Busisiwe Kondleka on Generations: The Legacy

On Generations: Legacy, she plays the role of a  teenage girl named Melo. She was introduced as Nonhle’s best friend. Busisiwe would appear here and there but nothing ever too serious. She would appear on the show about four times a month, and it was always next to Nonhle. The producers eventually saw her talent and gave her a more permanent role. People then learned the character’s name and stopped referring to her as “Nonhle’s friend”.

Melo is a teenage girl who deals with the fundamental problems every teenage girl has to deal with. The story took us from her being a basic “rich” girl in a private school to a more in-depth look at her life. Although Melo is in a private school, she does not come from a wealthy home. Instead, it’s the former; the aunt works extremely hard to put her through private school. Her parents, however, were never mentioned. Just the aunt who works in a mine to ensure she gets the best education to better their lives.

She is nothing like her character in real life.

Melo is the opposite of her best friend, Nonhle. She is not a rebel; her character is the friend that always tells others to “slow down” and is forever trying to find a way to stay out of trouble. Although Nonhle is always bringing the problem and gets dragged into it, she is still friends. Her character is very caring and kind. The only thing she seems to have in common with her character is style. Busisiwe is a very fashionable young queen.

What many did not know about her is that she is a trying dancer. She also admitted that she’s not the best in this field, but as long as she serves body and looks, all is forgiven!
