Skolopad's life has been anything but ordinary or boring. The socialite survived collapsing on stage, an accidental drug overdose and horrifying car accident. But that's not keeping her down. She's a strong woman and embraces the scars she now has to live with.
Nonhlanhla Qwabe, better known as Skolopad, has gone through a lot. Her life has been troubled but she's bravely standing up and not allowing life to knock her down for too long.
About 4 months ago, the beautiful socialite collapsed on stage at the Samas Awards hosted at Sun City. She was carried off the stage via a stretcher.
Then, 2 months ago, she was hospitalised due to a drug overdose after getting into an argument at work. Skolopad took anxiety pills to calm her down and ended up in the hospital. Apparently, she suffered a nervous breakdown which led to the reportedly unintentional overdose.
The latest tragedy to hit the gorgeous woman was a very serious car accident. She spent many days in ICU and was only released recently. She had to spend her 35th birthday in a hospital bed.
But Skolopad isn't taking life lying down. She's decided to embrace her scars and take life as it comes.
She shares her road to recovery with her fans on social media.
This is one brave and beautiful woman with a fierce fighting spirit.
You go, girl!
