Sonia Mbele says that for 20 years Mmamosa has been putting up measures to avenge herself against a well-known boxer she once had a fling with.
“They met many years ago and he does not even remember her. So obviously this turns her into a very bitter, twisted person who wants to bring him down.”
She also added that the character will be a big hit on screen.
“I turned down quite a lot of offers waiting for this one particular role that will blow everyone out of the water, and when it came along, I just couldn’t resist,” Mbele says.
“I choose the characters that I play carefully. I accept the more exciting roles, the juicier the better for me. As much as I have played a mother before, this is different because I am a mother to a 20-something year old,” she says.
“Once I felt that my businesses were in a space where they can fly on their own, I decided to come back to acting, which is my first love,” she says.
It will also feature other stars like Maki Mokhitli, Modiehi Mokobane and Lehlonono Seseli.
The channel’s programme manager Jacqui Hlongwane describes the telenovela as an action-packed drama, full of rage, lies and love that take viewers deep into the sullied heart of the sports industry.
“The channel is super-excited about this new locally produced telenovela, a first for SABC2. Viewers can look forward to a mix of new and familiar faces, riveting story lines with many twists and turns,” she says
