In a rare occurrence on TV, actor Lenana Kariba, who broke into the national limelight through his role as Lionel in Auntie Boss the sitcom, will replace Kone Nouhoum in TV series Selina.
Selina is a blockbuster story running on Maisha Magic East (carried on DStv and GOtv).
In September 2018, Kone — one of the lead actors in Selina — was involved in an accident that left him paralysed. He hasn’t fully recovered and the makers of the programme have headhunted Kariba for the role.
It would appear that that role belongs to a handsome man. Because, heck, one will note that it is almost a like-for-like replacement.
Selina makers say in an advertisement that the replacement is due to unavoidable circumstances.
We wish Kone a quick recovery.
