SEASONED actress Sonia Mbele is set to join Mzansi Magic’s telenovela DiepCity.
She will enter the telenovela as the sultry yet fierce Zola from Tuesday, 27 July.

The producers of the show said Sonia was thrust into stardom after making her mark on several legendary South African TV shows like Generations, The Imposter and recently producing the reality show, The Real Housewives of Johannesburg.

She said as a producer, she had to become very selective with the acting roles that she chooses, however, acting remains her first love.

“Zola is particularly interesting for me because she offers a new dimension to the characters that I’ve portrayed in the past,” said Sonia.


She said playing Zola is going to be so much fun.

“I can’t wait to introduce DiepCity to her, she is bringing all the heat,” said Sonia.
She said Zola’s edgy villain character will add to the show’s alluring and distinctive storyline.

She said viewers can expect the raw essence of a beautiful yet vicious killer that has everyone eating from the palms of her hands.

This announcement follows that of the addition of Thobani Nzuza, whose role came in as a double-sided Smangaliso and has kept fans on the edge of their seats.
DiepCity is aired on Mzansi Magic channel 161, weekdays at 8.30pm.
