Nomzamo Mbatha, who played Thandeka in Isibaya, will be sizzling up the screen in her latest role alongside actor/model Maps Maponyane.

Mbatha plays the title role of Moratiwa in the romantic comedy called Tell Me Sweet Something which tells the story of an aspiring writer who owns and runs a bookstore in the heart of Johannesburg.

The bookstore, like her love life, is not experiencing much success. This all changes when she meets and falls in love with the unlikeliest candidate in the world – Nat (Maponyane), a male model, who has never read a book in his life and is desperate to be loved for his mind not his body.

Against the odds, they become romantically involved but then Sashi, Nat’s now pregnant ex-girlfriend, shows up and sets off a chain of romantic complications into motion.

From the team that produced the box office hit MaterialTell Me Sweet Something is directed by Akin Omotoso and produced by Robbie Thorpe. Shot on location in The Maboneng Precinct it also stars   Kagiso Lediga (Blitz Patrollie), Thomas Gumede (Otelo Burning), Thembi Seete (Hijack Stories), Mandisa Bardill (Man On Ground) and Thishiwe Ziqubu (Man On Ground).
