Muvhango is a South African Venda-language soapie, which partly reflects village and township life. The soap was created by Duma Ndlovu, is set in Johannesburg and a Venda village, and attracts a large viewing in South Africa.
The move to bring on Chomee is astute and one suspects the producers will be looking to explore Chomee’s popularity and music success, to bring Muvhango a character most viewers will immediately relate to. Chomee plays Chichi, a character we hope will bring some new life, excitement and sexiness to Muvhango.
“… She can come across as innocent, but her valour will make her enemies know who they are dealing with.”
Chichi shares most of Chome’s real life attributes right down to the fact that she was born in Soweto. She (Chichi ) is a sexy, well know socialite , who attends the hottest events in town and owns Jazz Lounge.
“After vigorous and lengthy auditions we finally settled on Thuli Madihlaba. She has the ability to bring a rare, women’s intuition to a character. She can come across as innocent, but her valour will make her enemies know who they are dealing with.” said Kgalema, Muhvango’s Publicist.
Chomee is currently signed to kwaito star , Arthur Mafoke’s 999 Music Label and her role in Muvhango is both exciting and worrying. We are exciting about how Chomee’s character (Chichi) will develop as the soap moves forward.
However we wonder if Chomee will find any time to choreography those sexy dance moves she has become famous for (it’s not quite the singing you see)?
