Skeem Saam stars Kea Leburu, who plays Bontle on the show, alongside Katlego Letsholonyane (Chef Kgosi) and Luyolo Zitha (Nomfundo) recently posted some behind-the-scenes footage to entertain their fans.

They were singing a song by the Mahotela Queens when Zitha surprised fans when he interjected with his rhymes.

Watch Luyolo Zitha in rapping mode:


It’s always fun for the fans to see their favourite television stars out of character and getting to know their real personalities.

Skeem Saam fans were surprised to find out that Zitha is actually also a rapper. He’s not the only member of the cast who’s multitalented though. Leburu is an MC and Letsholonyane is also a singer.

The trio has been keeping viewers glued to their screens on weekdays in the popular SABC1 drama series. 

On the show, they are involved in a tug of war with Café Rovuwa owner, Lehasa Maphosa (played by Cedric Fourie),  who does not want Sindi (real name Phophi Mudau) to give away some of her shares to the staff.

He wants to acquire full ownership of the restaurant and his workers are not giving up without a fight.


Amanda Manku, who plays Lizzy in Skeem Saam, opened up about the joys of being a mother on her Instagram account this week. She was trying to take a picture for her followers until her children interrupted her.

I was trying to be cool, my rascals didn’t let me. Be a mom, it’s fun, they said, Manku said jokingly.

Judging by the reactions, many of the show’s viewers were surprised to find out that she is a mother of two.

In 2017, many Skeem Saam viewers were excited after Manku announced her pregnancy on social media.  Many reports at the time suggested that she was dating Kaizier Chiefs midfielder Pule Ekstein and he was the baby’s father. Manku however did not confirm nor deny the claims.


One Skeem Saam star who fans might not be seeing a lot of soon, is Cedric Fourie. The recent UCT graduate who stars as Lehasa Maphosa, will be joining Durban Gen.

TV Plus announced the news on Twitter:

Cedric Fourie joins @DurbanGen_etv from Mon 12 July. Your eyes aren’t deceiving you: Cedric is playing Dr Mthembu, a persistent, charming and arrogant surgeon who never shies away from a challenge…and it’s going to include Zondo
