Gugu Zuma's Uzalo airs tonight

2015-02-09 18:00

Gugu Zuma-Ncube may be the president's daughter, but that doesn't mean she isn't determined to make a name for herself.

The actress hopes to build a successful career in the film industry- far away from the world of politics.

We're sure you remember Gugu as Lesedi Moloi in Isidingo and as Sergeant Bhelu in Interrogation Room. Now the nation will get to see Gugu's skills as a producer.

Gugu has co-produced SABC1's drama series, Uzalo, which premieres tonight at 8.30pm.

The actress told Sowetan newspaper that viewers can expect to be glued to their seats. "The show raises so many questions that I am certain the audience will be excited to grapple with and answer for themselves as they watch it," she said.

Gugu added that being a 'Zuma' hasn't exactly been a smooth sailing life but she can't blame her parents for the problems she's faced as an actress. In fact she believes that the challenges she's faced are similar to those facing many young black women.

She explained that she would love to return to acting soon as its her first love.

Uzalo stars the likes of Leleti Khumalo, Bheki Mkhwane and Mpumelelo Bhulose.
