Lugelo told SunBuzz: “Scoring another role on such a major TV show is affirmation that whatever I am doing is good, it really feels great.

“Acting is something that’s very close to my heart and I love what I do. This role came at the right time because I was looking for a new challenge as I really love to challenge myself as an actress.”

“Ntokozo is a graduate looking to live her dream job of helping people in need. She finds herself between a rock and a hard place when she finds out her parents aren’t her biological parents,” she said.

“She is a bit naive and is easily lured, but at the same time she is determined and hardworking, very respectful and well-mannered.

Lungelo said since her big break in the acting scene, her journey has been amazing.

“The journey is still exciting and humbling. I learn a lot every day,” she said.
