Zikhona Sodlaka celebrating her National Film and TV Awards

Seasoned actress Zikhona Sodlaka says her heart is full after scooping an award at the National Film & TV Awards South Africa. The ceremony was held at The Opera Theatre in Pretoria at the weekend.

Zikhona walked away with the Best Actress in a TV Series award for her role as Mandisa on Showmax’s The Wife.

She shared the news with her followers on Instagram.

“We brought it home bantase. I don’t think I fully understood how important it is to know that one is supported until recently. My heart is full. Thank you to @nationalfilmandtvawards for taking the leap and recognising African excellence and to those who held my hand through this journey, enkosi. We have come a long way, here’s to many more,” she wrote.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE previously about Mandisa, she said she was caught off guard by the love and appreciation she received.

“You can only imagine it caught me by surprise, but I love being part of the South African population. I love belonging to this country, and for this country to say yes to me and to see them so invested in the story, it means they really see themselves in it. It makes me a proudly South African true story.”
