South African reality star and businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize was recently announced as the latest star to join ‘Uzalo’.
Mkhize joins season 7 of the South African drama series and her first appearance will be on Friday, 5 March.
Following the announcement, many social media users questioned how her appointment was made.
Mkhize spoke to Sunday Times about the role and revealed that she didn’t audition for it.
“Uzalo approached my PR team and when my PR team presented the idea to me, I felt like let me use this opportunity to give my fans what they want. I’m actually feeling excited, dying to see how the final thing eventually came out,” Mkhize told the publication.
She reportedly added that she agreed to do it for the sake of her fans.
“Truth be told it was not something I planned to do. For me, I felt like my fans had been asking me to come back with a season two (of her reality show) or just to their TV screens and I felt this was an opportunity for them to see me because I think I owe them that,” she told the publication.
According to Sunday Times, Mkhize says the role she will play in the drama series is not so different from which she is in real life.
