Comparison of Harriet and MaSonto’s salaries
The Queen actress Harriet and Gomora star MaSonto are among the most paid actress in Mzansi. However, they work for different production companies, making their salaries different.

As of 2022, Harriet is taking home a salary of R100 000 for her lead role on The Queen. On set, she plays the character of a drug dealership queen who uses the Khoza transport company to cover up her dirty deals. As ruthless as Harriet is, she killed her husband Hector after he betrayed her and offered her divorce papers. Currently, Harriet has a new enemy Londiwe Jama, and she plans a bloody heist to destroy her.
In contrast, MaSonto is a gangster goddess who kills anyone who plans on harming her family. Like Harriet, she uses her mechanic garage to cover up her car hijacking businesses. MaSonto has a car hijacking business, and she has Mazet and Stompie, who runs her day do day car stealing business. She is paid R80 000 per month for her character on Gomora.
