Socialite, MC and Dancer Zodwa Wabantu is set to take over TV and cinema screens with new acting roles in the next few months.
Zodwa told TshisaLIVE that she is even moving to Johannesburg to start filming on a new TV series that will be released in the coming months.
Zodwa will play the role of a young daughter who tries to help her sister on the show, which will air on SABC 1.
She recently made a cameo appearance on SABC 1’s Uzalo and she said the new show’s producers made contact with her after they were impressed by the progress she has made in the entertainment industry.
“Most people think that I am just a dancer who holds a Savanna in her hand but they saw something more. They told me they loved the way I was true to myself and I wasn’t trying to be anyone else. They had been looking at my brand and they wanted to make it bigger and better ” she said.
Wabantu will also appear on a film that will be shot a few months from now.
“I will be going on set for 10-days. I don’t know if it is an international film or a local one‚ but I am excited to be in a movie‚” she said.
“You will remember when I said I was retiring that it was just retiring from dancing. I am refocusing and moving into acting. I have always wanted to act and this is a great opportunity. I am serious about my job, I am not playing around.”
