About Nomzamo Mbatha

Nomzamo Nonzwakazi Nxumalo Mbatha was born on the 13th of July 1990. The spotlight was upon her in 2012; after she made it to the finals in the MTV Base VJ search. Unfortunately she didn’t win the MTV Base VJ search, but two years later, she was featured as one of the sexiest South Africans according to Sowetan Live.

She is a lady who is always ready for what life brings her way and is only interested in challenging roles when it comes to her professional career.

Growing up, Nomzamo never thought she was beautiful; she thought she was actually ugly at some point. Here is what she had to say speaking at a workshop for young girls:

“Growing up I didn’t think I was pretty. I used to look in the mirror and say yoh, ngimubi (ugly)”

But that never stopped her; she said she knew the only thing important was what’s in her head.

“I didn’t care about that. I didn’t care about how I looked because what’s important is what’s here,” she said while pointing to her head.
