The year 2021 has been an excellent year for the Uzalo actor’s acting career so far. Nay Maps has landed yet another role in a new soapie which started airing on Sunday, the 3rd of October at 8 pm called Umkhokha.
Umkhokha is an intriguing drama series that started airing in Mzansi Magic (Chanel 161) on Sunday. The storyline is revolved around a big church in Kwazulu-Natal called Ithempeli Lenkosi. The church is viewed as a business because of its many followers. The first episode kicks off with news of how the church has signed a lucrative deal with a beverage company. The head of the church prays for water that his church members drink, the beverage company then bottles the water and then sells it at a profit. The church then gets to share the profits with the company.
The first scene of Umkhokha shows the leader of this mega-church being murdered and the fight for his position begins. It’s a typical story of greed for power, love of money, and betrayals.
