Moshidi Brings The Rhythm Back To The City

A lot of our SA actors never get the praise they deserve for a job well done. I'm not much of a soap fan but recently I have found myself tuning in religiously to Rhythm City to watch Moshidi Motshegwa. I have always been a huge fan of Moshidi’s work. She is one of the few actors we have who are able to play diverse characters with an ease that deserves the highest of all accolades in performing arts.
Moshidi Motshegwa... dayum she's so phine too!!

When I first heard that she was going to be on Rhythm City I was a bit skeptical of how her character will make an impact on the show. Boy was I in for a huge surprise, the girl has rhythm.

She has taken the character she plays and made it so funny without being cheesy. Moshidi is one of those actors that understands what role playing is. 

She never wants to upstage her role. She lets the character blossom on its pace not hers. She was quoted on Tonight mag saying this about the character
"Naomi is risqué, in your face and certainly not afraid to push the envelope. I’m consumed by making this character believable, fierce and phenomenal".

All I can say is, gurl… you nailed it.

Moshidi is so mesmerizing and slap-your-knee-holler-out-loud funny in portraying this seemingly evil character. Importantly, not that I was surprised, my girl manages to hold her own acting opposite SA Screen greats like Lionel Newton and Jamie Burtlet. 

One could be tempted to say Naomi, this sociopathic slut, is the ultimate rival to David Genaro (played by Jamie Bartlet). I loved the scene this week where David says to his sidekick that Naomi is just like her. He said it with such admiration, respect and awe in his voice that I thought to myself; it’s on biatch!!!

Can’t wait to see whats in store for Naomi, as for Moshidi… kudos girl!!! Thanks for making my daily 18h30 viewing pleasurable.

PS: Less scenes between ”Naomi” (Moshidi Motshegwa) and "Sbu” (Lungi Radu) please. The pretty boy falls short on his delivery and makes the scenes weak. Keep pairing him with “Gail” (Pam Andrews) so I can skip those scenes :)
