Cape Town - The world was first introduced to Skolopad - real name Nonhlanhla Qwabe -  when she arrived at the Metro FM red carpet, wearing a very revealing dress in February. 

Since then, the local entertainer has gone on to shock and amaze with barely-there outfits and risqué photoshoots.  

Lets take a look back at the headlines that caught everyone's attention! 


Skolopad first popped onto our radar when she attended the Metro FM Awards in February, wearing a very revealing yellow dress

The Juice spoke to Skolopad following her red-carpet debut, where we learnt the registered nurse had been trying to break into the entertainment industry since 2014.


Skolopad promises to stop being half-naked, like she usually is, if Zuma steps down.

According to her manager - Tebogo Mofokeng - she made the promise when she thought that Zuma was going to step down. 

"But then he didn't so now, she's just going to carry on as usual," he said.

Skolopad turned up the heat on the Sama 23 red carpet. The dress she wore completely showed off her one thigh and bum cheek.  

And she didn't just walk the carpet, she went to lay right in the middle of it!


JULY 2017

Skolopad debuted a "new" toned-down look at the Durban July. 

She first arrived at the horse racing event wearing a tradition outfit inspired by Sotho culture, she later changed into a more glamorous dress.

The singer referred to the transformation as the "rebirth of Skolopad."

Later that month Tebogo Mofokeng revealed that the local entertainer has been offered various forms of "payment" in exchange for sexual acts.     

Tebogo confirmed these reports saying: "Yes, Skolopad has been offered different forms of 'payment' -  in order to advance her career - in exchange for sex. These offers have not necessary come from record bosses, but people who have a lot of money."



In August Skolopad spoke to The Juice about the new chapter in her life as preacher

The entertainer shocked fans when she annouced that she will be preaching during a church service. 

But this new journey is not an unexpected one, as the Umzimba singer's father is pastor. "I have religious roots as a pastor's child," she said.


Another controversial entertainer Zodwa Wabantu refused to take a photo with "rival" Skolopad at the Feather Awards nomination party.

Skolopad and Zodwa Wabantu were both nominated in the categories Socialite of the Year and Drama Queen of the Year, and both lived up to their titles.

Skolopad hit trending status once again, when she attended the 9th annual Feather Awards in a barely-there "boerewors" dress.

The controversial entertainer wore a dress made from clear plastic with boerewors placed in strategic areas to cover her modesty.


Skolopad later braaied her "boerewors" for her family, and said it was "delicious."     

She wrote on Twitter: "Me,my mom n my child enjoyed #Skolopad Vors. Bafe Braai. (sic)"
