Local actress Thuli Phongolo has shared how glad she is that viewers finally got to meet her character, Lerato, on “The Wife”.

“The Wife” is a romantic dramedy about a journalist who meets a taxi driver, falls in love and they quickly get married. But she doesn’t realise that he is not just a driver – he co-owns a taxi empire with his brothers and they are secretly wealthy.

But she also soon realises that in order to be in the family, she has to turn a blind eye to many things the brothers need to do to stay ahead in the taxi industry.

Taking to her Instagram page last week, Thuli shared a behind-the-scenes photo during filming, and expressed how glad she was that viewers finally got to meet the character, captioning the post: “I’m glad you guys have finally met Lerato! What a job she is, oh but I love her!

“You just never see her coming because she hides her layers well but everything she does, she does with intent… things get quite interesting!

“Happy to be a part of the phenomenon that’s ’Hlomu: The Wife’, enjoying the cast so much!!! An original, a love story with a twist… ❤️ thank you for the opportunity @stainedglasstv1 @showmaxonline 🙏”

Recently, the upcoming DJ also had to clear the air regarding her relationship status again after rumours about her dating Mr JazziQ started swirling.
