South Africa’s favourite beauty queen/actress, Phuti Khomo, is returning to the screens as she joins the cast of Imbewu.
Phuti is going to be playing Josina – Ngcolosi’s fiancée from Mozambique.
Josina is a beautiful Mozambican woman who arrives at the Bhengu house expecting to move in and assume the role of lady of the house.
Ngcolosi (played by Tony Kgoroge) introduces her as his fiancée.
The two met six months earlier and they fell in love. Viewers will learn that he told her to come live with him because his marriage with MaZulu, play by Leleti Khumalo, was long over.
Josina is furious when she realises that Ngcolosi wasn’t entirely honest with her and that he’s using her to hurt MaZulu.
But she’s not like any of the young women that he cheated on MaZulu with in the past. He really cares about her, which is what rattles MaZulu and makes her believe that her marriage with Ngcolosi is truly over.
Josina leaves after making it clear to MaZulu that she’s not a homewrecker and to show Ngcolosi that she’s not a pawn. Though he has strong feelings for her, he will not go after her, because she is not MaZulu.
She makes her Imbewu debut on Friday 23 December at 9pm.
Phuti, who is also a businesswoman, has been on a number of big South African productions including Muvhango.
