in fresh new faces this year.


The IsiZulu sudser, which is shot in the township of Kwa-Mashu in KwaZulu-Natal, has boasted very high ratings for years and the plan is to continue to grow. Although recent reports reveal that there'there'sbeen a dip in viewership, we doubt producers are shaking in their boots as the show still firmly sits at the top.

Now, in a bid to give viewers fresh storylines and new faces in season 6, eye-candy and well-known actor and presenter, Fezile Makhanya, will join the drama series.

Makhanya is known for his suave appearance and personality, and was applauded in 2018 for shining a light on gender-based violence on Mzansi Magic's The Queen; alongside Dineo Langa.

According to a statement from the show, Fezile’s character is set to shake up Sbu’s world in an interesting way. He will embody the character of a perfect gentleman and savvy businessman whose name is Mpumelelo “Mpume” - this, according to Channel24.

Another talent to grace the show is Thulane Shange. Many will remember him on the drama series Isthunzi where he portrayed the role of Lwazi - a well-spoken rural Zulu boy. On Uzalo, Thulane is set to play the role of Thulani; Gxabhashe's long last son.
