Tsonga rapper Sho Madjozi (28) is set to make her first cameo as herself on SABC2 Venda soapie Muvhango.

The rapper, poet, and singer is ticking acting off her bucket list and cannot wait for her few lines on the show.

“I say a few lines on the show, but that is good enough for me. I am a writer and being in front of a camera having to deliver lines is nerve wrecking but it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I’m just too thrilled to appear on my favourite TV show.”

Sho Madjozi grew up watching Muvhango.

“It always reminds me of where I come from, my culture and brings me closer to home,” she says.

“So, for me; this is a big deal, an achievement to represent my people doing what I love.”

The Limpopo star will perform Shahumba from her latest album What A Life. “This album has opened so many doors for me, I got to record a song with one of my role models Dr. Thomas Chauke, and now I get to be in one of the biggest soapies in the country,” she says.

In the episode of Muvhango, Sho Majodzi is invited by Teboho played by Liteboho Molise to perform on her show to cause a stir in the village of Thate.“Sho Madjozi was a pleasure to work with,” says Liteboho.

“The energy that one sees on stage is the same energy she gave off on set and in real life; positive, professional, and happy,” Liteboho says.

In the future, we will be featuring different art forms in the show from musicians to dancers and visual artists to promote talent in the country. We want Muvhango to be known as a melting pot for SA talent.”
