Season 7

Uzalo is a South African telenovela-turned-soapie created and executive produced by Duma Ndlovu which centres round two families - the Xulus and the Mdletshes - who are unknowingly bound to each other by their sons, who were swapped at birth.

These two young men carry the hopes and legacies of these families as they face the complexities of money, family and love.

In a country with a history as complex and multifaceted as South Africa's, what are the ties that bind? Is it blood-ties that make up the family unit, or the bonds forged with perfect strangers who often become dearer to us?

Exploring themes of identity, inheritance and beliefs, a shocking secret revealed on a deathbed kicks off this fast-paced telenovela.

Each half-hour episode delves into the lives of the Mdletshe and the Xulu families who are immersed in contradictory worlds of church and crime respectively.

The drama also throws the issues of family ties and loyalties against personal ambition into sharp relief – from loving patriarchs who exert unwelcome influence on their ambitious, young sons, to the tension created amongst family members when one of them decides to pursue their own career goals and reject the family business.

Uzalo delves into what makes these ambitious and successful, yet troubled families tick.

The inter-family unease co-exists against tensions between the two families, who each represent opposite sides of the moral coin in their community.

Linked by an untold secret the families battle for the soul of KwaMashu Township in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, which provides the backdrop for drama, deceit and discontent to unravel.

An awkward love-triangle and lifelong friendship between the sons of the two families provides an additional dimension of rivalry to the drama.
