And, judging by the hype on social media, she was welcomed with open arms by viewers.
Dineo plays the character of Naledi Thebe on the soapie, who seems like she's about to change things up on the show.
Just minutes before the show Dineo revealed that she was excited and nervous at the same time.
But if the reaction on Twitter is anything to go by, you have nothing to worry about Dineo.
