South African actress Zikhona Sodlaka plays the role of Mandisa on the Showmax drama series The Wife, a production inspired by Hlomu The Wife book written by Dudu Busani-Dube. On The Wife, Mandisa plays the role of Nqoba Zulu’s (Abdul Khoza) girlfriend and baby mama; she is the mother to 6-year-old Ndumiso.

Mandisa struggles to get Nqoba to put a ring on her finger; she tries all tricks and shenanigans to get him to marry her. After changing Ndumiso’s surname to adopt hers, she truly cornered Nqoba, who quickly facilitated the traditional paying of damages. Upon the Nqoba and his brothers’ arrival to negotiate payment of damages, there were surprised by a hot-headed uncle. He demanded that they pay the bride price (lobola) after paying damages worthy R80 000.
