Nomzamo and Felicia Bond in Atlanta

Nomzamo Mbatha might be a million miles from home but thankfully shes got a familiar face to help her stay in touch with her roots.

Nomzamo and Felicia Mabuza Suttle have both achieved plenty in their respective careers and it came as no surprise that these two powerful and talented women had nothing but love for one another. We caught wind of this this week when the pair of them took a moment to trade shout outs towards one another before enjoying a cosy dinner in Atlanta.

Felicia joked that Nomzamo was a "Baby" when the first episode of her hit show aired on television, but the actress was quick-witted enough to reveal that she was a woke baby and managed to keep up with the most important women in South African media. Felicia wrote on Twitter,

"Spent quality & quantity time at dinner tonight with Nomzamo Mbatha Just realized that she was a baby when I started my show in 1992. #FeliciaShow ended 2005. Asked her how she was so familiar with my work as she was a baby. She said: "I was a woke baby & your legacy lives on."

Meanwhile Nomzamo Mbatha poured the compliments on her rolemodel when she wrote, "All the love and all the spoils! Iโ€™m so blessed to have you on this side of the pond. Never thought Atlanta could feel so much like home, but you make it that and so much more! Your fire and legacy burns ever so bright and lights us up! Love you DEEP!"

Nomzamo Mbatha has been in the States for much of 2019 and she is currently shooting for her first international role in the highly anticipated Coming To America sequel.

The announcement of her latest feature grabbed headlines across the continent and the star absolutely beamed with excitement once the cat was out of the bag. She wrote on Instagram:

"Iโ€™m just honored to be a part of this INCREDIBLE AND HUGE classic of a film. Itโ€™s going to be a fantastic couple of months in Atlanta telling this story and being surrounded by the most INCREDIBLE collective of actors and living legends... UNREAL. Just... WOW ! GOD WILL HUMBLE YOU. BELIEVE HIM."

Do you think that Nomzamo will move back to Mzansi or is she gone for good?
