Skeem Saam actress Innocent Sadiki is set to star in a new reality TV show called Pastors' Wives on DStv's new lifestyle channel Honey.

Innocent Sadiki, who plays the role of Sthoko Seakamela on SABC 1's hit soapie, took to Instagram and shared how nervous yet excited she was to be apart of the new reality TV show.

She also revealed the ladies who'd be making up the cast members of the show that'll hit viewers' TV screens later this month.

“If they didn’t know, now they know. Meet the Pastors’ Wives. Coming to your screens this February. I must be honest I’m nervous about this one, but I know it’s God’s timing. Thank you all for the love, see you on the 19th.” 

While the reality TV show comes as a blessing to her, especially during tough times where jobs are scarce, last year August the Skeem Saam actress spoke candidly about the fears of working as an artist during the Covid-19 pandemic.

She also shared what has helped her navigate this difficult time.

“It's been hard, I must say, especially when it come to work. I'm a freelance actor and an influencer, Covid-19 has affected not only many productions but also many brands, and that in turn affects me as an artist. I was glad to go back to work, to be honest — just because my family needs to eat and life continues with or without us,” she told TshisaLIVE.

“There is no option that isn't dangerous, so even though we are fearful, we have to do what needs to be done to live, to survive.”

Innocent shared she's heard stories of people who can't figure out how or when they contracted the virus, which for her only further proves that as long as one has to go out and work, the risk is always there.

“All one can do is keep a positive attitude, great hygiene practices and just pray that God protects us every day when we step out of our homes.

“It's hard, really hard, because it's not only about me, the person taking the risk — it's also about my family,” she said, explaining that she doesn't want 2020 to go to “waste”.
