Mzansi Magic is launching an action-packed thrilling melodrama series Nqobile, a 13-part tale that depicts a woman’s quest to rise above marital abuse and begin to live fearlessly, starting on Monday, 5 July at 20:00 CAT.
Nqobile is the ill-treated makoti of the Nkosi family dynasty who manages to outsmart her entitled, abusive husband and take over his empire. She transforms it into a women-led e-hailing service, and with newfound grit, indirectly declares war against her spouse. As she is thrust into a male-dominated industry and a new position of power, the show reveals everything she must do to negotiate her freedom, maintain respect and thrive.
Created and produced by Ayanda Borotho, Adze Ugah and Nobuntu Webster, Nqobile is captured against the luxurious aesthetic of Leondale streets and is juxtaposed with less opulent environments where hustling is a way of life.
Nqobile Khumalo stars as Nqobile while Kagiso Modupe plays the role of her husband Simo. Mzansi Magic viewers are in for a treat as the series also features much-loved luminary actors such as Magic Hlatshwayo (as George), Nomsa Nene (as Sarah), Lele Ledwaba (as Mampoi), Lilian Dube (as Black Widow), Abdul Khoza (as Gugu), Nhlanhla Mdlalose (as Sbambura) and Ayanda Bandla (as Ntombi).
Tune into Mzansi Magic DStv channel 161 at 20h00 on Monday 5 July 2021 for the launch of the 13-part installment of Nqobile.
