Generations: The Legacy has a new face in town, but this face in not so new to the entertainment industry. The SABC1’s sopie has added Tidimalo Sehlako in its 29th season and she’ll be playing Nthabiseng, the head of Jambo Baba.
In 2014 she became Miss SA finalist that made it to the top 5, and since then she’s made her presence known in the industry by becoming a newsreader on power FM, a BET A-List presenter and appearing in Mzansi Magic’s Isithembiso.
The actress expressed her gratitude on the Move! About having to be a part of the show and she said “I am surrounded by so many great thespians, I just want to soak in as much as I can and strengthen my skillset. Generations is a launch platform – the show’s actors go on to craft their careers so they’re not limited by anything. The audience is so diverse and that’s what I’m very thankful for.”
When she’s not on our television screens Tidimalo also models for one of SA’s biggest modelling agencies Boss Models. Sehlako has worked on campaigns with big names such as Nivea and Avon, Tidimalo is also a health enthusiast and encourages good mental health as a yoga instructor. “Yoga helps people deal with their anxiety. It also helps you keep fit, tone up and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The more you declutter your mind, the calmer your spirit is.” – she said.
During her free time, Tidimalo loves to hang out with her friends and is a foodie. But now that it’s Covid19, she spends a lot of her time watching TV, her favourite shows include Queen Sono, Blood & Water, Queen of The South, Dynasty and Money Heist. The actress is also into books, her most-loved books include Black Skin, White Masks by Frantz Fanon and Understanding Your Potential by Dr Miles Munroe.
