Imbewu actress Nqobile Ndlovu who plays the role of Khanyo Bhengu was involved in a fatal car accident on Monday morning.
The former Muvhango and Uzalo actress was driving at Umlazi’s Mega City in Durban, KwaZulu Natal when her car overturned while she was trying to avoid a drunk pedestrian who was jaywalking. The actress was heading back home from a gig in Port Shepstone. According to reports on Celeb Gossip, a good Samaritan rushed the unconscious 25-year-old to Prince Mshiyeni Hospital and informed her family of what had happened.
Speaking to Celeb Gossip, Ayanda, Nqobile’s sister said, “We received a call that Nqobile had been involved in a car accident on her way back from a gig in Port Shepstone, KZN. According to the information we received, Nqobile was trying to avoid a drunken person, who was jaywalking when she lost control of the car and it overturned. We’re grateful that she’s critical, but alive.”
Nqobile Ndlovu is a South African actress best known for her starring role as Nobuhle Zungu in the SABC 1 drama series Ingozi. She later starred as a member of the choir in Duma Ndlovu's SABC 1 soap opera Uzalo; and in his stage production The Game, set in a female prison.
Briefly.co.za learned that while trying to break into the industry, the KwaZulu-Natal born entertainer had to keep her many travels to Joburg for auditions a secret from her mom. During a interview with News 365, the actress revealed, “My mom thought I was attending my university classes, but I was skipping some for auditioning, as she wanted me to become a scientist. I was doing chemical engineering. I missed some classes for Uzalo auditions in Durban and I don’t regret it because that marked the beginning of my journey as an actress.”
Her role on Uzalo was canned in the first season. When she heard of a role of a young woman on Ingozi, she didn't hesitate to go for auditions. It was only after she got the role as Nobuhle, after a few months of auditions, that she told her mom what she wanted to do with her life.
