South African TV audiences first encountered her through the telly when she first appeared on Generations; The Legacy in the not-so-distant past. Four years later, Thuso Mbedu has paced through hoops to become the first South African actress to score a leading role in an American series!

Mbedu has been picked to star as the lead character on Barry Jenkins’ adaptation of The Underground Railroad. The actress will be taking on the role of Cora – the main character in the critically lauded novel.

The 27 year old’s history of flirtations with Hollywood dates back to 2018 and 2019, when she received International Emmy Award nominations for her stellar portrayal of Winnie on Mzansi Magic drama series – Is’thunzi. Although she didn’t bring any of the prestigious gongs home, there’s no lack of evidence that her star has now sky rocketed to global horizons.

The Underground Railroad tells the story of a young Cora’s journey as she negotiates her way in the pre-war South, according to Variety. Following her escape from a Georgia plantation, she discovers the existence of a railroad with a secret network of tracks and tunnels.

“My thumb and neurons are failing me right”, jotted the actress on her Instagram. “So I’ll just do as most South Africans do when this happens: I GOT THE JOB!!!”

Everyone’s Talking about DJ Sbu’s Nipsey Hussle Speech

DJ Sbu at Nipsey Hussle's memorial

He’s definitely never been afraid to step outside of the convention to make a splashy point.

From plugging his energy drink onstage at the 2015 Metro FM Music awards (and being suspended shortly after), to faking a Forbes Africa cover (which reportedly resulted in legal action), it’s quite obvious that DJ Sbu has mastered the art of shocking. Unprovoked.

The multi hyphenate media personality and entrepreneur grabbed more headlines when on Tuesday, he shared a clip in which he addresses the crowd at Nipsey Hussle’s memorial gathering in Los Angeles, California.

RELATED: THE FORBES AFRICA DJ SBU COVER THAT WASN’T 

In it, Sbu introduces himself as the ‘ambassador for Hip Hop music’. And more… so much more.

“My name is DJ Sbu. I come all the way from Johannesburg in South Africa. I’m here as an ambassador for Hip Hop music and the culture in the entire African continent. I represent musicians from the whole continent”, says the Sbu in the clip, which does not feature the rest of the speech.
