Actress Brenda Ngxoli Takes The Lead on e.tv's #Hustle

After much anticipation, music drama Hustle is finally coming to e.tv from Monday, September 26 at 9:30PMHustle is a drama series set in the volatile music industry, showing just how far some people will go to reach Number 1. 


Hustle follows has-been music diva, Kitt, who has lost her mojo after a long and successful career. Kitt released hit after hit to her adoring fan base and performed to sold-out crowds on the biggest stages in the 80s, but now, her career has crashed. She started - off like many great artists - in a performing group with her sister and best friend. Her extraordinary voice and hot ambition made her stand out, and when the chance came to go solo, she grasped it - without looking back.
 
That fame is a distant memory now, but Kitt is trying to make a come-back. Hustle is the chronicle of her bid to return to the top of the charts. Shaking the ‘has-been’ label proves tougher than she thought – the modern music world is very different to the one she ruled in the 80’s. 
 
Hustle is brought to life by some of Mzansi’s most talented actors. Award-winning star Brenda Ngxoli takes the lead as Kitt Khambule and shares the screen with Masello Motana (Neo Sithole - Kitt’s sister and Bra X’s wife); Zolisa Xaluva (Xolani ‘Bra X’ Sithole); Andile Nebulane (notorious record label owner Duma Nkosi); Dineo Ranaka (Duma’s wife Kedibone Nkosi); Lungelo Lubelwana (talented boy from the streets, S’bu); Mothusi Magano  (manipulative journalist Maxwell Motene); Carlo Radebe (music promoter Jacob); Angela Sithole (celebrity wannabe Angel); Lethabo Bereng (Kitt’s best friend, Pretty) and Mandisa Nduna (artist, Thuli).


 
“We are certain that this epic one hour drama series will keep our viewers intrigued,” says Marlon Davids, MD at e.tv Channels Division. “Fireworx Media executed the story amazingly, showcasing Mzansi’s musical talent.Hustle is a bold drama series inspired by real South African
tales”.


 
Series producers Fireworx Media previously produced Mzansi Love, which aired on e.tv in 2014. “The self-assured, yet gritty approach to the narrative, coupled with the sheer impact of the talent on screen, makes one sit up and take notice,” says Series Director Jahmil Qubeka. “I haven't seen a show like Hustle, for one simple reason: there isn't a show like Hustle”.
 
The drama series is expected to create dialogue within the South African music industry - and the country at large. Many South Africans will be able to relate to the struggle of chasing your dream and the challenges that come with fame.
