Meet Sangwa the character:

Sangwa Zulu, a young and smart 19-year-old from Lusaka, is hired by Janet to be the garden boy for the Sosalas. Sangwa is a young man who aspires to be an architect but due to financial constraints, can’t go to college. 

Sangwa joined the cast of Zuba on Episode 114 of Season 5, on Tuesday 21 September,when Janet calls him and tells him of the garden boy position available at the Sosala mansion. Initially Sangwa refuses the offer because he has other aspirations, plus his parents were a maid and garden boy for the Sosalas, respectively – so surely history shouldn’t be repeating itself?


The possibilities to this character are endless and we cannot wait to see what drama Sangwa either causes or experiences, knowing very well that the Sosalas have an endless supply of it. 

Sangwa Zulu is the character on Zuba,but Jacob Mwape is the man behind that character. With his good looks and charm, we are not surprised that he had snagged this role, and #ZambeziMagic is proud to announce him as an addition the show. 

Jacob: the man behind the character

Jacob Mwape is 26 years old and was raised in Mansa. He started his acting career in 2021 after being a model at a local agency. That’s where he says his love for the small screen started. With his good looks and wit, acting was the inevitable next step for Jacob and in 2020, he managed to secure roles as an extra on Mungoma and Amooye. 

Tune in to Zuba every Monday to Wednesday at 20:00hrs on #ZambeziMagic DStv Channel 162 to see Jacob in action.
