August was Women’s Month, and this gave us at Zambezi Magic a unique opportunity to shine a light on the phenomenal women who bring us black girl magic on and off the screen. ✨

This boss lady is not only an esteemed Tuvwange presenter, she is also a brand influencer and serial entrepreneur. In her own words she “was a girl with dreams...now [she is] a woman with a vision.” Looks like a vision of success to us!

When she’s not Natasha Sosala on Zuba, Sophia is busy flexing her activism and leadership muscles. She is an Africa’s Formula for Development’ lead ambassador, as well as an activist for neurological conditions. Look out world!

Shakirah Saaed-Mwenda

Shakirah plays Nguzu’s 6th and youngest wife Tamara on the hit telenovela. Mpali, but there’s nothing 2nd best about her. She is an actress, a model, and let’s face it…this melaninaire is all kinds of glowing skin goals.

You know her as Malingose from Landlady Meets Landlord. We know her as the woman who single handily transformed the Zambian comedy genre. All hail the Queen of Zambian comedy. ???

Rita Bwalya and Chimanga Munalula

We love a dynamic duo, and you’d be hard pressed to find a more charismatic and engaging partnership in local television than Rosemary and Belinda from Shi Mumbi. Great job ladies!

Wanga Zulu

She plays Junza the matriarch in Mpali, and as clearly shown by these graduation snaps, she has every intention of staying on top! Congratulations on all your hard work Mama. ????
