Shauwn Mkhize, astute entrepreneur, affectionately known in the entertainment industry as Mamkhize has decided to cut season 2 of her critically aclaim show KwaMamkhize.

She confirmed it to Drum magazine. “I feel I have achieved what I had set out to do on season 10 want to keep season 1 as my Legacy. It was an inspirational show to build my brand and reputation and I am very happy. I did not expect that people fall in love with Mamkhize but they did and it’s time to let go there’s no need for season 2. I was trying something new and I have achieved that goal making season 2 would not make sense.”Shauwn Mkhize

On the other hand MaMkhize made her debut on Uzalo and it got mixed reactions from various viewers of the show. Some thought since she is known for living large, she was going to portray a different role while some tweeps are blaming her for apparently paying the production to make her appearance.

Recently MaMkhize was dragged for her acting abilities and since this is her first acting role news spread like wildfire of her joining the show. The debate of #OpenUpTheIndustry ensued again by many saying that she had an advantage of being rich and had money to pay to do a debut on the soapie. Speaking to TshisaLive, she revealed that she did not audition for the role but the production shot their shot to work with her.

“Uzalo approached my PR team and when my PR team presented the idea to me, I felt like let me use this opportunity to give my fans what they want. “I’m actually feeling excited, dying to see how the final thing eventually came out,” she told Tshisalive.

She said it was not difficult to portray the character, “For now, there’s not much difference between me and the character I play because if you push Shauwn to the edge, you leave her with no option but to stand up and fight and that’s the nature of my character. It is close to who I am. Maybe that’s why it was so easy to be the position I am playing.”

Uzalo has been having a difficult time with increasing its viewership. Numbers of viewers has been dwindling over the past months and it was recently given with a warning by the SABC to change its boring storyline. Due to the slap they received, they have returned old faces and brought in new faces to spice things up.
