Viewers of The Wife have expressed their desire for Nomzamo Mbatha to replace Mbalenhle Mavimbela as the main character in the telenovela.
Following the announcement that Mbalenhle would be leaving the popular show, entertainment commentator Phil Mphela asked social media users who they would like to see play the role of Hlomu.
Many people on his timeline believe that the Coming 2 America actress would be perfect for the role because she is a seasoned actress with a strong Durban Zulu accent.
The telenovela is gearing up for its third season, and it appears that drastic changes will be made to address viewers’ concerns about not following the original book’s storyline. Well here are some reaction from the viewers.
The Wife without Mbali will be a tad strange because she really dazzled in this role.
The move could also be temporary, should they get more seasons. If they don’t recast in her absence, I would want to see her return.

Get Nomzamo Mbatha to play Hlomu. Mbali has already set the bar too high and only Nomzamo can fit those shoes
