About the role of Busi Motsamai:
Busi is now 17 years old. She is Doobsie Mukwevho and James Motsamai’s daughter. She’s spent a better part of a year in Japan. She is the arch little schemer just like her mother, is sharp and street smart, and is now about to return home, tossing off phrases in Japanese to all and sundry to show how intellectually superior she is.
