Three years ago, Moshidi was axed from 1Magic’s telenovela, The River, after she had a fallout with a co-star and one of the show’s executive producers. This is despite the fact that she had won the Favourite Actress award at the Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards for her role as Malefu. She walked away with a R50 000 cash prize.


At the time, the star said one of the reasons she was given for being booted from the show was that she was “too expensive and difficult to work with”. The seasoned actress was then excluded from season two of the show. Moshidi has bounced back and is now part of BET’s star-studded daily drama, Isono.
