The ‘Uzalo’ actress has recently confessed that she has had her car and home repossessed after she was unable to pay for them.
During ‘Dinner with Dudu’, an event held by radio personality Dudu Khoza, Baby decided to talk about her run in with the debt collector and it wasn’t because she didn’t have work.

According to ZAlebs, the actress hid her money troubles from her friends and family, they didn’t even know that the debt collector had paid her a visit.
