Years later, she made all sorts of headlines with her Nomzamo on-screen character after replacing Zinzile Zungu in 2007 in SABC 1 sitcom Nomzamo. In the backdrop of her on-screen limelight, she switched the floor to play Busi in SABC 1 drama series Home Affairs in 2009. In 2013 Ayanda was cast as Phumelele on Mzansi Magic’s telenovela IsiBaya. In 2018 she was cast as Khethiwe in a South African television drama, Ambitions.
