Do you love anything that has to do with dance? Well, this is for you. After a lot of hype and excitement on social media, Netflix’s Jiva lived up to what it had promised and it got nothing, but great reviews. As the lead actors of the entertaining dance series enjoy the unending praise from fans and peers alike, two of the lead actresses Candice Modiselle and Noxolo Dlamini have opened up about how intimidated they were to play their respective roles.

Candice Modiselle - who has starred in a lot of big local productions including Generations: The Legacy and The Queen, plays Vuyiswa while Noxolo Dlamini who has been making moves in the theatre space plays the lead role of Ntombi.

The pair got to chatting with YAZA, about the whole process that saw them audition and later bag the role for one of the most critically acclaimed Netflix original projects. 27-year-old Candice said she originally received the brief about Jiva from my agent and she auditioned for the role of Nolwazi (played by Zazi Kunene) however they asked her to audition for Vuyiswa.
