DiepCity took the country by storm when it first aired on Mzansi Magic, as a replacement to the long-running daily soapie Isibaya (all episodes can be binge-watched on Showmax). This brand-new telenovela explores the struggle of four young women trying to make their way in the world.
The multi-talented Lebohang Mpyana plays Khelina on the new telenovela. This is her first TV role. The question is, where has she been all this time?
The 32-year-old actress was born in Ga-Mokgokong, in Moletjie Village outside Polokwane in Limpopo.
Lebohang is well-known for her comedy videos on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok where she makes jokes in Pedi. She first started posting them last year.
Before her role in DiepCity, she was cast in a Moja Love show called Mathata Ke Eng. She does voice overs for radio and is a sought after MC, doing gigs all over the country.
She loves singing
Lebohang once auditioned for Idols and made it to the Idols: Wooden Mic segment. From a very young age, she always wanted to be a comedian and to make people laugh, taking centre stage wherever she is.
She got her role in DiepCity through Instagram
Black Brain Productions and Mandla N announced on social media that they were looking for talent for the new show, and various artists did monologues and submitted online. Lebohang was one of the few whose videos caught the producers’ eye.
