The Royal AM owner Shauwn “MaMkhize” Mkhize made headlines on Tuesday, 16 August when Daily Sun revealed she started shooting for a cameo role in Durban Gen and will make an appearance in October this year.   

Though the millionaire businesswoman MaMkhize denied joining the medical drama, the show’s spokesperson Nomfundo Zondi confirmed her role.  

“Businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize has ventured into acting as she has joined Durban Gen,” Zondi said.  

According to the publication MaMkhize, who landed the cameo role also landed a role in Uzalo under the same production Stained Glass TV.   

“She got a cameo role just like what happened on Uzalo. She started shooting last month.  

“There were clashes with her schedule as she is a busy woman. And she had to postpone her shootings but she comes when her schedule allows her to do so. The plan is for her to appear in October. She won’t stay long as her role is a cameo,” said the source.
