Stars cheer each other on.

In a world full of negativity, it melts our hearts when our favourite stars bring out the pompoms and cheer each other on. Mondli Makhoba, Chris Q, and Lemogang Tsipa took to social media to honour some of their fellow cast members. Take a look at these beautiful messages:

Mondli Makhoba, starring in the show as Ngomane Kamqomboli, applauded Khabonina Qubeka for her stellar portrayal of the character Queen Ntombazi.

Taking to social media, Makhoba penned the following heartfelt message:

"Today, I want to say thank you to @Khabonina_q for how you approached Ntombazi. I am thankful that her spirit chose you. She comes alive in you. She is calm, sure and loving to her children no matter what. We believe her. You, Kha, have done a brilliant job with this character."

Lemogang has proved time and time again that he's a force to reckon with as an actor. The star also received high praise from fellow actor Chris Q (Makhedama) for his extraordinary performance as Shaka kaSenzangakhona. Hailing the actor on his social media account, this is what he had to say:

"The biggest shout-out this week belongs to none other than Lemogang Tsipa for his flawless, goosebump-inducing portrayal of the legendary Zulu king, Shaka kaSenzangakhona."

Chris_Q also showed Wiseman Mncube (King Zwide) some love through fun banter. Feast your eyes on this hilarious video and caption:

We predict a bright future for Ntando Zondi (young Shaka). Lemogang gave Mlilwana his flowers. Here’s what he had to say about the newcomer.

Bheka, the whole Shaka iLembe cast and crew deserve a shout-out!
