Nkosi’s Role as Londiwe in The Queen Remains one of her Most Prominent Projects
Sthandile was cast in her first main role on television as the fictitious Londiwe Jama in the final season of the Mzansi Magic soap opera The Queen, which premiered on July 25, 2022.
She brought a lot of action to the popular soap opera in addition to her innate charisma and commanding screen presence, which are two of her best talents. She essentially made advantage of her special talent to bring the audience into her performances and grab their attention. Despite the fact that she entered the telenovela in a dramatic sequence, Nkosi’s Londiwe Jama was a fantastic character.
Londiwe Jama and her late husband were initially introduced to the viewers of the popular show at Hector’s (Rapulana Seiphemo) burial. After her husband, Douglas Jama, passed away while having sex with her, Nkosi’s character gained popularity for killing her stepson, Ayihlome (played by Tiisetso Thoka from Skeem Saam).
