Mzansi actress, model and TV personality, Ntando Duma, celebrates her 24th birthday today and in honour of her, Briefly.co.za compiled a short profile on her rise to fame.
The energetic and bubbly actress rose to fame in her youth by using her social media personality as a platform to increase her number of fans. But it wasn’t clear-cut, Ntando became famous for both the right and wrong reasons. Most of the time she used her social media platforms to talk about her personal life, which led to both criticism and admiration from her fans. Ntando used this attention to grow her career as a model, TV personality and an actress.
A little background information - Ntando was born on 29 August 1995 in Orange Farm, Johannesburg. Her father left while she was still young and has since passed away. Ntando was raised by her mother and grandmother and attended schools in the neighbourhood. She has three siblings. She attended Boston Media House to further her education in media.
Before joining e.tv, Ntando was a verification officer with a firm called BEE STRATA. She then auditioned for e-tv’s Craz-e presenter search in 2014 and was selected to present alongside fellow newcomer, Lwandle Mbelu.
A year later, Ntando joined e-tv’s soap opera Rhythm City. She played the character of Zinzi Dandala and she starred alongside Dumisani Mbebe, who was her on-screen father, Doc Dandala. Ntando also featured in many other TV shows. Besides acting and TV presenting, Ntando is also a model and founder of Inspire A Teen SA foundation.
While juggling her very busy career, there is only one other thing that Ntando would put before that, her only child, her daughter Sbahle, born in 2017. She now co-parents with Sbahle’s father, hip-hop DJ and radio personality, Junior De Rocka.
Briefly.co.za would like to wish the young star a happy 24th birthday. Here’s to the best day and hearty celebrations.
