Celeb appearances ramp up Uzalo’s Christmas spirit

By Linda Ximba

In a bid to spice things up and bring excitement during this festive season, Uzalo producers have lined up a list of personalities who will perform cameo roles.

The SABC 1 soapie boasts the highest viewership in the country and it’s on a mission to stay relevant by not dropping the ball.

Scrolla.Africa has reliably learnt that amongst new faces set to grace our screens is Felix Hlophe, who is one of the country’s top comedians. He will be joined by much sought-after MC and a Gagasi.99FM DJ, rapper Zakwe, actor and TV presenter Lehasa Moloi and South African boxing legend Thulani “Sugarboy” Malinga.

“These new additions will be seen from next week’s episodes. They did filming some time ago and they didn’t undergo auditions but were handpicked because the production team felt they would fit in nicely in their storylines,” said a source.

“From what I heard these celebrities did exceptionally well. Unfortunately their time on the screen will be just for a short while but don’t be surprised if they get call backs for more roles in future.”

Felix Hlophe, who does the Uprising morning breakfast show on Gagasi.995FM, confirmed the news.

“Actually I am not supposed to be speaking to you about this Uzalo thing but since the cat is out of the bag, what can I say?” said Hlophe, bursting out in laughter.

Uzalo’s spokesperson Nomfundo Zondi said:

“As you may have noticed, from time to time we feature different stars on our show and viewers must brace themselves for exciting times ahead. I can confirm those who have joined us will feature in cameo roles.”
