Actress Khanyi Mbau is returning to SABC 1 drama series, Uzalo. The star will reprise her role on the show as Dinekile aka Lady D, who is MaNgcobo’s (Thandeka Dawn King) sexy and slightly unhinged criminal cousin.
Uzalo shared the news on social media with Khanyi making the announcement.
Khanyi Mbau is returning to Uzalo. Are you excited to have Khanyi back on television?
In March last year, the popular soapie Uzalo shook things up by adding famous faces to the screen.
First the producers brought actress Baby Cele on board and then added socialite Khanyi Mbau.
Khanyi, popularly known as the Queen of Bling, played role of Lady D. Lady D is the cousin of Nkunzi’s wife, MaNgcobo.
But what was be more interesting was that she has previously been convicted of crime and it seemed she was not willing to change her bad behaviour.
Speaking to SunBuzz at the time, Khanyi said Lady D is the jealous cousin who likes the high life, but luck is not on her side.
“She is beautiful and likes fancy things but it seems life doesn’t go according to plan,” said Khanyi.
She told SunBuzz that Lady D has been in jail several times.
“People must stay glued to their screens because Lady D is going to heat things up at MaNgcobo’s house. Uzalo is a popular soapie and I believe the role of Lady D will make it even more interesting.”
Khanyi said Lady D is similar to her in some ways.
“I am not a criminal and I don’t flirt with other people’s men. But I like the good life, just like Lady D, and I work hard to be able to live the life I want. I don’t believe in taking short cuts,” said Khanyi.
She has also played Doobsie on Muvhango and also appeared on the SABC1 drama Mzansi as Mbali.
In 2012, Khanyi released her biography titled B***h, Please! I’m Khanyi Mbau.
