“Generations, The Legacy, is about stimulating a conversation about the transfer of wealth, knowledge and culture. Successive generations in African society have produced men and women of great intelligence, vision with a drive for excellence. For a variety of reasons – some no doubt related to our painful past – our development as a people has been stymied. Generations, The Legacy in its own way will address this issue – not in a didactic manner, but in interesting narratives. Now is the time to establish family legacies that move our country forward,” says elated and relieved creator, Mfundi Vundla.
Generations–The Legacy picks up the drama’s rich narration 2 years in the future. Two iconic figures in Generations, Karabo Moroka (played by the revered Connie Ferguson) and Tau Mogale (played by the accomplished Rapulana Seiphemo), re-enter the cut-throat media business landscape. This power couple is out to honour the legacy of Paul Moroka, the business visionary who built the first African-owned media enterprise. Unknown to Karabo, her husband Tau runs a parallel mission of establishing a legacy of his own. Deviousness has no boundaries: Tau’s sister Tshidi (Letoya Makhene), a trophy wife of the gangster, Gaddaffi (Vuyo Dabula) – Tau’s arch enemy, colludes albeit nervously in her husband’s efforts to derail the Paul Moroka legacy. Generations, The Legacy is a witch’s brew of narratives of ambition. A drama set in a world where virtue and evil are in a stellar battle for supremacy.
The new and exciting cast includes the following interesting faces and roles: JT Medupi as Jonathan; Musa Ngema as Mazwi; Kopano Zimba as Mary; Manaka Ranaka as Lucy; Andisiwe Dweba as Getty; Lebogang Mthunzi as Angela; Moopi Mothibedi as Smanga; Thulisile Phongolo as Namhla; Ronnie Nyakale plays Cosmo; Asanda Foji plays Simphiwe, and Ivy Nkutha plays the role of Gog’Flo.
