ACTRESS and singer Thandeka Zulu has bounced back!

Following her unexpected sacking from the popular SABC1 telenovela Uzalo, Thandeka – who played the character of Nombuso Mdletshe – has landed a role in a Zulu comedy movie scheduled to be shot later this month in Bergville, KZN.

The star, born in Tongaat, confirmed her role to SunBuzz but she refused to give more information, saying it was against her contract guidelines.

“At the moment, my contract conditions do not allow me to say anything more about the movie.

“But I will reveal all when the time is right,” said Thandeka.

She said her character in Uzalo helped her acting career to grow.

“Uzalo also helped me to become known to people in South Africa. Even though I’m no longer part of its cast, wherever I go, people still recognise me and get excited.

“Because of Nombuso, I have become an ambassador for KZN Sport and Recreation,” Thandeka said.

Thandeka also played a leading role in the movie Kwaito Church Service2 which was founded by Pastor Mjosty.

Thandeka added that her group, Afrosoul, is busy recording its new album with Uhologo Production after parting ways with KZN Music House.
