Recently; a month ago to be more precise, reports went round that the daughter of media personality Somizi Mhlongo, Bahumi Madisakwane was billed to play the character of a young Lebo Mathosa in an upcoming biopic on the deceased star.
Those were just rumours and now everything had been confirmed.
After an official announcement of the development, by BET Africa, happy Bahumi took it to her Instagram page to share her excitement about landing the prestigious role.
“Words cannot describe…but in their best effort, 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[sic],” she wrote.
“To each person who has played a role in helping me, guiding me, and pushing me throughout this process, you truly are a blessing.
“From my friends and my family, to the amazing crew (the greatest appreciation to the choreographers @erasmusmegan and Sis Sbongile for being extreme professionals and encouraging Aunts to me all at the same time), I would not have enjoyed this process with all the challenges it came with if God didn’t choose all of you to walk this with me.
“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,” she added.

When news first came to the fore that Bahumi had landed the role, some social media users accused the star of riding on and getting help from her prominent dad, Somizi.
Although she never personally responded to the backlash, Somizi posted a wonderful message to her on his Instagram page telling her not to be distracted by naysayers. He encouraged her to not mind about what ‘the haters are saying’.
