With three episodes into the highly anticipated season two of The Wife, all viewers could talk about is Khanyi Mbau’s award-worthy performance.
The actress/songstress portrays the role of Zandile, who, after the big jail bust, just had her first few days back home. And after many had their doubts about Mbau playing the role, we think it’s safe to say everyone was pleasantly surprised.
Khanyi Mbau is bringing chemistry to The Wife
When the first episode of the new season aired, it wasn’t too long before it was at the top of the trend list. And as a result, it didn’t take long before Mbau was also trending as tweeps were praising her role of Zandile – saying she’s perfect for the role.
Fans of the show also commented on the chemistry that she shares with her on-screen husband, Mondli Mahkhoba, who portrays the role of Nkosana Zulu.
I think Khanyi Mbau is perfect for this role, it’s the intricate little details that link her and the character Zandile in the book that makes so much sense. She brings uZandile to life 😭 #TheWifeShowmax— ma’k (@NomceboKhumal11) February 17, 2022
And although this isn’t Khanyi Mbau’s first appearance on the show, she clearly found herself within this character – and Mzansi is loving it.
The actress was introduced to The Wife during the first season where she made a few appearances in the show. But now the time has come for Zandile to become a lead role as per book two of The Hlomu book series written by Dudu Busani-Dube.
