Dlathu was cast as the lead role’s understudy in the stage version of Sarafina!, playing to packed houses. In the screen version, she worked alongside Whoopi Goldberg and was commissioned as an assistant choreographer to Michael Peters.
After touring the US with the play in 1989 Dlathu then returned to school after four years of being with Mbongeni Ngema’s artists. She completed her matric in 1996 and in 1997 she was in the FNB Vita Award-winning Game, where she performed with Mary Twala, Abigail Kubeka, and Nomhle Nkonyeni.

Her decision to leave Muvhango was not an easy one. Sindi had spent so many many years on the soapie and she had gained so much fame through it.
When we watched The River’s first season, we were immediately drawn to the show. Sindi caught our attention as Lindiwe when she tried to bury Tumi (who is her biological daughter on the show, but she didn’t know at that time) alive.
Tjoo, See how Lindiwe will do anything to get rid of anyone that wants to get in her way.
Fast forward to her latest performance on season 3, she and her daughter Mbali Dikana set Twitter ablaze with their Oscar worthy performances.
