KB on Lebo Mathosa backlash: I wanted to tell her story not be her

Actress Keabetswe “KB” Motsilanyane is unfazed by all the hate around the decision to cast her as Lebo Mathosa in an upcoming biopic, telling TshisaLIVE that she is more focused on “telling” Lebo Mathosa's story than trying to “be” her.

In commemoration of the 13th anniversary of Lebo's death, Dream: The Lebo Mathosa Story was launched on Wednesday night at Kramerville in Sandton.

Earlier this year South Africans went into a frenzy when auditions for the biopic were announced. It led to fans disagreeing as to who'd pull off the best version of Lebo with all the talent in Mzansi.
