Rising star Gaisang Noge – who plays Mampho in House of Zwide recently opened up about her latest role as Naledi – Qhawe’s wife in Showmax’s hit telenovela – The Wife.   

According to Drum Magazine Noge’s character – Naledi is a doctor who falls for Qhawe Zulu played by Kwenzo Ngcobo.  

She is the third wife to join the show after Hlomu played by Mbali Mavimbela and Zandile played by Khanyi Mbau.   

Naledi will learn that being in a relationship with a Zulu brother means loving all of his dark and tumultuous past just like Hlomu did with Mqhele and Zandile is doing with Nkosana.  

As much as she will enjoy the trappings that come with being the wife of one of those rich, handsome, powerful, and dangerous men, she must also live with the inherent danger that remains.

The actress reveals that she has a connection with Kwenzo who plays Qhawe as he’s very kind and helpful in assisting her with anything Naledi and Qhawe related. 

She was nervous about auditioning for the role because she loved Naledi as she’s sweet and loving.  

Naledi expresses her love and isn’t afraid to give people her heart.   

Noge adds that there was pressure for her to step into the role because it already exists and people love her already.   

She also read the books and took a lot from the book: the essence of who she is, her mannerisms, the things that she does.   

I started using nude nail polish because that’s what Naledi does. I’ll eat a certain type of food because she does that. I started copying a lot of the way she lives in my own life.   


“They going to ruin Naledi and Qhawe’s love story. I can just tell.”


“They ruined it already when they made him sleep with Hlomu.” 


“Totally agree with that. The twist is just too much and having to align to this book will be difficult but all the books have been ruined anyway.”  


“Lol so she was supposed to gain weight first?”

“If she did you would still say in the book she used to wear size five shoes, or she had a small nose.”

“You are always waiting to criticise something.”


“I am just going to be happy that Naledi is here, that was my favourite love story.”

“Hope her sisters, father and stepmother also come alive in the series.”

“I wonder if the chubbiness has been removed. Congratulations and welcome to Naledi”
