Nokubonga Khuzwayo’s body statistics

The star has an athletic body type. She often shares some of her workout routines on Instagram.

At some point, Khuzwayo revealed she had to stop eating to become skinny. But looking back, she has deemed the approach unhealthy, which is why she uses the platform to advocate for healthy weight loss while teaching people to be comfortable in their skin.


Khuzwayo and her twin Nokwanda were forced to start hustling early because their mother was unemployed and had to cater to their three siblings. So, Nokwanda worked as a waitress in Durban while her sister worked at a call centre in Mount Edgecombe.

Since these were not their dream jobs, they did not hold the posts for long. In no time, the two opened a hair salon, which was successful, and they used the funds to propel their acting, dancing and singing careers.

Acting gigs

When she returned, she asked Imbewu’s creator Duma KaNdlovu to allow her to join his acting classes, to which he agreed.
