Published 2 years ago by

Jaw-dropping drama. Never-ending plot-twists. Unlimited suspects. For fans of DStv’s biggest production to date, Legacy, this has become a rollercoaster of experiences. The local telenovela premiered on M-Net (Channel 101) just three months ago, but the incredible storytelling and talented cast have quickly made this must-watch television. Legacy offers fans romance, glamour, wealth, drama and deceit all the way until their 50th episode and directors Phathutshedzo Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon show no signs of stopping.

Apart from boasting a sterling and diverse cast, including Kgomotso Christopher, Jay Anstey, Trix Vivier and Mzansi’s favourite TV presenter Caddy Tsotetsi, Legacy is also jam packed with real relatable drama for every South African.

To celebrate the airing of episode 50, we have compiled a list of the 10 most memorable moments thus far:

Dineo Price has another son

Dineo is prepared to be imprisoned for arranging a hitman to kill her husband rather than telling her family- and the world- that the person she had met up with the night before Sebastian’s death was her son, Sefako. After being caught on video handing a bag over to a man at the petrol station, Dineo is wrongfully accused of hiring a hitman to kill Sebastian. In a shocking twist, we discover that it was in fact her son she had at 16 years old, named Sefako, who was in trouble and needed help. Sefako, having already been in trouble with the law, is protected by Dineo as she refuses to tell anyone that it was him who she handed the bag to the night before in a bid to not abandon him once again.
