    The Shaka Zulu and Blood Psalms actor Warren Masemola is joining the cast of House of Zwide as fashion designer Alex Khadzi, a design genius who is Funani Zwide’s rival (played by Vusi Kunene).  

    According to Drum Magazine, Masemola’s latest role Alex is a young, bold South African designer who is starting to make a name for himself internationally.  

    “He’s a highflyer, and his biggest achievements include featuring in Forbes’ “30 under 30” as well as winning the coveted LVMH Prize for young designers. His creations are colourful, provocative, and eye-catching, but don’t let the charm and bright outfits fool you, Alex has a heart of darkness.”  

    Viewers should know that Alex hates Funani, is dead set on wiping House of Zwide off the face of the earth, and plans to bring Funani to his knees.  

    The actor tells Drum he’s excited about the new role and confirms he will debut on Monday 19 September.  

    “I’m beyond excited to be a part of telling our story about the fashion that makes the world look up to us as Africa. Alex Khadzi’s approach to the latest streetwear fashion makes it an enjoyable challenge and it’s been a beautiful journey so far,” he says.  

    “I hope they enjoy the journey with me as I tried to represent the creative passion in the youth and how futuristic it is; especially in fashion and textile, social life, modeling, music, and technology.”

    The actor adds that being an on-screen rival of an industry giant like Vusi Kunen is an honour.  

    “It’s been a privilege to work with bra ’Vusi Kunene. An elder in our industry who has always been marvelous to watch on theater stages, on television, and in film. It does not even feel like a toe-to-toe but rather learning from a master every time we prepare, rehearse and shoot scenes. I always walk away feeling warm and safe.”  

    The star is also part of Showtime’s King Shaka cast and Showmax’s Blood Psalms which will premiere on 27 September.  

    “I’m so excited to be a part of this outstanding international cast of Showtime’s King Shaka by Antoine Fuqua, a dream come true.”
