Candy made her first breakthrough onto the small screen when she hosted her very first talk show called Artist Rundown. She also played the character of ‘Mhani Dayina’ on the very first XiTsonga telenovela called ‘Giyani’ on SABC 2. After having taken a break from the small screens, Candy will soon be making an appearance on Skeem Saam. Playing the character of ‘Bafedile’. “We share the same age, that’s one of the many traits that Bafedile and I have in common” she says. “And because we have so much in common it was easy for me to relate to her and embody her character”.
When asked about how she felt about joining Skeem Saam she said, “I don’t even know where to begin in expressing my gratitude for this opportunity that I have been given. Skeem Saam is one of the biggest shows in the country and for me to be a part of it is truly amazing!”
Is she here to turn someone’s life upside-down? Look out for her debut on the 19th August 2020
