The dazzling thespian who played Zodwa, Xoli Zondi is a beacon of inspiration in Mzansi.

There was a time on South African Televison when a certain love triangle got people on the edge of their seats and excitedly wanting more.

It was a time when Generation The Legacy on SABC 1 was still simply called 'Generations' . 

I am pretty certain we all recall the character 'Nicholas 'played by Thatho Molamu being involved in a pretty complicated situation where he had to choose between his longtime girlfriend 'Akhona' played by Maggie Benedict and their maid 'Zodwa' played by the woman who brought sparks to the whole situation .

I am talking about the dazzling Xoli Zondi . An exceptionally talented thespian who has made a name for herself in the South African entertainment industry as a captivating actress who is good in protraying any character assigned to her.

It was really unfortunate that the then version of Generations was cancelled, Mzansi had fallen deeply in love with Xoli Zondi 's obsessed lunatic character 'Zodwa'.

Zodwa had people talking for day on end and Generations ' viewership grew during the character 's domination in the soapie. 

Xoli 's days on Generations assisted in elevating her acting resume which opened a lot of doors for her in the acting industry .

After Generations she got involved in many acting projects for different Televison channels including Mzansi Wethu 's Lokshin Biskop and 's eKasi our stories.

She was also on 's Isipho , The gift as the main character 's wife played Nimrod Nkosi . She potrayed the character of a loyal and kind partner to a man who was in charge of a school for super naturally gifted people.

As always Xoli 's craft as an actress is impressive and brilliant. Her talent is spontaneous making her a unique display of on screen artistry.

Besides being an amazing actress . Xoli is a motivational speaker and a qualified career guidance counselor. Talk about beauty with brains.

She is an inspirational individual and it was an honor to cover a piece regarding her brilliance.
