"Noughts and Crosses" is an adaptation of the first book in the novel series of the same name by Malorie Blackman.
The series is directed by Julian Holmes and Koby Adom. In a 2019 interview with IOL, Mbuli said she believes her new venture is a stamp of black excellence and, “speaks to the young African child, that they too can dream beyond these borders”.
“That you are a global player and your gifts and talents can make a valuable contribution to the world, that the world is ready to hear from you.
“Step up, your hard work will not be in vain,” said Mbuli who is also the author of Eye Bags and Dimples.
