- Bahumi is loving the chance she got to tell the story of SA icon, Lebo Mathosa
- Although the decision to let her play as young Lebo in the film about her life has been criticised, Bahumi's making the most of it
- For Bahumi, it is a humbling experience and gift
Young actress, Bahumi Madisakwane, is humbled and honoured to be able to help tell the story of late South African singing legend, Lebo Mathosa.
Bahumi has been chosen to play a young Lebo in the upcoming biopic that will tell the icon's story, Dream: The Lebo Mathosa Story.
Though this move to select Bahumi was met with criticism, she's still living her best life and enjoying the opportunity given to her.
The actress shared clips from the first dance rehearsals and expressed just how special the experience was to her.
"Telling the story I had both dreamed and feared of telling my whole life, has been one of the most humbling experiences and gifts thus far. God Thank You. You are Faithful. May You forever be glorified.
"Here’s to a beautiful production, a beautiful story, and an extraordinary person I have been trusted to evoke - may her soul rest in everlasting peace."
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that several social media users hope that the rest of the country will give the young lady a chance to prove herself.
It has been said that she only got the role because she's the daughter of celeb, Somizi and news anchor, Palesa Madisakwane.
