Is Zuma's daughter really in over her head?

2015-01-19 15:00

Not content with just starring in soapies, president Jacob Zuma's daughter, Gugulethu Zuma- Ncube is ready to take over the entire soapie universe when her telenovela, Uzalo launches next month.

But is the stress of being a TV boss too much for her? Sources close to the new show think so.

Talking to the City Press this last weekend, sources working on the telenovela, starring Leleti Khumalo- Ncube and Isibiya villian Bheki Mkhwane, say that they've run into some serious teething problems and it's mostly down to Gugulethu's  interference with the show's storyline.

Gugulethu has invested a lot in the show in order for it to compete with the best soapies in the land and she's not taking any chances of it being ruined by a lame plot or badly written script.

That's a big reason why the show has apparently gone through head script writers faster than magwenyas at the corner shop and has already gone through four or five different script teams.

Uzalo is set to rival Mzansi Magic's Isibiya and will run three times a week (on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) from the 9th of February on Sabc 1 at 8:30pm.
