Sowetan reveals that 26-year-old actress Londeka Sishi, who secured the role of Nkanyezi on Showmax’s Adulting, and Gomora actor Ntobeko Sishi have no relation.

Londeka reveals that she landed the Adulting role after she and a colleague saw an open call posted on Instagram by Tshedza Pictures for a new show. 

“My colleague asked me to try my luck and because I’ve always had a passion and love for acting, I knew I had to go for it.”  

She recorded a self-tape and submitted it, got a call back shortly after that.

The actress adds that she scored the role after a bit of back and forth after driving up to Joburg,

She then relocated to Johannesburg to be near the set and has described the past year as “an instant overwhelming change” that seemed surreal.  

“After the first episode aired, my social media following increased drastically. I started being recognised by the people on the streets who wanted to take pictures with me… so many people started showing me some love which was overwhelming but incredibly beautiful to experience,” she said.

The rising star Londeka Sishi played the character of Bonga Tembe’s (Thembinkosi Mthembu) love interest Nkanyezi in Showmax’s drama series Adulting season one.

“I was very fortunate to be a part of a production that was very professional. The precaution was taken when it came to shooting the nude scenes, we had close sets and I felt very comfortable acting out the explicit scenes,” Sishi explains.  

“I chose not to tell my family about the sex scenes because I didn’t know how to say it… I just told myself that they’ll see when they watch the show. My mom and I have never spoken about the nude scenes I think because of how conservative she is but she’s been very supportive.

“My siblings on the other hand were questioning me about what I was doing on television but they are supportive of my career and what I intend to do, naked or not because at the end of the day, it’s all in the name of storytelling.”
