Tweeps React To Mamkhize’s Debut On Uzalo
Smart entrepreneur Shauwn Mkhize or MaMkhize as warmly known in the entertainment industry, has made her highly awaited debut on SABC 1’s primetime soapie Uzalo. The reality show star plays a character of a wealthy entrepreneur who drives a fancy Lamborghini and she is causing a mixture in KwaMashu, as she has her eyes set on purchasing the Kwamashu Kingdown Church (KCC) on the show.
MaMkhize made her debut in last night’s episode and it received mixed reactions from keen viewers of the show. Some thought she was going to portray a different role as she is known for living large, while some tweeps are accusing her of apparently paying the production to make her appearance.

This is MaMkhize first acting role and tweeps recently dragged her acting capabilities as news spread like wildfire that she is joining the show. The debate of #OpenUpTheIndustry ensued again with many accusing her of landing the role due to her influence and being rich. Speaking to TshisaLive, she said she did not audition for the role but the production shot their shot to work with her.

“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,” she told Tshisalive.
So Mamkhize paid herself probably paid even the production for her own appearance then obviously she will choose her own real family lol #Uzalo

She said it was not hard to portray the character, “For now, there’s not much difference between me and the character I play because if you push Shauwn to the edge, you leave her with no option but to stand up and fight and that’s the nature of my character. It is close to who I am. Maybe that’s why it was so easy to be the position I am playing.”
