Actress, radio DJ, television host and the first ever African brand ambassador for Nivea, Thando Thabethe, has scored herself a new acting role.
Thando Thabethe, who played the role of Nolwazi Buzo on the SA’s soap opera, Generations:The Legacy, will star in Mzansi Magic’s new local drama series Housekeepers, produced by Oche Moving Pictures with Portia Gumede as showrunner.
The drama explores the lives and the drama of the rich as seen through the eyes of those who serve on them and see and know all.
“Viewers are taken on a journey of discovery. They learn about the secrets that bind the Zwide family and the people that hold the keys to their freedom as they make their beds every morning; keep their homes clean and are the invisible souls that know their employers’ sins,” says Mzansi Magic in a statement.
