TV personality Nonhle Thema will make her debut in Mzansi Magic’s Lokshin soapie, Zabalaza soon.

Nonhle will play the role of Kgomotso, the pregnant, unwanted, nagging girlfriend of Moss Cele (Matli Mohapeloa).

She replaces Nolwazi Shange, who introduced Kgomotso as a shy, sweet girl when Zabalaza debuted on Mzansi Magic in May this year. Thema will continue Kgomotso’s journey to marry into the Celes, the family at the centre of Zabalaza’s action.

“I’m thrilled at the opportunity to join the cast of Zalabalaza,” says Nonhle.

“Not only is the show first of its kind in the genre of Lokshin soapies but the cast have done a great job of bringing a township story right into the homes of viewers all over the country. It is going to be wonderful to be part of that.”

Nonhle first surfaced on the Mzansi entertainment scene a decade ago when she joined Channel O in 2003, eventually became a fixture at the original African music channel, appearing on shows like Soul Asylum, Hola, Love Jams, Divas Divine, Oboma, O News, and Street Bangers.

It was on Channel O’s O Access that Thema proved her global clout when she travelled the world to interview international celebrities for this landmark show. Her hosting of a number of editions of the Channel O Music Video Awards also earned her kudos.

Zabalaza is broadcast Mondays to Thursdays 21:00 on Mzansi Magic (Channel 161) and also on M-Net’s brand new, local, general entertainment offering, Mzansi Wethu (Channel 163) in the same timeslot starting on December 2nd.
