The woman be­hind S’CHOTHO

Ac­tress brings noth­ing but evil and war to the royal home­stead

Move! - - TV WATCH - By Atha­bile Mrasi

SOUTH Africa’s popular su­per­nat­u­ral drama series, which tells the story of a Xhosa royal fam­ily in con­flict over its throne, has re­turned to our TV screens for the sec­ond sea­son. When the first sea­son of Igazi came to an end, it left many view­ers sur­prised and want­ing more.

In the sec­ond sea­son, the fam­ily war con­tin­ues as Bantu, the king, who is played by Anga Makubalo fights to hold onto ev­ery­thing he loves. No­marus­sia, who is played by Vathiswa Ndara, schemes with her evil cousin S’chotho, played by Zikhona Sod­laka, to re­claim what she be­lieves is hers. MORE OF A WOMAN The first episode of the sec­ond sea­son left so­cial me­dia go­ing crazy about S’chotho’s char­ac­ter. Zikhona tells us what to ex­pect from her char­ac­ter.

“S’chotho is on an­other level this time around, more of a no-non­sense taker. Her mag­i­cal forces of dark­ness have mul­ti­plied. She is more pow­er­ful and confident than she was be­fore,” says Zikhona. “The last sea­son only fo­cused on her pow­ers but this sea­son, we also get to see the real S’chotho.”

When look­ing at S’chotho, one for­gets that there is a heart, emo­tions or even blood run­ning through her veins. Who would have thought S’chotho was hu­man af­ter all? Look­ing at the Igazi trailer, it seems like S’chotho and Jonga, No­marus­sia’s son, will get into a re­la­tion­ship, but only time will tell.
