Tebogo Thobejane who plays Marang’s wedding planner has lambasted Muvhango viewers on social media for comparing her to Buhle Samuels who used to play Matshidiso.
While the actress has appreciated the warm welcome since her debut on Muvhango, she is apparently not happy about some of the comments on social media and has stated:
“Please don’t compare me to Buhle, I’m not here to replace her and I’ve worked very hard.”
Tebogo, who made her debut on the show last week, said while she appreciated the warm reception she received from viewers, she wanted to make it clear she was on her own journey.
“I’m carving my own path. I’m not here to emulate anyone. I appreciate the wonderful reception I’ve been getting for my debut role,” said Tebogo.
She said waiting for more than a decade for her big break was hard enough and she did not expect to be compared to someone else.
Tebogo urged people to stop comparing her to Buhle.
“Rather applaud the good work we are bringing to the entertainment industry,” she said.
The actress has also been compared to reality star and businesswoman; Faith Nketsi for her body and big booty.
She’s gotten more attention from fans in comparison to the other two new actresses; Bontle Mampa and Kamo Letsosa who’ve just joined the show as well.
