Gomora actress Zodwa set for a salary increase as rival soapies sniff around
Actress Sannah Mchunu often credited as Sana Mchunu, plays the role of Zodwa on Gomora. Nicknamed Mzozozo on Gomora, Sannah wore the Zodwa character with pride and excellence producing scenes to remember and quickly become the fans favourite. Through her exceptional natural talent, Sannah has attracted the attention of both local and regional production houses, making it hard for Gomora producers to keep their jewel on the Mzansi Magic telenovela.
Recently tipped to win big at the following Awards ceremony by entertainment commentator Phil Mphela Sannah’s talent couldn’t go unnoticed as she tops Twitter trends every mid-week evening.
Zodwa on Gomora
The Zodwa role on Gomora is a recovering alcoholic, mother to Teddy (Sicelo Buthelezi) and stepmother to Sibongile (Nandipha Khubone). She previously had a romantic history with Don, which resulted in Teddy’s birth. She currently has a relationship with Bongani (Thulani Mtsweni).
Zodwa is high school friends with Gladys, who always come to her rescue in times of need. Due to her addiction to alcohol with the help of Gladys, Zodwa was taken to rehab and briefly worked at Gomora High School before she was employed by the Dlamini’s.
A protective mother who fights for her son, Zodwa turns offensive when she feels threatened by Gladys, whom she always suspects to have an agenda of taking Teddy away.
Zodwa carried out the Lord’s work by ending the life of Don with a gun after he threatened Ntokozo and already shot Mazet. Shooting Don was the genesis of her problems, dealing with police and Sibongile (Don’s daughter), her stepdaughter. Sibongile made sure that Mzozozo wouldn’t forget about her father anytime soon, through torture leading her to turn to an old friend, alcohol.
Production houses after Sannah Mchunu’s signature
After consistent performances, Sannah has captured and invited many eyeballs, including rival soapie production houses.
In a filming industry where soap opera storylines are changing, Gomora producers Seriti Films might face a torrid time to keep her on their cast. According to close sources, Sannah is expected to be tied up by a R 95 000 per month bumper contract to fend away competitors from snatching their fan favourite.
