Somizi cries to his dead mother.

 

The late veteran actress Mary Twala who gave up the ghost last month made her posthumous appearance on Beyonce‘s Black Is King last night on M-Net.

The film follows a young African king who is cast out from his family into an unforgiving world. He subsequently undergoes a journey to reclaim his throne, utilizing the guidance of his ancestors and childhood love. The story is told through the voices of present-day black artists.

Mary who plays the role of a sangoma didn’t get an opportunity to ascertain her much-anticipated performance. She died last month following a brief illness. Her son, Somizi Mhlongo, revealed on Twitter that he couldn’t stop crying after seeing her mother’s part within the film.

Other local entertainers featured include Nandi Madida, Moonchild Sanelly, Busiswa Gqulu, and Warren Masemola.
