Top Billing meets the cast of Baby Mamas
Top Billing spends a weekend with the cast of Baby Mamas
Local TV actress Salamina Mosese has added the title of producer to her already impressive resume with the release of her new feel good film, Baby Mamas, also starring our very own Jonathan Boynton-Lee!
Set in Joburg, Baby Mamas revolves around the daily lives, loves and drama of four career women navigating motherhood, the men in their lives and how to manage the good with the bad.
As funny as it is heartfelt, this film is perfect for a date-night, and is sure to leave you wanting more.
To celebrate the launch of the hotly-anticipated local film, and to give the producers and actors a well-deserved break, Harmony caught up with the cast over a weekend of pure bliss on a getaway to the winelands. As part of Top Billing’s support for proudly South African film and tourism, we booked into Le Franschhoek Hotel and Spa where we could hear all about the film from the people at its core.
The first rule of Baby Mamas was that it had to be entertaining. The filmmakers believe the best comedy and drama arise from real-life situations, and so they decided to keep it as real as possible. At the core of the story is a strong sense of sisterhood, and the message that a load that is shared is much lighter to bear.
But romance is never far off, and the complications of modern dating also weave into the story. A fair share of the struggle and comedy in the film arises from partners who are conflicted about fatherhood.
The story is spectacular, and audiences are loving it already, but it took a lot of hard work to get to this stage. Salamina co-produced the film with writer and director Stephina Zwane, and they spent two years battling to properly fund their movie, but it’s paid off handsomely!
The distributors have such confidence in this film that they have released it in nearly sixty cinemas across sub-Saharan Africa. The start of what we hope will be many hit movies from these fun, young, women film-makers.
