House of Zwide is a South African soap opera set which tells the rags-to-riches tale of a fashionable Johannesburg family.
The show contrasts two worlds and two families: one is in Tembisa where the Molapo family reside and the other is Rosebank where we find the well-off and fashionable Zwide family.
Vusi Kunene stars as South Africa’s most influential fashionista – the founder and owner of House of Zwide, Funani Zwide.
Winnie Ntshaba plays his supportive wife, Faith Zwide; and Motlatsi Mafatshe stars in the lighthearted role of Uncle Molefe, who brings moments of humour to the show.
The Godfather, Isaac (Jeffrey Sekele) is a sympathetic gangster and former Umkhonto we Sizwe veteran who was involved in the turbulent hostel wars during the mid-’90s.
Isaac is a loving father to two beautiful daughters and a husband to Rea (Matshepo Maleme), who is burdened with the secret that Ona is not her daughter – a secret which becomes even heavier when Isaac finally reveals who Ona really is.
Khaya Dladla plays Lazarus, Funani’s life-long confidante who is responsible for interpreting and executing his designs.
Lazarus is always immaculately groomed and obsessed with neatness and order – and he takes no nonsense.
Nefisa Mkhabela stars as Ona Molapo, a young fashion designer who navigates the world of fashion with her BFF Shoki, played by Shalate Sekhabi.
Londeka Mchunu stars as Zanele Zwide, Faith and Funani’s daughter. Zanele is the apple of her father’s eye – but still lives and dies by her mother’s approval.
Zanele practically lives on Instagram, and she’s only recently started proving herself as an asset to the family business through her role as an influencer.
Followers and friends are instantly mesmerised by Zanele’s vivacious personality and style and everyone wishes to dress like her.
She’s always rocking the Zwide family and business boat.
Nkosi Zwide, played by Wanda Zuma, is Funani and Faith’s son. Nkosi is Funani’s firstborn son, the Crown
