Zikhona Sodlaka Joins Muvhango


SABC2 and Word of Mouth Pictures have announced that well-known theatre and TV stars, Siyabonga Twala and Zikhona Sodlaka have joined the cast of Muvhango for season fourteen. Yeah soapies are still sold as seasons to tv channels.

The gorgeous actress will play Joyce Mojalefa a wife od Busani Mojalefa, played by Siyabonga Twala. 

About Zikhona Sodlaka:

Zikhona Sodlaka was born in Umtata in the Eastern Cape, but grew up in a small community in Kwazulu Natal. 
After school she studied business administration and IT, but the urge to crack it in the big city saw her move to Johannesburg. 
With striking good looks and 1.8m tall, Zikhona has had success as a model, on TV commercials and music videos and even with a bit part in Generations. 
When Curious Pictures started looking for the new lead character Zukiswa for the third season of Tsha Tsha, her agent put her forward immediately. 
She later played the role of Noluthando in the SABC1 drama series Soul City. 
She was a lead as Noli Ntshinga in the SABC1 drama series Montana, since April 2009. 
She also plays the role of Suarez Baloyi on the e.tv soapie Rhythm City, since 2011. 
Also in 2011, Zikhona played the role of Phakama in the SABC1 drama series Intsika. 
She also played the role of Themsi in the Tim Greene-directed film Skeem.


Sodlaka has featured in a SAFTA winning drama series, A Place called Home. Her film cred also includes feature films such as Jury Divided and Mr Mob, a French feature. 
These multi-talented actors bring a wealth of experience and much chemistry to the ensemble cast, said Muvhango publicist, Kgalema Eugene Mametse. 
The two actors have already started shooting with the production and will debut in June.

Gotta ask though; Mojalefa is a SeTswana, Sesotho or Sepedi surname, Zikhona is Xhosa while Siyabonga is Zulu. I have never heard either one of them speak SeTswana or Sesotho so will they be speaking Nguni while their surname is not? 

Good to see Zikhona back in the spotlight again. I am a huge fan!
