The River 1Magic starring Sindi Dlathu has just been promoted to take over as co-executive producer of the show.
Sindi Dlathu was thrust into superstardom several years ago when she appeared in Sarafina and since then, she has been killing it in the acting game.
The actress who portrays the character of Lindiwe Dikani on Mzansi Magic’s hit telenovela The River, has been promoted on the show. It is no secret that it is very rare to get a promotion as an actress in the film and television industry in Mzansi.
For the longest time behind the scenes, the industry was male-dominated, but recently we have been seeing more and more women taking up space and cementing their place behind the scenes.
This proves that there is growth and women are also being acknowledged for their hard work and creativity. Sindi has now secured a new role as series co-executive producer. The exciting news was revealed by entertainment commentator and blogger Phil Mphela on Twitter this afternoon.
The actress has become a force to be reckoned with in the industry and her lead character on the show continues to steal hearts. Her enthralling performances have been keeping avid viewers of the show glued to their small screens.
Sindi recently walked away with Best Actress at the South African Film & Television Award (Safta) 2020. Dr. John Kani congratulated her and said he is proud of how her career has evolved.
This means a lot to me @JohnKani2thank you for playing a part in honing my craft. The knowledge and the wisdom you imparted in your classes were of great help in my career. You left a footprint in many a performer’s life. Enkosi Tata
Sindi is now joining a batch of Mzansi’s talented women who have proven that nothing is impossible and they are killing it behind the scenes. Another actress who was recently offered a new role in Generations The Legacy is Chi Mhende. The actress is now a trainee director on the show.
The actress’s character was recently written off the storyline on the show, and there were reports which alleged that she was given the boot after fans complained that her character was irrelevant. But speaking to Move Magazine Generations The Legacy Publicist Garaatwe Mokheti refuted the claims.
“Her exit is very much amicable and peaceful, “She is a phenomenal actress and she will certainly soar in whatever she chooses to pursue.” Her last appearance on the show will be on 29 April,” she said.
