The rumors are true, Lerato Kganyago is set to join the award winning SABC2 soapie, Muvhango. The talented actress will debut in the drama as the complex character, Mmasebotsane, in the first week of June.
Mmasebotsane is described as a beautiful girl with an almost pompous but, deep down inside, lies a timid girl whose life revolves around making everyone around her happy. She is just as gullible as she is independent and is always willing to do just about anything to get what she wants. She is an intelligent young woman who always strives to achieve the best in all she does. Generally, she is overly confident, well-spoken and fierce.
“Muvhango has been leading the pack with juicy storylines, surprises and plot twist over the past few years. As we evolve, the story allows for new characters like Masebotsane. After doing a round of auditions, we felt that Lerato perfectly fitted the bill to play the role of Mmasebotsane. She brings a wealth of experience even though her contract is limited. We trust our viewers will warm up to her charisma and great personality on screen,” said SABC2 publicist, Lebo Malete.
Kganyago officially began her journey to stardom in 2002 when she was crowned Miss Jam Alley and later Miss Soweto in 2005. She is an all-round entertainer who wears many hats and has been featured on different programmes including Good Morning Brazil, a sports show on SABC1 run during the 2014 World Cup. She was recently also cast in a cameo role on the SABC2 sitcom Skwizas.
Watch Muvhango from Mondays to Fridays at 21:00 on SABC2.
