South African actress and singer, Rami Chuene, shared a sweet birthday shout-out to her mom, on Instagram earlier today.
The actress, best known for her roles on Scandal! and Muvhango, wrote: "It’s this girlfriend’s birthday today. Mother. Mama. Mawe. Bomma. Mma-Montedi. MaChuene. ❤️"
Nothing's bigger that birthdays for Rami. Birthday messages streamed in on social media for The Queen actress six months ago. So we know this shout out for her mum, is something truly special.
Rami is certainly one of the most loved women in Mzansi, so it was no surprise when birthday wishes poured in from everyone including her industry colleagues such as Terry Pheto, Renate Stuurman, Shona Ferguson as well as politician Mbuyiseni Ndlozi and chef Lesogo Semenya. Briefly.co.za reported on her special day.
Chuene currently plays the role of Gracious Mabuza in Mzansi Magic's soapie, The Queen.
Five months ago, Briefly.co.za reported that the actress came under fire for her character’s use of bible scriptures on ‘The Queen’ but she spoke out against the pastor by telling him to relax.
In a Facebook rant, the Archbishop Elect of the International Anglican Orthodox Episcopal Communion, Abraham Sibiya came out to say that he did not agree with the way Rami’s character, Gracious quoted the bible.
He hinted in his post that his views were not a personal attack on the actress as he believes that she has done an amazing job at portraying Gracious Mabuza.
Rami discussed the issue with the panel of presenters on ‘Trending SA’ saying that she was surprised at the backlash. She said she felt that the pastor was overreacting and that the choice to use bible verses were purely creative license on the writer’s part.
