Season 2

House of Zwide is a South African soap opera set which tells the rags-to-riches tale of a fashionable Johannesburg family who bring high drama and ruthless ambition as they rise to the top of the cutthroat fashion industry.

The show contrasts two worlds and two families: one is in Tembisa where the Molapo family reside and the other is Rosebank where we find the well-off and fashionable Zwide family.

Vusi Kunene stars as South Africa's most influential fashionista - the founder and owner of House of Zwide, Funani Zwide.

Winnie Ntshaba plays his supportive wife, Faith Zwide; and Motlatsi Mafatshe stars in the lighthearted role of Uncle Molefe, who brings moments of humour to the show.

The Godfather, Isaac (Jeffrey Sekele) is a sympathetic gangster and former Umkhonto we Sizwe veteran who was involved in the turbulent hostel wars during the mid-'90s.

Isaac is a loving father to two beautiful daughters and a husband to Rea (Matshepo Maleme), who is burdened with the secret that Ona is not her daughter - a secret which becomes even heavier when Isaac finally reveals who Ona really is.

Khaya Dladla plays Lazarus, Funani's life-long confidante who is responsible for interpreting and executing his designs.

Lazarus is always immaculately groomed and obsessed with neatness and order - and he takes no nonsense.

Nefisa Mkhabela stars as Ona Molapo, a young fashion designer who navigates the world of fashion with her BFF Shoki, played by Shalate Sekhabi.

Together they navigate the fashion world, overcoming any challenges in their path.

Londeka Mchunu stars as Zanele Zwide, Faith and Funani's daughter. Zanele is the apple of her father's eye – but still lives and dies by her mother's approval.

Zanele practically lives on Instagram, and she's only recently started proving herself as an asset to the family business through her role as an influencer.

Followers and friends are instantly mesmerised by Zanele's vivacious personality and style and everyone wishes to dress like her.

She's always rocking the Zwide family and business boat.

Nkosi Zwide, played by Wanda Zuma, is Funani and Faith's son. Nkosi is Funani's firstborn son, the Crown prince of the Zwide family.

Nkosi is eye candy, every woman's dream man, but he has his demons. He sees himself as the successor-in-waiting to his father but doesn't have an artistic bone in his body to drive the business.

Sandile (Paballo Mavundla) is one of three interns at House of Zwide.

Very good-looking and with a charming approach, Sandile is also cold and calculating when he needs to be and always aims to win at everything.

Noah Cohen plays the villainous De Villiers - the classic 'ruthless businessman'. Although he is always immaculately dressed, he is not afraid to get his fingernails dirty.

In the Season 2 premiere: Ona refuses to believe that Isaac stole her and Funani is her real father.

Meanwhile, Nkosi grapples as he listens to Faith's horrifying confession tape.

Also, Funani and Nkosi vow to make Faith pay but Benjamin advises against it.

House of Zwide was created by BOMB and is a VideoVision Entertainment and BOMB co-production.
