MISS Eswatini Nosipho Dlamini has clinched a deal with KFC along with her princesses and Mr Eswatini princes.
A week after South African based agency Becky Casting Agency launched an office in the country, five swazis have been chosen to be in the KFC advert.
The five lucky models include Miss Eswatini first princess Nondumiso Dlamini, second princess Phiwinhlanhla Mbhamali, Mr Eswatini first Prince Wandile Zishwili, and second prince Wandile Dlamini.
This was revealed by Eswatini National Council of Arts and Culture Social Media Manager Bertha Sithole.
She said the five had already shot the advert and that they were also casted as extras on Etv soapie Rhythm City.
“They shot the video in Soweto, South Africa on Wednesday. They were excited to be extras on Rhythm City. The five also took a picture with some of the Rhythm City’s cast,” said Sithole.
Speaking to the winners, Mr Eswatini second prince Wandile Dlamini said the experience was amazing. “We learned a lot especially about acting and the experience was nothing short of amazing, I was excited to be part of this and it taught me a lot of things that I did not know,” said Dlamini.
Miss Eswatini Nosipho Dlamini said it was a great opportunity.
“It is a rear opportunity which anyone could be grateful for. It was a great opportunity and I would like to thank the office and Becky Casting Agency for giving us this opportunity,” she said.
She also said it was great acting alongside professional actors that they only get to see in big screens.
“Acting amongst people you only see on TV is an amazing experience on its own and we were given that chance so we will be forever grateful,” said Dlamini.
Sithole said the five cast were chosen by the agency to be part of the shoot.
She also said the casting agency continues to look for more models and other people who would like to join the agency.
“Registration is still open, though ENCAC office is still working on how this office will be run in the country to ensure artists are able to leave their mark and represent Eswatini in South Africa,” said Sithole.
She also said they have already signed a few models and are currently looking to place them in TV adverts and as extras for now.
