Multi-award-winning actress, Motshegwa’s return was announced by entertainment commentator Phil Mphela and snapped shooting on the set of an unmentioned Televenola, whilst Monyane announced her return to her social media pages and took a pic of herself in a make-up room.
Monyane tweeted: “First TV in a minute. I’m excited. See you back on your screens in a few months.”I’ll let you know the name of the production in time… Akere suspense nyana Dali?#2021.”
Monyane, who has been on Muvhango with Skeem Saam, took a break from TV after her marriage to Skhulu Skenjane fell apart.
Her ex-husband is currently on three shows, Generations The Legacy, Isono and Scandal.
The actress lost a baby and a house before she filed for divorce!
Fans of Motshegwa were devastated when she was let go on The River because of the off-screen drama between herself and Larona Moagi. Motshegwa went on to scoop a SAFTA for her role on The River even though her contract was cancelled.
Her departure was met with cries from fans who enjoyed her performances and are still requesting her return.
The actress left a gap on the show which resulted in the producers replacing her with another character, Rakgadi!
The actress was apparently also feuding with another producer and creator of the show, Gwydion Beynon, which resulted in her dismissal from the show.
The actress was apparently trying to coach newcomer Larona Moagi, who is inexperienced in the industry.
She was spot on about Larona, as fans of the show are still complaining about her stone cold acting three seasons later.
While the names of the actresses telenovela’s and their roles have not yet been published, it’s safe to assume that they’re working on the same show.
Moshidi played the role of Malefu Mokoena on The River and Monyane played the role of Dr Nchabeleng on Muvhango.

Here are some of the reactions from fans of Motshidi who were on Mphela’s tweet:
“Welcome back Moshidi. We missed you”
“Moshidi’s work is divine.”
“So happy she is coming back on our screens.”
“This lady is one of the best actresses in Mansi. I mean she’s really good, exceptionally and always delivering on a high bar which is something we should all appreciate but I think she’s too controlling. Imagine dictating how ur script should be.”
“Yess man, long time not seeing this lady.”
“’I really missed her.”
