- Connie has won a ton of praise for the expert way she portrays the devious and complex character of Mam' Sonto on Gomora
Veteran actress Connie Chiume is extremely grateful that her eye operation has gone well. The star, who plays Mam' Sonto, on Mzansi Magic's Gomora had asked fans for prayers prior to the operation. Connie took to Twitter to give an update.
She wrote, "Operation was successful. Thank you to everyone who prayed and DM'd me."
Fans were relieved to hear the good news and even more glad that Connie wouldn't be MIA to play the villain that everyone loves to hate on Gomora, Sonto.
Lucida Maseko commented, "I can't stop thanking the Lord for what he has done for you."
Tshepo Hamilton said, "Glory be to God and the doctors who did a job well done."
@EmJayed tweeted, "Realeboga (We are grateful) if the operation was a success. Nne retloba eng without wena (What would we be without you)? Modimo o moholo (God is great)."
Earlier this week, Briefly.co.za reported that Connie had asked fans to keep her in their thoughts and prayers as she went for the operation. The star portrays one of Gomora's most popular characters, Mam' Sonto, and couldn't be happier about the support the show's receiving.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that tweeps are at it again with hashtags that are nothing but fake news. #BoityEngagedByMaps trended at number one recently, despite the fact that Boity and Maps aren't engaged.
The two aren't even dating and have said on numerous occasions that they are just friends. The hashtag prompted some fans to start comparing Boity with Maps's ex, Nomzamo Mbatha.
