Dream: The Lebo Mathosa Story has become a topic of controversy as the biopic based on the life of late icon Lebo Mathosa is either loved or despised by South Africans.
After a rather shaky start, it seemed like Mzansi was warming to the show until it was reported that the production team messed up.
As Briefly.co.za reported earlier, it has been alleged that the show didn't contact the Mathosa family or her former bandmates about making the series.
Regardless of all the negativity, fans are absolutely loving Bahumi Mhlongo and her portrayal of young Lebo.

Bahumi is doing such an impressive job that many feel she should be playing the role of older Lebo as well - she's just perfect to play all of Lebo.
As reported on by TimesLIVE, Bahumi brought the singer's trademark no-nonsense attitude and street-style to life in ways many did not think possible.
Bahumi has shown that it is time she gets her own spotlight and the world sees her for more than just being Somizi Mhlongo's daughter.
