Meanwhile about three weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that the hit telenovela cast of The River 1 Magic share real bonds with each other and are always oozing with positivity and being extra fun on set. They get along like family even when the camera stops rolling.
While one of the hit telenovela stars, Linda Mtoba, was on maternity leave awaiting the birth of her baby, the cast threw her a surprise mini baby shower. Mtoba stopped by the set that Wednesday as she wanted to surprise her co-stars but was surprised instead.
The cast, which included Sindi Dlathu, Lawrence Maleka, Tinah Mnumzana, Lunga Mofokeng, Hlomla Dandala and Zenokuhle Maseko, treated Mtoba with an original baby shower song and gifts. The warm gesture left Mtoba in tears.
