AC­TRESSES Them­bisa Mdoda, Di­neo Ranaka and Salam­ina Mos­ese are work­ing on a movie called Baby Mama and, by the look of things, it is go­ing to be an ex­cit­ing film. Them­bisa re­cently left Mzansi Magic’s Our Per­fect Wed­ding (OPW) show, while Di­neo is a Metro FM ra­dio per­son­al­ity, and Salam­ina is a for­mer 7de Laan ac­tress.


Baby Mama is a ro­man­tic com­edy which is about friend­ship, hard­ships and re­la­tion­ships.

The film, which tells the story of four women who are in var­i­ous stages of be­ing a “baby mama”, is set to hit cin­e­mas early next year.

The three star­lets will also star along­side Kay Smith who ap­peared on SABC2 soapie 7de Laan as Er­rol’s girl­friend.

Them­bisa, who broke many hearts when she abruptly re­signed from OPW, claims to be hav­ing the time of her life with the char­ac­ter that she is play­ing. The Eastern Cape-born mother of twins, who says act­ing is one of her pas­sions, is no stranger to the craft. She plied her act­ing trade on stage and on TV, in­clud­ing ap­pear­ing on SABC2’s Home Af­fairs and Mzansi Magic’s te­len­ova, The Road.


For Di­neo, who has never acted in a movie, this is a thrill. “This is my first time ever in a movie, you have no idea how ex­cited and grate­ful I am,” says the multi-tal­ented me­dia per­son­al­ity who is best known for pre­sent­ing Club 808 on and do­ing her re­al­ity TV show Di­neo’s Diary on Mzansi Magic. She says she is ner­vous about the shoot. Di­neo tells Move! that she would love to talk more about the movie but “would need the bless­ings of the pro­duc­tion man­ager” to do so. Though Di­neo is a nerve-wreck, her co-star Salam­ina has noth­ing but praises for her. “Di­neo is a real nat­u­ral on cam­era,” she re­as­sures.


The movie is some­thing Salam­ina needed af­ter spend­ing a long time off our TV screens. Since act­ing is not new to her, it’s no won­der that she is su­per-ex­cited about the movie. Salam­ina, who is mar­ried to Tshepo ‘Howza’ Mos­ese, has ap­peared in na­tional and in­ter­na­tional films and soapies.

The three ac­tresses will also be work­ing along­side Sthem­biso ‘SK’ Khoza, who is well-known for his role as Shaka Khoza on pop­u­lar Mzansi Magic te­len­ov­ela, The Queen.

On the new movie, he plays the role of a man try­ing to win over the girl he has im­preg­nated. He has been quoted as say­ing it was a chal­lenge for him to move from the play­boy and gang­ster roles he is used to play­ing on TV to be­ing a nice guy.
