Opening up, Ntsiki shared the fact that she did consume alcohol before she went to Grahamstown. She admitted that she has kicked the habit as it is not a sexy look!
She also added that it is important for people in the industry to take care of their health and to ensure that they have the emotional support they need.
There have been other celebrities that have shared their thoughts and concerns about alcohol. In an interview with TshiaLIVE, Nonhle Thema said that she had given up on alcohol, commenting that it was rife within the entertainment circles.
She also explained in the entertainment industry, alcohol was freely available and in those situations it is difficult to say no.
Thema said that she always tells people that alcohol is not necessary to have a good time, one just gets caught up in the ‘vibe’.
She says that Mandela didn't go to jail for 27 years for us to be drunkards, people need to respect their freedom better.
