Getting to know Skeem Saam's Innocent Sadiki

She might look like she has it all, a successful marriage, career and beauty but the actress has a dark secret she has been keeping to herself until now.

 The Skeem Saam actress opened up about what it was like growing up without her father who was in prison.

Speaking to Tshisa Live, she opened up what it was like growing up knowing that her father was in prison, "my sister and I didn't even think that this was a story worth telling until we told it and people spoke about how it has touched them. We grew up taunted by outside people who always wanted to tell us what horrible things our father had done. Because we never knew him, we didn't understand."

Innocent Sadiki steals the hearts of South African viewers

"We had heard bad things, but we wanted to find out for ourselves so we went to his house. We knocked and knocked, then eventually jumped the fence and peeked through the windows."

She then went on to say that their father wasn't very welcoming when they eventually saw him and that they only saw him again when he was on his death bed.
