Three years ago if you had asked any South African about Nomzamo Mbatha chances are you would have been met with a blank stare. Today she is the reigning queen of the small screen and beyond, from Isibaya to Umlilo, currently on e.tv. You have seen her on magazine covers, billboards and on movie screens. In no particular order here are the times we thought Nomzamo was doing this life thing right.
Nomzamo Mbatha - Neutrogena contract
Last year Nomzamo joined Kerry Washington and Gabrielle Union as the face of the skincare brand. She is the first South African to be a Neutrogena spokesperson. She also signed with Puma as an ambassador.
Rocking an enviable afro and draped in MaXhosa Knitwear Nomzamo was doing the most on Destiny as she opened up about family, her future goals and work ethic. Her younger sister committed suicide in 2014 and Nomzamo has been quite vocal on social media about how unbearable the pain has been. As well as how difficult it is to deal with those who think because she is in the public eye and has to attend certain functions she has somehow moved on.
That time she was keeping her relationship with your man crush on the low...
They have starred in a box office hit together, appeared in a disrobed state on the cover of True Love magazine and been photographed at functions many times. In spite of this the two deny they are an item and coyly refer to each other as buddies in interviews. We are just going to keep liking their Insta pics together and sipping this tea…
Her plans for world domination are coming along nicely!
Because she is a Smart Hot Girl she is not resting on her laurels. While appearing on local TV she has also engaged the services of Moonyeenn Lee who helped propel Terry Phetho to stardom as well as publicists in LA to make sure the right people ate hearing her name.
In her own words: I don’t see myself as a brand, but as a business. Coca-Cola is a brand – it looks a certain way and never changes – but the actual business behind the beverage, The Coca-Cola Company, is constantly innovating itself, evolving and adapting to change.
