Mthokozisi Ndaba biography
Not many people know much about Ndaba beyond Idols 2017 competitions and his ever promising music career. The star prefers to lock his personal life away from the camera but is never afraid to cast his deep founded career ambitions publicly. His dream of becoming a superstar remains unshakable.

The 27-year-old Ndaba hails from KwaZulu-Natal where he spent a better part of his childhood. The star was orphaned early in his teen years but has always maintained stars in his eyes and setbacks on his feet.

Ndaba is a proud co-parent with his longtime girlfriend, Nandipha, now a wife. Mthokozisi Ndaba and Nandipha live together with their now one-year-old son in Durban. Being a first-time parent, Nandipha could not contain his joy as soon as the baby mama bore him a son.
“To God be the glory for the prince is finally born. On his behalf, I give his life to you oh might God, guide and protect him always.”
Who won idols 2017? Ndaba was well prepared to become the Idols 2017 winner with no room for failure. His dreams would go crumbling as soon as he missed this golden opportunity. He has since been dealing with the blow of failure that left his career shaking.
Mthokozisi Ndaba Idols competition saw him become a second runner up against the 17-year-old Paxton Fielies. What seemed like an end of his career has seen him resurfacing with several lucrative projects and collaborations.
Following his loss, Ndaba confronted rejection and allegations including assault. The resulting controversial stories saw him lose several performance and sponsorship gigs. Besides, he also lost a record label deal. Nevertheless, he never gave up.
"People counted me out after Idols, and I wanted to prove them wrong. I wanted to show them that I was multi-talented. I wanted to show them I could act, and sing, and present. That I wasn't going to disappear."
Mthokozisi Idols runners up outcome saw him reluctantly accept the defeat at first, but he has now fully opened up and even observed that his loss was not as serious as he assumed at first. He has now been able to secure many gigs and in the process meeting and working with accomplished artists in the industry.

It has been a while since Ndaba joined Vibe FM (Durban) after working as a presenter. The Idols SA finalist received this opportunity shortly after he emerged as runners up in the Idols competition.
“I am happy for the opportunity that I have received, and I hope the listeners enjoyed our first show last Friday,”
Even with his expressions of optimism, Ndaba admitted to nervousness while preparing to crash the show for the first time.
Mthokozisi Ndaba acting gig
After several failed auditions, Ndaba finally claimed his debut acting gig. His lead role on Mzansi Magic film never came easy but was worthwhile at last. The star appears alongside actress Zekhethelo Zamisa as Prince Charming. Bonnie Sthebe could not believe that Ndaba has been struggling to find gigs when he was such a talented performer;
“It is hard to believe that this is his first role because he was such a natural. We auditioned a lot of people but he was the best fit. He was such a professional."
Ndaba is now singlehandedly curving his career path with a greater focus of impacting the South African entertainment industry.
