EXCLUSIVE: Former SA’s Got Talent winner joins Scandal!

2015-09-03 17:00

Cape Town - Remember this bundle of inspiration? Well, the former SA’s Got Talent 2012 winner, Botlhale Boikanyo, is making her way back to the small screen. Only this time, she won’t be doing any poetry.

Botlhale, who inspired millions of South Africans with her amazing poems on the reality show, is set to join the Scandal! team at the end of September. The news was confirmed by’s publicist Michael Pocock.

The versatile 14-year-old artist will play the role of a warm and likeable teen named Omphile. While we can’t say how Omphile fits into the soapie, we can hint that she is connected to Mlungisi Ngema (Patrick Mofokeng).
Botlhale will make her first on-screen debut on Wednesday 30 September. You can read more about her big role in the upcoming 16 September issue of tvplus.

Catch Scandal! weekdays on at 19:30.
