Season 1


uZulu noMhlaba is a South African television drama series partially set and filmed in Ulundi township in KwaZulu-Natal which tells the story of two maskandi artists who engage in a brutal feud over music – only to discover they are more closely linked than they could have imagined.

The series explores two generations of maskandi musicians: fathers and their sons, and each generation's musical (and deeply personal) rivalry.

Having come from very different backgrounds but with a shared passion for maskandi music, Zulu and Mhlaba turn into bitter rivals when they inherit a feud held by their respective fathers.

They learn a secret long hidden from them when an unspeakable tragedy occurs.

What impact will this have on the world around them, their loved ones and each other?

It is a story of music and rivalry, and what human beings will do when faced with life-changing moments that need them to confront their deepest fears to overcome them.

The series stars Ntokozo Vilakazi, Aphiwe Bhengu, Ayanda Borotho, Ernest Ndlovu, Nhlanhla Mdlalose, Bheki Ngcobo, Phumzile Mlangeni, Nothando Ngcobo and Sibusiso Black Madondo.

uZulu noMhlaba is a Sonrise Picture, created and executive produced by King Shaft Moropane and Nhlanhla Mdlalose.

Sinini Manyathi-Mati is the series producer and King Shaft Moropane is the series director.

The head writers are Sayitsheni Mdaki and Paul Grootboom, with storyliners Tshepo Ratona, Pule Hlatshwayo, Collin Mfayela, Vanishia Kisten and Charlie Samson.

All Maskandi music is produced by Ibhlokolo Entertainment.
