Nomzamo Mbatha reflects on her acting journey
SA fell in love with Nomzamo Mbatha when starred as Thandeka on Mzansi Magic's Isibaya. Since leaving the show this year, Nomzamo has shot a movie with Maps Maponyane and has other things planned for her career.
She told bona.co.za: "Overall it has been a good journey and I am lucky to have been able to find the time to do other things. I was also recently featured in the MTV Music Awards. It's things like this make me happy and proud to know that other people recognise me as an entity and a brand of my own aside my character on Isibaya.
Although she feels that the industry is like being on a rollercoaster, she told the site that she has grown. "You have good moments and bad moments but both have to be taken with a pinch of salt. You can never take anything too personally because you also need to understand that the newspapers are a business..."
Nomzamo said there have been a lot of highs and beautiful moments. "And there have been moments where I have been crying myself to sleep thinking 'but what they are writing about me isn’t true'."
Despite having gained many fans, the actress never lets the hype get to her head. "So even if it’s ten thousand men or women who tell you 'oh, you’re this, oh you’re that' it will never be a reality until you believe it yourself. It’s one of those things that I take within my stride and I definitely appreciate it," she said.
