New face of Muvhango
THE TV "gods" have revisited actress Gontse Ntshegang with "blessings" after her role as the RT's Bar manager Keketso Khoza on the e.tv soapie Scandal! was unceremoniously written out of the storyline last year.
Ntshegang recently joined Muvhango to play the role of Mapule Modise.
The 29-year-old debuts tonight, replacing Matshepo Maleme as the new marketing gem at Mukhwevo Holdings.
Maleme has left Muvhango for M-Net Mzansi Magic's iNkaba.
Ntshegang said she was settling in on the Muvhango set.
"I have been shooting for the past three months and have settled quite nicely to the role of Mapule," she said.
Mapule is the same age as Meiki. She comes from a humble family background. Her mother is a teacher and her father is a senior administrator in the Department of Trade and Industry where he deals with small business development.
Mapule has always been business-minded, and has her sights set on one day owning a business in the maritime or aviation industries, a company that will supply equipment in an area that is desperately lacking people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Muvhango publicist Kgalema Mametse said Ntshegang had brought a wealth of experience and a distinctive flavour to the character of Mapule.
Ntshegang holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in drama from the University of the Witwatersrand and has appeared in Yizo Yizo 2 and has done TV and radio voice overs for top brands.
After leaving Scandal! she played Mpumi in the play Loving Lulu at the Market Theatre. She also played Elizabeth in Rhythm City.
In between shooting her scenes for Rhythm City, Ntshegang shot a German movie called Ambassador 2 where she played deputy director of commerce and industry in Zambia.
