Actress Sophie Lichaba has proved once again that she is a tough cookie.
After being away from our small screens for some time due to ill health, she has come back even stronger to reclaim her title of Mzansi's queen of prime time TV.
She has been trending for all the right reasons on social media. Sophie has been receiving all sorts of praises from her fans ever since episode 2 of Lockdown season 5 aired on Mzansi Magic this week.
Not even Twitter trolls can steal the former Generation's actress' thunder this time around.
She has proved to them just how tough she is. The star who plays the character of Palesa in Lockdown, has clapped back at haters who have judged her appearance instead of focusing on her shine.
She commented when one of her fans defended her against one tweep who came for her appearance:
"God help her and her stupidity. She doesn't know life."
She also told another troll who came for her to take a hike:
"I will do what suits me my dear. Focus on your life and go get tested for every disease . Who are you to decide what I should do, who are you?"
Sophie's fans also defended her.
"Mme Lichaba, You've done far much better since you came out and announce your sickness, it takes a strong woman to do that, now look at how you have gained strength and your true self back, allowing haters to get through your skin will do injustice to your purpose in life."
"I just had to check her profile and wow I’m just speechless. I just wonder do some people just take time to think before they could speak or in this case write/say something . This is so sad. Botho ba rona bo kae?"
