Calling in during a live interview between the playwright and talk show host Aubrey Masango on Radio 702‚ Redi Tlhabi expressed her pride and excitement over the play.
"I’m throwing my heart and soul (into) it (the play). I hope the State Theatre is giving you the freedom which (a) talented professional woman like yourself (Napo) deserves to adapt‚ interpret and present the story the way you see it‚" she said.
Khwezi… Say My Name tells the story of a young girl‚ Khwezi who grew up in exile as part of a communal village of aunts and uncles who fought an evil system. In her quest to know her father‚ Judson Kuzwayo‚ and to preserve his political life’s story‚ Khwezi ends up in Forest Town‚ where she is "sexually appropriated" by her father’s former best friend‚ comrade-malume Jacob Zuma.
In the musical play‚ Napo uses theatre license of strong languages‚ powerful dance pieces choreographed by Luyanda Sidiya‚ while the music will be "spiritual" and highly influenced by Malombo music.
