Cape Town – Brace yourself! There is a new movie in town, and its sizzling cast is getting to grips with Zulu culture.
US actor Darrin Dewitt Henson will star in a new South African romantic comedy called Zulu Wedding, which will hit our big screens in March next year.
Henson is best known for his role as Lem Van Adams on the TV drama series Soul Food, and is currently working on a TV show with US actress Vivica A Fox called Black Magic.
What’s it about?
In Zulu Wedding, Henson plays Tex, who falls in love with choreographer Lungile, played by former Generations actress Nondumiso Tembe.
He follows her to South Africa to prove his love for her and wants to pay lobola. Henson jokes that in the movie he had to carry goats for the first time in his life. “Hah! That goat was too heavy,” he laughs.
Zulu Wedding is about Lungile’s attempts to avoid falling in love. She is also loath to go home to South Africa, where she is traditionally engaged to a king. However, when she meets her soul mate, Tex, she has to face her complicated past.
