Gugulethu Zuma-Ncube the daughter-in-law of MDC Vice President Professor Welshman Ncube has taken over the South African TV  drama industry which has been a preserve of the Generations producer Mfundi Vundla.

The Executive Producer of Uzalo disclosed to South African media recently that she is proud of her works.

"I feel very proud of Uzalo. We were able to do some cool stuff. Getting to number one in our first year was pretty amazing, as was getting those sorts of TV history records that we have. We've just come off last month in which we hit 10.4 million viewers – another record. We had six episodes last month that went to more than 10 million."

Zuma-Ncube who is the daughter of former South African President Jacob Zuma revealed that she is producing another drama called eHostela which is expected to hit the small  screens next year.

"We're doing eHostela 2 next year and so we have started working on that. We're also doing a new long running show, which I can't say too much about now. But in time it will reveal itself. Obviously, Uzalo continues for another season.

"Growing up I definitely wanted to be a lawyer. It was all I could think of or speak about. I did go to law school for a year, I was at the University of Cape Town in the law programme. Once I started studying, I didn't know if it was for me, especially learning about the industry and the sector, the opportunities – it just didn't feel like a good fit."
