It’s also responsible for bringing shows like Uzalo, eHostela Ifalakhe, and the more recent medical drama Durban Gen.\ Gugu Zuma Ncube previously spoke about the whole experience of storytelling saying “Over the years I’ve honed how to tell these stories in the most dramatic and creative ways possible and also how to work with other people as well. I don’t think any one person can have all the best ideas and so using other people to bring in elements that might be in my blind spot makes everything stronger”.
