Mxolisi Xulu Played by Naymaps Maphalala on Uzalo


mxolisiMxolisi Xulu is the unwilling hero who has to go on a journey of discovery, from being a good boy to being the leader of his father’s criminal syndicate.

From the day he was born, Lindiwe and Muzi (his parents) were convinced that that there was something special about their son, and did everything they possibly could to ensure that he had the best of life.

Mxolisi was born with a gift, he could sing – even as a baby, he could hum a tune that awakens the soul and soothes a broken spirit. In him, Lindiwe and Muzi saw a new continuation of the Xulu dynasty.

Growing up Mxolisi was exposed to violence, dodgy dealings, police run-ins and extreme excess, as a man coming into his own he is determined to distance himself from this kind of life. Although he does not approve of the family business, Mxolisi loves his family fiercely.

Uzalo is on SABC1 Mondays to Wednesdays at 20h30.
