Twitter Divided On Who Should Play Brenda Fassie On Upcoming Biopic. There is a new film in the works about the colorful life of the late legend Brenda Fassie. Already an open casting call has been set in search for that talented local to play Brenda. With a lot of talent in the country many are already campaigning for their favorites to get the part.
Leading the pack are two South African talented actresses, Brenda Ngxoli known for her role in television drama Home Afairs and Soso Runqu who is known for her part as Morongwa in Muvhango. Manaka Ranaka who plays Lucy Diale in Generations is also a close contender.
Brenda Ngxoli should play Brenda Fassie. Full Stop

Actually, there is a lady that plays Morongwa on Isidingo. I think she’d be perfect for this role. She has the voice, the look, the attitude and the talent of a Brenda Fassie.
Please consider her. https://t.co/5myYShkTVK

Brenda Ngxoli will slay that Brenda Fassie role/character. Enough with American actors playing our South African icons.
