Thuso Mbedu to Star Side-By-Side Viola Davis

Thuso Mbedu Scores Another Big Role Alongside Viola Davis

Published

on

If it seems like we are have a big crush on Thuso Mbedu, which we do, it wouldn’t be the only ground to shine the spotlight on the actress. As luck and sheer talent would have it, she’s just landed another big role alongside American actress and producer, Viola Davis.

Mbedu let the cat out of the bag in an Instagram Live Video session where she detailed the first time meeting the multi-award winning actress. Captioned as an hour-long catching up session, she revealed tidbits about life in Hollywood, kicking things off with an update on the Underground Railroad press run.

The conversation was very insightful, none more appetising than when the star shared details on how she got the chance to work with the Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom actress in the duo’s upcoming film The Woman King.

“I found out about the project in 2019, right.” she explained. “And I went to meet Viola Davis and her husband’s production company JuVee Productions. And they had just told me about this project,” said Thuso.

Viola and Julius Tennon of JuVee Productions gave a glowing endorsement of the Mzansi actress, saying they were “mesmerised by Thuso”. As it was reported on Deadline, they thought she was perfect for the project.

“The depth and complexity of emotional life, her authentic beauty, and regalness is potent. We were mesmerised by Thuso Mbedu. We wanted Woman King / Nawi to be the vehicle to introduce her on the big screen,” they said.

It seems that part of production for the movie will also be filmed in South Ah. Thuso shared that “it’s set in the 1800s in Africa and it’s based on real life events of women warriors”.

There is no doubt that the red carpet treatment awaits Thuso Mbedu when she returns home for all her exploits abroad.

black coffee dating rumours

The rumour mill has struck again, and the hot tea is centered around who Black Coffee is dating!

It’s been over a year now since Black Coffee and Mbali Enhle filed for divorce. The deejay has since moved on to find love, with every social media post being investigated for clues on who he’s mingling with while he’s on exotic destinations.

Multiple reports from those close to the Superman hitmaker have confirmed that he is involved the social media influencer, Sarah Langa. There are several accounts from people that spotted the two lovebirds in Cape Town, on Friday being booed up.

According to Coffee’s inner circle, the relationship has been kept under wraps due to both parties prolonged dissolution of marriages. Sarah, who was married to a businessman, also filed for divorce at the Joburg High Court.

The relationship of the two media personalities is said to have began at Black Coffee’s party earlier this year, where he brought the who’s who of Egoliwood to his Joburg home.

Interestingly enough, it was not too long ago that Coffee was rumoured to be in a relationship with another model, Alexandra Cane. The two shared cryptic pictures of their baecation (never together) and sweet messages on the socials to fuel the fire .

Asked to comment about the rumours that she’s dating Coffee, Sarah chose to remain mum. With the festive season around the corner, there will surely be enoughBlack proof to put to bed all of the uncertainty.

After all the drama had subsided regarding the Miss SA 2020 pageant, it is time to forge forward. The beauty competition enlisted four  first round judges including the outspoken radio personality and returning judge, Anele Mdoda and former Miss SA crown holders Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala (2010), Liesl Laurie (2015) and Adè van Heerden (2017).

Following the former Miss SA title holder, Zonzibini Tunzi’s exploits across the globe, which earned her the coveted crown of Miss Universe, this years entries hit record numbers of more than 2 500 entries received.

The list needs to be reduced to 35 hopefuls that will take part in the virtual interview rounds before a Top 16 is announced. With the honour of being part of the panel of judges that handpicked Rolene Strauss and Zonzibini, both of whom went on to claim success on global stages, Anele was not fazed by the pressure of unearthing another gem.

“It’s never about the judges; it is the belief the young women have in themselves. We just serve as a springboard; the crown finds the contestant whilst she is looking for it.”

Assisting Anele on the hot seat is former Miss SA Dr Adè van Heerden, who revealed the checklist that the contestants need to tick if they harbour any wishes of going far in the competition. “I am looking for a multifaceted woman. A woman who radiates a deep confidence within herself and in the potential of her nation…

…A woman who can embrace her unique beauty, couple it with the strength of her voice and move our nation forward. The potential winner must be authentic with the ability to learn.”

For the first time in the history of the Miss South Africa pageant, the top three finalists will represent the country at the world’s three most prestigious pageants.

Previously, the Miss South Africa Organisation has sent a representative to both Miss Universe and Miss World, but will also now be fielding an entrant to Miss Supranational.

Miss South Africa is presented by Weil Entertainment in association with M-Net, Mzansi Magic and Sun International.
