After viewing almost 5000 online entries for the role of Nomalanga, Rhythm City invited 12 hopefuls for call-backs at their studios in Johannesburg.


At a special breakfast on Tuesday, they announced that Nomalanga Shozi will be the newest cast member to join the award winning soapie.

Nomalanga is a 22-year-old Radio DJ, PR graduate and aspiring actress from Durban. She grew up in Port Shepstone, admiring the actors on Rhythm City, and always hoped that she will get the opportunity to be on TV one day. Nomalanga will play the role of Nomalanga, Zolani’s fiancé and the daughter of a mining magnate and struggle veteran. She starts filming early May, and her first broadcast will be on Wednesday, July 13.

“I have always had a dream to be an actress, and now I’ve been given the opportunity of a lifetime, to appear on Rhythm City with some of my personal heroes. I watch Rhythm City every day, and can’t wait to start this phase of my life,” enthused Nomalanga Shozi said.

“Rhythm City would like to congratulate Nomalnga on winning the auditions. We look forward to having her on our set and being part of our talented cast,” says Casting Director at the soapie Nolwazi Shange.
