Gugulethu Zuma-Ncube is a celebrated South African actress and producer. She is the daughter of former President Jacob Zuma and African National Congress (ANC) bigwig Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. She is also the daughter-in-law to Zimbabwean opposition bigwig Professor Welshmen Ncube.
Zuma-Ncube is an AFDA graduate and holds a degree in Live Performance. Despite her fame, she has managed to keep her private life under wraps. With a career that spans years, she has wowed South Africans with her unmatched flair as a producer and actress. She has starred in several drama series, including Isidingo and e.tv’s Rhythm City. The bubbly actress has also headlined television shows such as Interrogation Room.
Apart from acting, Zuma-Ncube reportedly co-owns Nyenyedzi Productions and Stained Glass Productions. According to several sources, she co-owns Nyenyedzi Productions with her sisters Nokuthula Nomaqhwe and Thuthukile Zuma. In 2011 she co-produced and starred in Mzansi Magic’s ‘It’s for Life’. The sitcom received criticism after former President Jacob Zuma promoted it on his official presidential Twitter account.
She reportedly co-owns Stained Glass Production with Kobedi “Pepsi” Pokane. The production company has produced several drama series that have won big on small screens, including South Africa’s most-watched drama series Uzalo and e.tv drama series Durban Gen.
However, Stained Glass Productions has often made headlines for the wrong reasons. According to reports in 2015 and 2016, the production company allegedly received R167 million from the SABC and R8 million from the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality for Uzalo. However, the drama series’ co-owners distanced themselves from the allegations and stated that the alleged R167 million reports were misguided.
Despite these daring allegations, Zuma-Ncube’s net worth remains undisclosed. Rumors have it that she is worth millions and is a multi-millionaire. However, over the years she has managed to keep her private life under wraps, leaving many to guess.
