Playing Munashe’s childhood friend ‘Netsai’ is the darling of Zimbabwe’s film industry, and winner of the National Arts Merit Award (NAMA) for best actress Tendaishe Chitima. Besides being a co-star to Hip-Hop legend, Tehn Diamond in the hit rom-com film THE COOK OFF, which has earned several nods of international film festival official selection, Tendai is best known for her role in the SABC1 drama series Mutual Friends.
After graduating from the University of Cape Town, South Africa in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Film, Media & Writing and Drama, she was placed on the Dean’s Merit List for Academic Achievement. During and after her studies she acted in student short films, most notably Jayson’s Hope, which was a Top 10 finalist for the Afrinolly Short Film Competition 2013 in Nigeria. Her love for the performing arts led her to join a creative team as conceptualiser, song writer, co-director and actress for two musical stage productions: “Love. Silence. Victory” (2012) and “Guess who’s Coming to Dinner” (2013), for the His People church at the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town.
Tendai has experience in editing, conceptualisation and on-set management. She also has practice as a copywriter with a press advertising company and has received a radio production skills training certificate. In 2016 she was the co-host of the ZBC reality competition series Zimbabwe’s Greatest Talent, credited by her stage name “Tensugars”.
In early 2016 she landed her first acting role in television as Blessing Moyo, a new character (and potential love interest for Jabu) introduced in the second season of the SABC1 drama series Mutual Friends. In September 2016 she began a recurring role on the SABC3 soapie Isidingo as Adelaide, an orphan from Zimbabwe who finds herself at the mercy of Nina (Khabonina Qubeka) in a human trafficking storylin
