However, what seems to be a shocker to many is that she will be starring alongside Mduduzi Mabaso. The seasoned actor Mduduzi Mabaso is best known for his on-screen character Suffocate Ndlovu.

Mabaso says goodbye to his long-time alter ego Suffocate on the cancelled Rhythm City. Well despite some heroics on eHostela Mabaso has another gig to show up for. He will be playing Elliot, a rogue security guard and low-level gangster who was involved in a robbery with Nox which went tragically wrong.

Well, actress Kgaogelo Monama will be playing Lerato Theledi. Lerato’s main focus is to get out of Diepsloot and to gain independence from Elliot.

Lerato is the great beauty of the group. The smart slay queen who had to grow up very quickly and become a mother to her younger brother when her mother died when she was 14-years-old.

When Elliot wanted to take her and her little brother in, she resisted. She only let her brother move into Elliot’s house when a boyfriend wanted her to live with him in Sandton.

Joining the long list of the seasoned cast is Zikhona Bali. She will be playing Asanda Ndungane. Asanda is the one with book smarts in the group, she is great with numbers. All she ever wanted is to stay away from a life of crime so that she could be a worthy mate for her pastor boyfriend.

Asanda was raised by a deeply religious grandmother who did her best to provide and raise Asanda and her many cousins well.
