The new 13-part Mzansi Magic drama series Nqobile, launching on 5 July, depicts a woman’s quest to rise above marital abuse and begin to live fearlessly.
Nqobile is the ill-treated makoti of the Nkosi family dynasty who manages to outsmart her entitled, abusive husband and take over his empire. She transforms it into a women-led e-hailing service, and with newfound grit, indirectly declares war against her spouse.
As Nqobile is thrust into a male-dominated industry and a new position of power, the show reveals everything she must do to negotiate her freedom, maintain respect and thrive.
