Although BET’s Dream: The Lebo Mathosa
Story is only on episode two, it has already had mixed reviews from viewers since
Some of the criticism has been with regards
to; the authenticity of the production, the cast and how the show apparently leaves
out a huge part of the songstress’s career, Boom Shaka.
Member of the group, Junior, recently
echoed similar sentiments.
“I don’t watch the show but from what I
have heard the Lebo Mathosa they are portraying is not the one who was my
sister” he said.
He added “I didn’t go to the launch because
I didn’t get the invite. Even if I had received the invite. I wouldn’t have
gone. I heard someone said they don’t want me there.”
The show has gone through a number of hurdles
to date, from changing Kelly Khumalo who was initially cast to play Lebo and
replacing her with KB Motsilanyane to withstanding social media backlash.
KB responded to the allegations of her
portrayal of Lebo saying her intentions were not to be her but simply
tell her story.
