Noge explained her character on the wife

The actress explains that she has a friendship with Kwenzo, who plays Qhawe, and that he has been very nice and helpful in supporting her with all things Naledi and Qhawe.

She was apprehensive about applying for the part because she adored Naledi’s gentle and loving personality.

Naledi freely displays her love and isn’t scared to open out her heart to others.

Noge adds that she felt compelled to take on the role because it already existed and people adored her.

She read the books as well and gleaned a lot from them: the essence of who she is, her demeanor, and the things she does.

Because that’s what Naledi does, I started wearing nude nail polish.

Naledi and her love interest on the Wife



“They going to ruin Naledi and Qhawe’s love story. I can just tell.”


“They ruined it already when they made him sleep with Hlomu.”


“Totally agree with that. The twist is just too much and having to align to this book will be difficult but all the books have been ruined anyway.”


“Lol so she was supposed to gain weight first?”

“If she did you would still say in the book she used to wear size five shoes, or she had a small nose.”

“You are always waiting to criticise something.”


“I am just going to be happy that Naledi is here, that was my favourite love story.”

“Hope her sisters, father and stepmother also come alive in the series.”

“I wonder if the chubbiness has been removed. Congratulations and welcome to Naledi”
