Uzalo is a South African telenovela created and produced by Duma Ndlovu of Muvhango fame. The telenovela centres round two families - the Xulus and the Mdletshes - who are unknowingly bound to each other by their sons, who were swapped at birth. The original main cast consisted of Leleti Khumalo, Mpumelelo Bhulose, Bheki Mkhwane, Dawn Thandeka King, Nay Maps, Kay Sibiya and Sihle Ndaba.

The show was largely well received with Gxabhashe portrayed by Mpumelelo Bhulose hogging most of the praise from the audiences. The show initially aired three days a week, with sustained success, the show was eventually extended to five days a week.
