Zodwa said it was a sign that now was her time to shine on screen.
“I didn’t even know that Ma Connie knows my name. I mean, I know that people know me but to have my name mentioned was great. Maybe they can sit down and plan a role for me. It is like I am everywhere and I am coming for everything. It is only a matter of time.”
She said she wanted to go for auditions now and her ideal role would see her partying in the streets and dancing with Petronella.
“I want to be on the streets in eKasi, a bubbly person that is living their life and filled with drama. Maybe there will be alcohol and lots of different clothing. It must reflect who I am. I will dance with Petronella. I like her. I feel like we will get along even off screen.”
