Mzansi Magic telenovela Isibaya has been one of the leading shows on TV since its inception in 2013, but that may be something that may change. A new telenovela Uzalo, is set to air from 9 February on SABC 1 in the same time slot that Isibaya airs on Mzansi magic. So it will basically be game on, to see who will win the viewers over.
Uzalo which is also set in KZN like Isibaya follows the storyline of two children of a priest and a gangsta who were switched at birth. The story follows how the swap affects their lives and those around them.
Former Isibaya’s villain, Bheki Mkhwane (Samson Ndlovu) is on Uzalo with Leleti Khumalo also being one of the lead characters. The show is a brainchild of Gugu Zuma-Ncube in collaboration with Muvhango producer Duma Ndlovu and producer-presenter Pepsi Pokane.
With only two weeks left we all anticipate the new show and see how Isibaya may beef up their storyline to stay on top.
