Musa Ngema from Generations the Legacy

Mazwi Moroka is a fictional character on Generations: the Legacy portrayed by Musa Ngema. Mazwi was first introduced to viewers as Archie Moroka’s long lost son who has come back to claim what is rightfully his. Unlike his brother Smanga – an original Moroka – who grew up with a silver spoon in the mouth, Mazwi is a kasi man who has turned into an intellectual overnight.

When Mazwi was introduced to viewers, he had morals and values, but these had since changed. His quest for power has turned him into an arrogant person who often gets under people’s skin. Ngema admits that Mazwi has grown to become arrogant because of his background.

“Mazwi grew up poor and suddenly finds himself in a rich and powerful family. This makes him arrogant.
“When you give a poor man money, he can easily become arrogant because he believes that he is untouchable.”
Generations: The Legacy’s storyline has changed, exposing Mazwi’s weaknesses especially to those who want to manipulate him into wrong doings.

“He has this sense of entitlement. He thinks that he is entitled to power and hates those who belittle him.”
“Since he wants to be the chief executive and leader of the Moroka business and clan, he wants to appear decisive,” he says. Ngema’s wish is to see Mazwi losing it all and starting all over again. “Right now he has lost himself. It will be a big lesson if he had to start all over again.” [2]
