How Gomora Beat The Queen To Become Mzansi Magic Most Watched Soapie
For one, the casting is superb and strikes a balance between veteran actors and the supporting actor and this has made the drama series explode into the limelight. The River and The Queen boast with a number of well-seasoned actors which have made a mark in the entertainment industry. Actors like Brenda, SK Khoza, Rapulana Seiphemo and award-winning actors like Brenda Ngxoli have failed to make a mark as the script works against them.
Whilst actors like Katlego Danke, Connie Chiume, and Zolisa Xaluva are shining on Gomora as they stepped out of their comfort zones by taking on roles that are the exact opposite of their usual roles.
Connie Chiume who was known for her sweet, kind, and motherly role of MamoKete on Rhythm City has now taken a role of a vicious, manipulative and at times hilarious gangster MamSonto and delivers it exceptionally. It never feels forced like the case with The Queen’s Harriet Khoza.
Katlego Danke who usually takes on pinkish, cute roles as a professional is now a hijacker who could be holding a gun for the first time. Such changes are refreshing to see. Everyone remembers Zolisa Xaluva as Diamond Mabuza from The Queen. He was spectacular as a villain and absolutely thrilling to watch. We never got enough of his villainy because it felt real and all the girls had a soft spot for his character.
