It’s almost three weeks since the astute entrepreneur Shauwn Mkhize, who is affectionately known by her fans as MaMkhize, joined the famous soapie Uzalo on SABC1.
Ever since her acting debut, there have been mixed reactions, as avid viewers of the soapie try to get an insight into the essence of her role.
In the soapie, she is this mysterious wealthy woman, with an eye on the coveted KwaMashu Kingdom Church.
And yes, she uses her real name to play her character.
“I am extremely excited for the guest appearance on Uzalo, what a fun experience it was to join the cast. I can’t wait to see another side of my many hidden talents,” the star told IOL just a few days before her maiden appearance on the screen.
The question is: Is she nailing it or not?
Here is what the tweeps have been saying:

Is Mamkhize getting paid? Or maybe her salary goes to charity? #Uzalo #uzaloseason7 pic.twitter.com/23ypeFyHT8

Wasn't there any poor actor who could have been appointed to play this role rather than giving the rich maMkhize
