“Xoli is a very free-spirited person, she believes in her own rules and knows the power that she has. She’s not your typical submissive Zulu girl, but lives by her own rules and is very free sexually, hence she knows the power she has with her body,” said Mpangase.

Mpangase adds that her character relates with all the other wives in the telenovela… she’s not stuck up but is kind of a tomboy in a sexy way.

“The difference between Xoli and Lungelo is that I am a ‘girly girl’ and Xoli is brave and intelligent. Xoli does things that I don’t think I would even dream of doing, she’s brave and out there, meanwhile, Lungelo is an introvert.”

“If there was a bit of me there, I wasn’t going to be true to my performance, because I would have some doubts and ask myself if I’m doing the right thing. For me, that was one of the challenges that I have had with playing Xoli.”
