Ayakha Ntunja Talks About Her Lead Role In Youngins

Ayakha Ntunja has opened up about her lead role in the new Showmax series “Youngins.”

Last year, Ayakha Ntunja owned the screen after appearing in MTV Shuga. She debuted as a lead in the new Showmax series Youngins on 12 February 2024.

The cast includes Kealeboga Masango, Lebohang Lephatsoana, Toka Mtabane, and Thabiso Ramotshela. The new show is produced by the iEmmy-nominated team at Tshedza Pictures. Speaking about her role in the film, Ayakha called it a “dream come true.” She said she’s excited about it because it is a Gen Z show that is authentic.

She told Actors Spaces that, “Every time I received a new script, I was shocked and intrigued and kept wondering, ‘What are we doing now?'”

She further shared that she was drawn to the storyline.

“Playing this role took me out of my comfort zone, and I believe it does the same for Amo. I am learning alongside her, making this season both exciting and endearing. Trust me when I say we do not know what’s happening next; it continues to shock us. I’m genuinely excited about the unpredictability of the storyline.”

She also spoke about filming and playing the lead role.

The pressure is intense, but I’m having fun with it, and I’m thrilled to finally give my all. What’s unique about this project is how we have come together to create magic. We are committed to producing something that people can watch years down the line, something they can watch over and over again because it’s that good. I am excited to see it all come together.”
