Zim actress honoured in UK

HARARE - United Kingdom-based Cameroon Film and Movie Academy has honoured Zimbabwean actress Samantha Ncube Mahlangu for her contribution to the African film industry.

Mahlangu, who has featured in numerous Nigerian movies, was among several African actors who received recognition from the Cameroon Film and Movie Academy which was primarily established as a platform for actors of Cameroonian descent.

London-based Mahlangu has described the honour as a “pleasant surprise.”

“It is a motivating gesture. It is a reward for the ups and downs I have gone through as an actress. I look up and praise my Lord for giving me strength to work my way up the ladder and for making the Cameroon Film and Movie Academy take notice of me,” Mahlangu told the Daily News.

The Bulawayo-born actress revealed that she is currently featuring in a Nollywood UK movie set to be released in October.

“I have just finished filming with Uwadi Production a movie in which I am acting alongside South African actor Kagiso Modupe who was popular for his role as Mangaliso Nyathi in the famous South African soapie Scandal,” she said.

Mahlangu is also part of a cast being put together by UK-based Zimbabwean film director/producer Daniel Ndlara Robson.

“It will feature one of the most successful Zimbabwean actresses Samantha Mahlangu who has worked in the United Kingdom (UK) mainstream film industry and is currently working with London Nollywood,” Robson told the Daily News recently.
