Tilo ngwana Rashaka Mokgopo
Out with the old and in with the new! There is a new Busi on Muvhango and if you are a fan of Omuhle Gela, askies, because the petite actress won’t feature in the soapie anymore.
Bontle Sithole, a 19 year old marketing student has been cast as the new Busi- or rather the fifth Busi. She made her first appearance on our small screens on Friday 23 January. Her predecessor, Omuhle, took to instagram to deliver what could be interpreted as a sarcastic message to her successor.
She said “best wishes to the young lady who is about to take over and thanks to the channel for giving me the opportunity.”
Omuhle also used the platform to respond back to the people inquiring about her departure from Muvhango.
“For those who’ve been asking, I took time out to ‘find myself’ and hopefully get a character that allows me to grow as an artist and I’m happy I found one 2 weeks after leaving [Muvhango],” she explained.
However, Mr TV Police has not forgotten what Omuhle said last year when news of her departure from Muvhango first broke into the public realm. She was quoted as saying: “my agent and I couldn’t agree on a lot of things with the soapie so we decided it was best that I left the show and went on to focus on other things.”
Nevertheless, we would like to wish talented Omuhle the best of luck in her future endevours. And ooh, wish you luck to you too ‘young lady’ Bontle Sithole.
