Shalima Mkongi, known for portraying Ashanti on the Mzansi Magic telenovela Isithembiso, has added YouTube creator to her burgeoning resume with the launch of her own channel called In Bed With.
Premiering with her co-stars from ‘Isithembiso’, Shalima invited Mam’ Nandi Nyembe and Zimkhitha Nyoka into her bed to talk about their morning routines and how they influence the work they do and the people they are.
In Bed With looks to interrogate how successful people structure their lives to ensure productivity and fulfilment. Shalima Mkongi shared her own morning routine which involves an early wake-up call of 5am, tidying up, meditation and a gym session before starting her day with any work or set calls. The trio also share opinions on mental health, their current reads and more.
The Youtube-based show launched with episode one on Shalima Mkongi’s birthday (Monday, 04 June) during the prime time of 9pm to an amazing wave support and engagement from supporters and admirers of her brand. “I can’t believe you guys like the web series. My stomach is burning from the nerves I had. My anxiety made a young come back but wow thank you guys. The response is amazing. Y’all are amazing man,’ Shalima tweeted.
