We were joined in the studio by actor and music Mandisa Nduna. She is a multi award winning actress, entertainer and rapper who goes by the stage name “NdunaRoyal”.
Mandisa is no slouch when it comes to her acting, as she has portrayed an array of characters over the years, she has even managed to fuse her skills of acting and rapping, in the past. This was never more evident than when she starred in the musical film “She Is King” and when she appeared in eTV’s musical series “Hustle”, both of which she took as an opportunity to let her rap skills shine through. Her raps are known for their intricate storytelling, and versatile lyrics, as well as stunning vocals, setting her apart from many other artists in the industry. She also has an online mental health platform called “CentreMentnal”, where it is a submission driven Video Diary community.
Her latest project though was the film “Sew The Winter To My Skin”, where she plays a young man. The film was sent the 91st Academy Awards for the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ category, as South Africa’s submission, however it was not nominated. Even though it was not nominated, it is still must see and represented the country on a global scale.
