LINDA MTOBA AS NTANDOKAYISE MTHOMBENI

The former The River actress Linda Mtoba portrays the role of Ntandokayise Mthombeni on BET Africa’s Queendom.

Mtoba tells IOL “In South Africa, especially, women play a pivotal role in their communities and families. It’s not just about running the household, it’s about owning property, making financial decisions, and shaping the future for themselves and their loved ones.”

“The storytelling delves into the complexities of women’s lives, highlighting their power, their struggles, and their triumphs with nuance and depth.”

Mtoba adds that the show celebrates the strength and resilience of women. It also showcases their ability to overcome adversity and thrive in the face of challenges.

Mtoba’s character, Nthandokayise, is a maverick community leader in Tsakane, who discovers that she is the rightful heir to the throne of the Khahlamba Kingdom.

Sunday World reveals that Mtoba’s mother, Tholakele Mthombeni, played by Sindi Dlathu, has been keeping this secret from her for 30 years.

“Ntando is not just a character; she’s a symbol of the strength all African women possess. In her story, we witness the collision of two worlds, the power of destiny, and the rise of a queen. I can’t wait for viewers to embark on this journey with us.”
