We love our local celebrities but we also like focusing our attention towards our fellow African stars. This time around ZAlebs chats to Tanzanian actress, Vanessa Mdee who also acts on MTV's Shuga.
As much as people would like to complain about how negative things in South Africa might be, nobody can deny that we live in a beautiful country. So when Vanessa Mdee, from Tanzania, joked that she wanted to move to Mzansi, we were ready to show her our bookmarked favs from local property websites.
The singer and presenter is currently in Johannesburg and ZAlebs caught up with her at Monday’s MTV Shuga press conference. Production for season 5 of the educational drama is currently underway in Johannesburg and Vanessa will be joining the cast for the first time.
She started off by talking about how she is ready to move to South Africa:
Vanessa has presenting experience, having started out as a VJ, and she’s proven herself to be a great singer too. Howewever, she’s never acted on television before. She talked about how nervous she was to work with such a talented cast:
Shuga aims to educate its viewers and inspires them to learn more about social issues in their communities. Vanessa spoke about the issues she’s looking forward to tackling this year:
