We are joined in the studio by actress and presenter Nomsa Buthelezi. Nomsa is best known by South African viewers being the host of Our Perfect Wedding, as well as her role on SABC 2 soap opera Muvhango as Awelani.
Nomsa grew up in Alexandria as the middle child to her parents, as she had two other siblings. Even though both her parents worked at a grocery store, she learnt a lot from them even though sometimes they would have enough money to even afford groceries. She has said that growing up in Alex has helped shape the woman that she is now, especially attending primary and high school where she would often get teased about her body shape, which helped see her own self worth and gain a thick skin. She was always a bright child that she completed high school my the age of 16 years old. Afterwards she faced the difficulties of not being able to afford to study further at university. However her mother managed to find her a drama academy were she could pay per month, she completed a two coarse there, as she knew that acting was always something that she wanted to do. It’s a good thing that she did because now she is one of the most recognisable faces in South Africa.
