Letoya to launch new CD on set
ISIDINGO actress Letoya Mongezi launched her music career on set as part of storyline in which she acts as Ayanda Diale.
Mongezi told a source that though the on-set launch was part of the storyline, in reality it actually marked a pre-launch of her music career. She has been acting as Ayanda Diale for the past nine months, and yesterday (29nov11) the character assumed new life as a singer.
"After getting this role in Isidingo the writer wrote in a scene about my music career because they realized that I am a singer in real life," she said.
"Though I have not released an album in many years after performing with Skool Girls, the group that was formed by my sisters and I, I have been busy with my music career, restricting only to performing at corporate gigs.
"Now that I am ready to release an album the song that the fans of Isidingo will hear (in February 2012) will form part of my album," she said.
Wearing a yellow dress that covered her toes but had a V-shape that revealed some flesh, it was clear that she was excited about launching her music career on set, giving viewers an opportunity to hear her sing material from her new album.
