Zenokuhle Maseko assumed the role of Mbali Dikana in her breakout role on The River, however, following her departure, she joined the cast of SABC 3’s The Estate.
Zenokuhle Maseko got her start in the mainstream television industry through her role as Mbali Dikana, the youngest and most spoilt of the Dikana children on 1Magic’s The River. While she was a part of the original cast, it was arguably in the second season that fans began to build a relationship with the character.
The connection between Mbali and viewers was established when the writers of the telenovela started showcasing the various layers of her personality. This was first achieved through her abduction story, which highlighted her blind and unwavering faith in her mother. However, as fans were just getting to know Mbali, she was killed off in the dramatic season two finale in February 2020.
Following her departure, it was clarified that her exit was amicable. Moreover, after months of no word from the star, she eventually revealed that she had been cast in SABC 3’s new telenovela, The Estate, in which she stars as Sindi Phakathwayo.
