- She has been thinking about retiring from the music industry next year, but might consider doing it sooner if she can land a role on TV
- She has even begged Connie Ferguson, the producer of ‘The Queen’, to give her a role on the show
Zodwa Wabantu has been talking about retiring from the music industry next year but she has plans to begin a career in acting and would like a role on Mzansi Magic’s ‘The Queen’.
Zodwa’s fans initially thought that she was joking but it turns out that is serious about this and has approached Connie Ferguson, the show’s producer to give her a chance.
The performer’s heart skipped a beat when Petronella, one of the characters on ‘The Queen’ mentioned Zodwa’s name and she believes that this is the time to make her move.
In the scene, Petronella was talking to Vee and trying to convince her to get married, only so that she could pull a Zodwa and vosho at the wedding.
Briefly.co.za learned that Zodwa is a fan of the show and was overjoyed when she heard her name, she even took to Instagram to share the scene with her fans because she could not believe that it really happened.
TimesLIVE reports that Zodwa had no idea that Connie Ferguson even knew her name, despite that fact that she is a celebrity.
She has already started dreaming about role she would like but she mainly wants to be able to dance in the street with Petronella.
She feels that she and Petronella would get along both on and off the screen because of her bubbly personality.
Zodwa thinks that her character on the show needs to reflect who she is and be a bit of a party girl, with plenty of clothing an alcohol and her disposal.
She is already wanting to know when she can audition but she is going to have to wait for a little bit before she gets her hopes up.
She has been planning on growing her brand and is proud of the fat that she has managed to stay in the public eye since she arrived on the scene, but she doesn’t want to force herself on to people because they would grow tired of her.
If she does appear on ‘The Queen’, it would not be her first time on the silver screen as she has already had a cameo on SABC 1’s ‘Uzalo’.
After Monday night’s episode was aired, tweeps have been in stitches after hearing Petronella say that she wants to vosho like Zodwa and Twitter can’t wait to see her dance moves.
