The family of Shaleen Surtie Richards has this morning sadly confirmed the news of her passing.
The 66 year old actress born on 7 May 1955 was well-known and loved for her role as Nenna aka Ester Willemse on the long-running soapie eGoli.
It was however playing Fiela Komoetie in the 1988 film adaptation of the Dalene Mathee Afrikaans novel Fiela se Kind that the Legendary Actress first rose to fame.

 

A veteran of a long list of Films, TV Series and Stage Productions and receiving numerous awards along the the way, Shaleen Surtie Richards was most recently cast in the role of the amusingly annoying but sweet grandmother in the Quanita Adams film SWIRL about 'Coloured women and their hair'.
 
 
 
As can be seen in tributes on social media, Shaleen Surtie Richards has certainly been an inspiration to many of the generation of actors who followed in her footsteps.
 
 
Shaleen was clearly adored by many across different generations and the South African Entertainment Landscape will forever continue to be influenced by the sheer passion she has put into ensuring the credibility of each and every role she has ever played.
Our sincerest condolences to the family, friends, colleagues and the fans of this wonderful star.

When the news first broke that the long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives will be culled from SABC TV due to the implementation of the 80-90 percent local content quota for SABC TV channels, we were quite pleasantly surprised by some of the funny reactions from some Facebook users.

OK we came up with a fairly mild one for the title of this article but check out further below what some facebook users who are just a little bit wittier than us had to say. We won't be giving there names as some of them are our personal friends with Ridiculously High Social Media Privacy Settings... They've got issues yeah...  and we don't want to get into a fight with them over that.
No we aren't making this up either; These one-liners are really out there...
