After playing the role of Queen Moroka on Generations, Sophie ventured into entrepreneurship and now owns an events company that does weddings and other events.
On being mentored by Mfundi Vundla, Sophie says he’s the best person to learn from as he has produced the most successful TV show in South Africa to date.
“I’ve always seen Mfundi as a father figure – and I believe in honesty. When I felt he was wrong I told him he was wrong. And I felt that it was time, not to necessarily make peace, but to say, ‘let’s get on with it’.
“I mean, why am I moving ten steps back when I should be moving ten steps forward? So I moved ten steps forward,” she says.
