When Brenda and her family made their debut in the second season of Lingashoni, they looked like a typical family, but later, viewers realized that there is more than what meets the eye. In Lingashoni, Brenda is a single mother with several baby daddies. However, as the saying goes, the apple does not fall far from the tree, and it is correct in this scenario, as well as Brenda does not have the cleanest of morals.
Brenda lives in the ghetto with her daughter Poppy and her son Japan, and they sometimes struggle to make ends meet. However, her secret finally comes out, and she is announced as Puleng’s mother. Her daughter wants nothing to do with her or her younger siblings as she bears past grudges of her mother’s money scamming tactics.
In real life, however, the actress behind Brenda’s character is not like that, as she is one of the most hardworking actresses in the industry. Her CV is well decorated with the roles she has played in her entire career, as they are many. She had roles in famous telenovelas like Soul City, Egoli, Generations, Mtinzini.com, etc.
