he South African-born actress Cassidy Rose Tshiamo Ledwaba first came to international recognition in June 2022, thanks to her role on House of Zwide, the most watched television fashion serial opera in the world. She plays Nkosikhona Zwide, the eldest child of Gaisang Noge’s Mampho and Wanda Zuma’s Nkosikhona, on the show House of Zwide. As her father’s longtime partner, her Shoki stepmother cherishes her daughter for the joy and warmth she has brought into the family.
Her on-screen mother and stepmother are household names, but the identity of her biological mother is a closely guarded secret. Cassidy’s mom is a skilled makeup artist from South Africa, and she’ll be doing face beats at the House of Zwide. She’s part of the crew of the House of Zwide soap drama, but she usually stays out of the spotlight.
Her name is Itumeleng Ledwaba, and she is a professional makeup artist. She first became interested in cosmetics after seeing her mother and sisters spend excessive amounts of time primping in front of the mirror. She claims she would observe them closely as they did things like apply makeup (eyebrow pencil, foundation, lipstick). She adds that she herself would act similarly in a similar situation. She acquired an obsessive fixation on how her face looked and began frequenting YouTube to research cosmetic application techniques.
Itumeleng started stealing her mother’s and sister’s cosmetics. She’d retreat to her room to practice applying her cosmetics flawlessly. A turning point in Itumeleng’s life, she says, was when she saved up for her own cosmetics kit and started charging others to have their makeup done.
It was after realizing how much she liked applying makeup that she decided to make it her profession. Blended by Tumi is the name of her makeup studio, according to her Instagram bio. There, we also find out that she is the mother of our favorite child actress, little “Busi.”
