When Gomora made its debut in early 2020 none of us would have expected the success it has gone on to achieve. It has even unseated multi-award-winning Telenovela The Queen. Their team of writers claims Tshedza Pictures’ Phathu Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon who write for The River 1 Magic.
Not only do fans love its gravel and rawness but the fact that it has birthed a new school of actors. These include the likes of Ntobeko Sishi, Sicelo Buthelezi, Ama Qamata, Siphesihle Ndaba but to name a few. It has also reminded us just how talented Mam Connie Chiume, Xolisa Xaluva and Thembi Seete are. It’s the kind of show the nation has been asking for. We hope the forthcoming season is just as good as the first one.
Siphesihle Ndaba has already bagged her first award. She won a Feather Award for the ‘Hottest Woman Of The Year.’ At the 4th Royalty Soapie Awards, hosted by Lerato Kganyago and Mpho Popps. Sicelo Buthelezi was recognized for his exceptional talent and walked away with the Outstanding Newcomer Award.
“Last year during this time, I was sitting at a rehearsal room at The Market Theatre Laboratory not knowing what I’ll be doing after my graduation day… I set there alone watching others plan their stuff and I thought to myself “I may not know what I’ll do next year, but I know for a fact that God will guide me”, look at me now an Award with my name on it wow!.” Shared Sicelo on social media after receiving his award.
