The Venda soap is the brainchild of the inimitable Duma Ndlovu.

TV producer "Baby" Joe Correia recently shared a throwback video of Muvhango in honour of 25 years of “Muvhango”.

The video contains clips that are from the beginning of the show being on air and the actors are looking very young.

Many familiar faces can be spotted such as Somizi Mhlongo, Lebo Mathosa, Shona Ferguson and Sonia Mbela and is a nice trip down memory lane especially for avid viewers.

The show has given some of Mzansi's biggest names their big break. Khanyi Mbau, once portrayed the popular character Doobsie on the soapie, this was among her first few roles that put her on the spotlight.

“Idols SA” judge Somizi Mhlongo was also on the long-running show as a straight doctor, Jackie.

In celebration of 25 years, the TshiVenda show was celebrated in grand style with a celebration fitting of the occasion, last week.
