Jessica Sithole has showcased the warm welcome she received on her first day on the set of The River, where she assumes the role of Flora’s niece, Nyakallo.
Jessica Sithole took to Twitter on Monday, 24 May 2021, to confirm her addition to the cast pf 1Magic’s The River. The model and trained theatre actor was introduced to The River as Nyakallo. Nyakallo is the niece of original character, Flora, played by veteran actor, Tinah Mnumzana.
Nyakallo has made an impact at the Dikana mansion already, after taking over from Flora while she focuses on her choral duties. Nyakallo’s special attention to Zweli Dikana, played by Hlomla Dandala, has already raised eyebrows. In the most recent episode, Emma, played by Lunathi Mampofu, warned Nyakallo about her behaviour. Moreover, the soapie has confirmed that this is just the beginning of the drama that is set to unfold.
Sithole, in documenting her first day on set, revealed the warm and surprising welcome she received. In the shared video, Sithole and her fellow cast members can be seen being called to attention to formally welcome her to The River family.
