South African actress,Shalima Mkongi, best known for her role as Nthabiseng on Isithembiso, has started her first web series.

In Bed With, sees Mkongi speaking to her co-stars from Isithembiso, Mam’ Nandi Nyembe and Zimkhitha Nyoka about their morning routines and how the work they do influence other people.  

The first episode that launched this week which gathered more than 6 000 views, show the three ladies in bed, enjoying a cup of tea, talking about their morning routines.

Throughout the series, Mkongi  aimed at positively showing viewers how successful people structure their lives to ensure productivity and fulfilment.

She also shared her own morning routine which involved an early wake-up call of 5am, tidying up, meditation and a gym session before starting her day with any work or set calls.

The trio also shared opinions on mental health, an issue that is really close to Mkongi’s heart, since she openly disclosed late last year that she suffers from a mental illness.   

After the first episode aired, Mkongi tweeted, “I can’t believe you guys like the web series. My stomach is burning from the nerves I had. My anxiety made a young come back but wow thank you guys. The response is amazing. Y’all are amazing man”.

South African actress, presenter and voice artist is best known for her roles as Ashanti on SABC 2's Keeping Score, Portia on Mzansi Magic’s Nkululeko and currently Nthabiseng on Isithembiso.
