CREDIT IS DUE
Hi tvplus. I want to know why Kopano is not credited when the final credits are broadcast at the end of a 7de Laan episode? – ELSIE, VIA EMAIL
According to 7de Laan (2000- current) publicist Rosa-Mari Erasmus, Oppiekoffie waiter Kopano, who’s played by Thabo Mhlanga, isn’t credited because of the type of contract he signed at the soapie. “He was hired as a featured extra and only if he is offered a permanent contract will his name appear on the credits,” Rosa-Mari explains. NB! See more on p22.
Kopano is often seen in the background at Oppiekoffie.
