SHE IS KING
IN THE nearer future, though, Qubeka will be back on the big screen with a film titled She Is King. “It’s amazing,” she says excitedly. The metafilm is about what ensues when people aim to put on a play about Mkabayi – Shaka Zulu’s aunt – and have to deal with other dynamics. It also stars Anga Jamela, Khanyi Mbau and Gugu Zulu.
“I play a production-company owner and in the play, I actually play Mkabayi,” Qubeka smiles. “It’s a journey for women to finally unite. It also looks incredible. You’ll see South Africa like you’ve never seen it before. And I also choreographed a few dance scenes in there.”
Qubeka will also be on your smartphone and tablet screens through Khabodacious TV, where she gives work-out tutorials.
She is a busy woman, but at least she does everything on her own terms. ● Catch Khabonina Qubeka on Isidingo every weekday at 7pm on SABC 3.
