The Celebrity Boxing Match, which is part of the KwaMashu Talent Show storyline. The talent show has now become an annual event on the series and will air as a double episode special.
Here’s a recap of events leading up to the occasion, followed by sneak peek pix…
In the story world of Uzalo, Hlelo, a young woman still finding her feet, is allowed to run with and project manage this year’s talent show.
It’s something she hasn’t done before and she never thought she’d get the opportunity to do such a thing.
The problem is Nkunzi, the Godfather of KwaMashu, was very specific about needing a wow factor to make the event more appealing.
Hlelo has an idea of creating a celebrity boxing match, and she’s been at a loss when asked which celebrities she has in mind.
But then her tweet attracts celebrity Lehasa Moloi, whose presence in the competition raises the stakes and puts Hlelo in a bind to find a worthy opponent.
It’s a struggle, and the opponent remains a mystery to everyone, including Nkunzi and Gabisile, until boxing match day.
The episode features a fierce on-screen fight, with the surprise contender being returning character Sibonelo Mhlongo (Wiseman Mncube), Nkunzi’s son.
Also guesting in the episode are: Radio personality and comedian Felix Hlope, DJ Hlo, rapper Zakwe, Tik Tokker Moghelingz and boxers Sugar Boy Malinga and Christopher Buthelezi.
Flash fact: Wiseman played a boxer in both seasons of Mzansi Magic’s boxing telenovela Ring of Lies.
