Nandipha Sithole – Isidingo

Manaka Ranaka never played the character for long because she was pregnant and you will be forgiven to have not even known that she played the character. Nonetheless, Hlubi Mboya made it her own.


Rantumeng – Muvhango

Thandaza’s husband was played by Themba Nofemele for a long time before Brian Temba replaced him.


Masechaba – Stokvel

Before Dieketseng Mnisi made us laugh until we wet our pants there was Limakatso Manotwane as the pastor’s wife in the hit comedy series.


Papa Action – Yizo Yizo

Bonginkosi ‘Zola 7’ Dlamini might have a pretty damn good job at playing the character. But it was Ronnie Nyakale who built the character off the ground.
