Socialite Nonhlanhla “Skolopad” Qwabe made
an appearance on one of South Africa’s biggest soapies – Generations: The
Legacy. In an episode, which aired on 3 May, the socialite was part of a
crowd of people listening to politicians Mazwi and Makeke debating. You’ll be
forgiven if you didn’t notice her as she was just an extra.
Speaking to Move! Skolopad says this is her
way of trying to keep her brand alive. “I’m trying to get into acting. I’ve
been doing music but people are stealing my music and never call again,” she
She also points out it’s difficult to find
a balance as she’s a nurse, which is her bread and butter. “I don’t have time
because I work,” she says about juggling jobs.
Yet Skolopad is adamant she’ll make it work
one day. “I will do whatever it takes to take my brand up.”
“I got naked to show my scars so that my
fans can get used to them. They have to know this is me now. I don’t want to
hide,” she says.
