Viewers’ favourite, Motlatsi Mafatshe, plays the comedic Uncle Molefe. The talented Mafatshe will bring moments of humour to the show and the qualities SA has fallen in love with over the years.

The Godfather Isaac, played by Jeffrey Sekele, is our sympathetic gangster and former Umkhonto we Sizwe veteran involved in the turbulent hostel wars during the mid-1990s. Isaac is a loving father to two beautiful daughters and a husband to Rea, played by Matshepo Maleme. 

The flamboyant and talented Khaya Dladla plays Lazarus, Funani Zwide’s lifelong confidante, and responsible for interpreting and executing his designs. He is always immaculately groomed and obsessed with neatness and order, he takes no-nonsense. 

Some of the new faces on the show will include exciting young talent in Nefisa Mkhabela, who makes her television debut and lead as Ona Molapo, while Shalate Sekhabi plays her friend Shoki. They both navigate the fashion world with challenges in their path.
