Sunday World reports that actresses Sindi Dlathu and Linda Mtoba will play mother and daughter in BET_Africa’s Queendom.

Queendom tells the story of Nthandokayise Mthombeni portrayed by Mtoba, a maverick community leader in Tsakane. She discovers that she’s the rightful heir to the throne of Khahlamba Kingdom.


Her mother, Tholakele Mthombeni, played by Dlathu, has been keeping this secret from her for 30 years.

“Ntando is not just a character; she’s a symbol of the strength all African women possess. In her story, we witness the collision of two worlds, the power of destiny, and the rise of a queen. I can’t wait for viewers to embark on this journey with us.”
