The River’s Sindi Dlathu Promoted As Show’s Co-Executive Producer
The River’s matriarch Lindiwe Dikana, born Sindi Dlathu has been promoted as the series co-executive producer.
Dlathu who is the biggest reason for The River’s success will now benefit as the show’s co-producer.
The River wouldn’t be where it is today without Dlathu’s brilliant portrayal of the villainous Lindiwe Dikana. Because a great TV story means nothing if there aren’t actors who bring it to life.
Lindiwe has kept viewers coming back for more as an enigmatic mining magnate who owns Khanyisa Diamond Mine.
She has had to sacrifice a great deal to have accomplished her level of success. She will not let anyone hurt her family or take them for a ride.
She is a devoted and loving wife to her husband; Zweli Dikana and buries secrets with the same single-mindedness she buries bodies.
The addictive mining drama keeps scooping awards including the Best Wardrobe and Best Make-up and Hairstyling prizes for a TV soap.
Lindiwe is a smart, fierce mining magnate who is always dressed to kill thanks to The River’s costume designer, Kgomotso Dipholo.
Fans of the show congratulated the actress on social media and thanked her for the marvelous job she’s doing on the show; behind-the-scenes and on-screen.
Here are some reactions from Twitter:
“To think that I thought nothing of Sindi and her acting while she was in Muvhango. It just shows how a bad production and poor storyline can end an actor’s career. Well done Sindi! You’re phenomenal indeed.”
“It’s good to see women especially black ones getting promoted nowadays …..it seems that the patriarchy has ended.”
Dlathu has been an inspiration to many South African women and women in the entertainment industry since exiting Muvhango in 2018 where she played the role of Thandaza Mukwevho for more than a decade.
