Nonhle says she grew up in money, so she was not new to it

The star shared that her late father, Derrick Thema, had money, so she was not new to it.

Problems started when she made her own money, which turned her into a monster. Nonhle said she became irresponsible with money so she could prove to her father that she was 'worthy.'

“My father was very wealthy. I grew up in money. It was not new to me but when I made my own money I turned to be something else. Never be a slave to money, I think I was always trying to prove to my Dad that I was worthy. Now I know better.”
