Lusanda’s role on Scandal recently came to an end in July and speaking to Drum magazine, she said she stayed longer on the show because of her captivating performances.
“I do not think Boniswa was supposed to stay on the show for so long. Also, when I got the gig, she was a supporting role. Through my performance I was able to be given more storylines and there were always curveballs.
“Playing the same character for five years is not easy but because of how her story has changed over the years, it has been a challenge and a great adventure. When I first got the role, Boniswa was supposed to be this sweet, warm, and loving woman. Then about two years in, she was turned into a villain, and I went into a dark place effortlessly in order to bring her to life.”
She said, “Where do I even start?! What to say?!This is a curtain call I guess. Take a bow ma’am! To have taken the responsibility of teaching us to love, hate, respect, vouch and even root for Boniswa must’ve been extremely challenging… yet you did it flawlessly.
“How you go so hard in everything you do is beyond admirable. You’re so dedicated and focused! I learned so much from you. Enkosi. For being my all on and off set. I’m so glad you were honored by the very same people you did it all for. You deserve the love and appreciation. Good luck. I love you deep, always
This is why Bonang Matheba is trending again
Bonang Matheba is trending once again for the wrong reason as she gets dragged into a discussion on Rea Gopane’s podcast. The YouTuber took aim at not only Mr. JazziQ but also Bonang. The podcaster who popularised the sentence, “Scoop told us,” has birthed yet another one which says, “Ntsiki told us,” when he spoke about Bonang’s House Of BNG drama.
Mocking the entrepreneur, Rea Gopane shared that Bonang is not smart as she makes people think she is. She has all that energy for me…can you imagine,” Rea said referencing the legal battle he got embroiled in after he made his defamatory statement.
“Scoop told us that AKA is on coke, and Bonang is the one that got him into cocaine. Scoop told us that, bro, after the interview we had him right here at this place,” Rea said at the time.
“She has all that energy for me but her but her paperwork and business is not even right, but you wanna flex to your fans,” he said. “Bonang is not as smart as she pretends to be. All she is good at is the fan base she has, that attacks people,” he alleged.
Rea even dragged Ntsiki Mazwai into this, one of the few women who questioned Bonang’s involvement with House Of BNG saying she does not own it, but she is just a marketing gimmick. Rea said Ntsiki is a smart woman because she has been saying this and she has never been shy to point this out.
The podcaster even said Bonang makes her lawyers do stupid stuff like making sending police officers to his place. “Do the real work of securing the bag,” he said. You running away from the big boys, she fooled everybody, she was going to vineyard and taking pictures saying “girls with vineyards”, Bonang does not own a f*** vineyard,” he mocked.
