SABC 2’s drama soapie Muvhango has a new addition in the family. She is vibrant, a go-getter, talented and wears many hats. Lerato Kganyago joins the award winning soapie to play the role of Mmasebotsana (“she who best epitomizes beauty”), and debuts the first week of June 2015.
ABOUT THE ROLE:
Mmasebotsana is a very beautiful girl with an almost pompous presence (in the eyes of the beholder) while deep down her inner persona, lies a timid girl whose life revolves around making everyone around her happy.
She is just as gullible as how independent she is and is willing to do just about anything to get what she wants. She is an intelligent young woman who always strives to achieve the best in all she does. Generally, she is overly confident, well-spoken, and fierce.
“Muvhango has been leading the pack with juicy storylines, surprises and plot twist over the past few years. As we evolve the story allows for new characters like Mmasebotsana. After doing a round of auditions, we felt that Lerato perfectly fitted the bill to play the role of Mmasebotsana. She brings a wealth of experience even though her contract is limited. We trust our viewers will warm up to her charisma and great personality on screen” said Lebo Malete – SABC 2 Publicist.
Lerato officially began her journey to stardom in 2002 when she was crowned Miss Jam Alley and later Miss Soweto in 2005. Lerato is an all-round entertainer who wears many hats and has been featured on different programmes. She was recently also cast on a cameo role on SABC 2 sitcom Skwizas, and Good Morning Brazil, a Sports TV show on SABC 1 during 2014 World Cup.
