Ayeye has won the hearts of many viewers in recent weeks, and it's gaining popularity by the week. The Vuzu Amp drama series, which boasts a young cast filled with fresh faces, continues to trend on social media every Monday evening.

It has really changed the face of SA television, but what is it that makes Ayeye so different from other SA productions? One of the actors Jessica Nkosi told Marie Claire online recently:

"I always say it's [Ayeye] a breath of fresh air to television. It's current and focuses on issues that South African youth face every day. Young people can relate to at least one character. Working with actors who are my age is refreshing; it's one of the best sets I've been on."

Jessica Nkosi, who described her character as romantic, determined and loyal, also mentioned that they have some things in common. She told Marie Claire: "I would have to say we’re both determined and focused. I also push myself and strive for excellence in everything." Aww...

When she had the chance to talk about herself a little more, Jessica Nkosi shared a little secret (don't get too excited, it's not that incriminating). She told the site: "I sleep a lot! Every chance I get, you will find me sleeping. I also recently starting reading novels more than I watch TV."

The actress seems to be everywhere lately. She's also on the cover of True Love magazine's March issue - looking as stunning as ever - and in this issue she finally addresses those Khaya Mthethwa rumours.

Just in case you don't know the story, there were claims that Jessica and fellow Isibaya actress Nomzamo Mbatha were fighting over singer Khaya Mthethwa. But she seems to have risen above the rumours, all thanks to her agent. She told the magazine: "When I started two years ago, my agent told me that I would be attacked and bullied. So I made a conscious decision that I'm not going to entertain certain things."

And and boy, has she ignored the negativity. I think she needs to keep it that way. In order for you to survive in this industry, you need to focus on your work and not what people are saying about you. Ask Beyonce, who's the queen of cool. You saw her reaction after that whole Jay Z and Solange elevator fight, right? Has the world not forgotten about that now? Exactly.

Jessica Nkosi is focusing on the only thing that matters right now: her career. She told True Love: "I'm too young and too busy with work to focus on relationships right now."
