Pheko and Meme back on Muvhango
The actors will be joining the soapy when series 14 begins production in two weeks time.
Word of mouth pictures and Sabc2 are delighted to announce the return of Meme played by (Tsholo Monedi) and Pheko Mokoena played by (Rapulana Seiphemo) to Muvhango.
Muvhango is a soapy based on the interaction between the more modern Soweto-based family and the established cultural family in Venda. This provides exceptional opportunity for dramatic conflict weighing and balancing the old against the new. Western versus traditional, individualism versus community, self-enrichment versus ubuntu.
In this season, Pheko will reprise his role to claim what rightfully belongs to him whilst Meme returns for a recurring arc as the villainous Meme.
Rapulana Seiphemo is a seasoned actor who started his career in Theatre and manually progressed to Television in the late 90’ to become one of the country’s top rated actors. Seiphemo recently starred in Skeem, How to steal two million and produced the locally acclaimed film White Wedding.
Stage actress Tsholo Monedi who got her introduction to Television viewers by playing Meme in Muvhango has also stole hearts with her recent work in The Lion King stage production where she played the role of Nala.
Muvhango Publicist, Kgalema Eugene Mametse said: “Both actors possesses all the intensity and charisma required for television soapies and we are thrilled to welcome them back to our screens”.
As Muvhango gears itself for series 14 viewers will no longer have the pleasure of seeing the bubbly receptionist, Pearl (Jo-anne Reyneke) as she is leaving the soapy to pursue other interest. While Thadaza’s nephew Spha (Phila Mazikbuko) will be available to the production on a call basis.
Speaking of Jo-anne’s departure Mametse said: “This remarkable young actress will be missed by the production for her tenacity and energy”.
“Muvhango series 14 will bring audiences scintillating storylines, compelling roles and our loyal viewers will continue to be fascinated by what we have in store for them” Mametse added.
