Former Imbewu: The Seed actress Fundiswa Zwane says she’s excited to join SABC’s popular soapie to play Nandi because she is such a big character.

The actress recently told Daily Sun that she immediately rolled up her sleeves after she got the call as Nandi has been mentioned and spoken about for about two years now already on Skeem Saam.

“The audience was already exposed to the mystery of who she is, so I did not want to disappoint. I am excited the audience will finally get to meet her,” Zwane said.

WHO IS SIFISO’S WIFE, NANDI?

Fundiswa says Nandi met Sifiso (Bongani Madondo) when she was younger and they have a beautiful love story that has matured into a marriage that is not without challenges.

Viewers have already picked up from Sifiso’s references of Nandi that she is a loving mother and a respectful wife.

The actress told the publication that audiences can also expect a glimpse into a family going through a lot but who love each dearly.

“She is resolute in the space she takes up in the family home. The audience can also expect to be exposed to the rich textiles and nuances of KZN rural life and all its beauty,” Zwane said in the interview.

FUNDI’S DRAMATIC EXIT FROM ‘IMBEWU: THE SEED’

The channel confirmed the news of Fundi’s departure to Drum Magazine in June 2020, but refused to reveal the reason for her departure.

Fundi’s last appearance in the current storyline will be on 29 July 2020.

Since the show’s inception in 2018, Fundi has been a tremendous pleasure to watch as she brilliantly epitomised the role of Ka-Madonsela, a wife whose roots are deeply set in her culture.

e.tv managing director Marlon Davids said the channel will miss Fundiswa’s personality and dedication to her craft.
