Talented actress Londeka Mchunu is a scriptwriter for House of Zwide.
Londeka Mchunu is one of the fastest-rising stars in South Africa’s entertainment world. Her acting skills have received recognition, so she got nominated for the Best Supporting Actress on TV and Best Newcomer Actress on TV for the Simon “Mabhunu” Sabela Film & TV Awards. Ironically, you will be amazed to know that the award-winning actress has never studied acting. In fact, it was her friends who talked her into acting because of her ‘bubbly’ personality.
Londeka has been part of the House of Zwide cast since the show’s debut and is part of the main cast. The actress has proved that she is not just a beauty but also has brains, and the showrunners are also utilising all her skills.
Londeka Mchunu plays Zanele Zwide, Funani and Faith’s daughter. While adored by her father, she desperately seeks her mother’s approval. She proves to be a valuable asset to the business by being a social media influencer. Senzo’s sister. Onalerona and Nkosi’s half-sister
Londeka Mchunu has shown her acting skills in several productions for Bomb Productions. Because of her other writing qualifications, the production house has also given her a job as a scriptwriter for the show.
The actress was pursuing a degree in corporate communications, which she later dropped because she did not enjoy it. When she started acting, the actress saw no need to continue with her degree programme as the course was of no use in her newly found career.
When she landed a role in Isithembiso, Londeka had to drop out as a corporate communications student studying at Varsity College. The reason was that she was merely studying the course so she could have a degree to fall back on. And having found a new passion for acting, continuing the course became of no use to Mchunu again.
Today, Londeka can look up to the likes of international actors like Denzel Washington and local stars like Trevor Noah and Pearl Thusi as her role models. This, according to her, is part of the measures she has put in place to improve herself.
