This year Mothusi got a role on Ferguson Films' The Throne as Moreri and in a Twitter post said it's been "the highlight" of his year. Mothusi also shared that he can't wait to "submerge himself into this character next year" which we guess serves as confirmation that not only is the show coming back, he is too. We're super happy for him, and we're certain this is only the beginning of what will be a fruitful career.
