They've both had successful careers in the South African entertainment business. Mary twala and Relegile popped in last week Friday on V-Entertainment to touch base with us not only on what projects they are currently up to right now, but also to dive a little bit deeper into real aspects of their lives and minds. And, as you can imagine, a lot was learned! 

Veteran South African actress, Mary Twala, sat across her son, Somizi, in the purple studio. That alone was iconic enough for all of us to glean into the sort of talent, work ethic and pure exceptionalism that runs in the family. They've both seen the pinnacles of the local entertainment industry, and have had their works reach people from all over the world. But while Somizi's career continues to thrive, Mary Twala is basking at her own legacy.

She's been in the business for almost 60 years, never dropping a ball. How has she been able to sustain that much longevity in an industry that creates meteoric superstars and then turn them into none entitires in quick succession?


Amongts other things, says the critically lauded actress, education and respect are key to success. Giving advise to young actress who have an intention of not only breaking into the industry, but also staying, Twala shared these nuggets of wisdom. 

Relebogile Mabotja is now part of the team behind one of the country's biggest breakfast shows. She's earned her striped, having paced through all the hoops in the game. She did her bit as a television presenter adn a radio presenter, and is now ready to be frank about what aspirant youth should never do if they want to get far in their professions.
