WHAT ‘THE BRAVE ONES’ IS ABOUT
Bonko is starring in the Netflix series The Brave Ones in the role of Nkosi.
According to filmcombatsyndicate, the series centres around Ntsiki Gasa (played by Sthandile Nkosi), who is a mystical being reincarnated as a human who sets out to avenge her sister’s death.
However, Ntsiki faces a powerful and determined enemy in Ayanda Mbatha (played by Nomalanga Nkosi), the ruthless wife of an equally heartless land-grabbing property developer, Luthando Mbatha (played by Tony Kgoroge), who has her own compelling reasons for exploiting the powers of The Brave Ones.
To defeat her formidable enemies and save her family from destruction, Ntsiki must learn to use and harness her superpowers.
AKIN OMOTOSO ON AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY
Speaking to the Sunday Times, Omotoso said he has always been fascinated by African mythology since he was a child growing up in Nigeria. He said he was about 12 years old when he first had the idea he wanted to tell a story “set in the world of African gods and divine beings”.
