Is Minnie Dlamini Married? Who is Her Husband and How Much is She Worth?

In addition to her work with the television channel, the South African media personality is also a model and actress who has boasts of a resume that many others hope to one day achieve.

Minnie, who was born in Soweto, KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa on the 7th of July, 1990, caught her big break in 2010 while studying at the University of Cape Town. She won the search for the new presenter of Live that year and thus made her television debut on one of the most-watched shows in South Africa.

Within a few months of scoring the gig on SABC 1, Minnie Dlamini launched her acting career as she landed the role of Miranda on the SABC 1 soap opera Generations. Her new acting role as well as the increasing exposure her presenting gig provided her gave her instant fame, more than any other newcomer had seen. This led to her being named as the new face of South African departmental store LEGit, who exclusively put out her own fashion line called the Minnie-Series.

Her stay on Live was later cut short as she was moved to host another SABC 1 show, Mzansi Insider, a role that solidified her as one of South Africa’s biggest ‘It-girl’. Minnie Dlamini further played the lead role of Zintle Lebone on The Wild in 2011 before going ahead to co-present the 2012 Miss South Africa.

That same year, the young girl opted to resign from SABC 1 in order to fully pursue her acting career. This gave room for her to go ahead and be cast as Nosipho Bogatsu on M-Net’s Rockville.

Minnie, however, made a comeback in the following year, hosting the SABC 1 sports show Soccerzone with Thomas Mlambo. Other TV shows and events that she went on to host or present include the 14th Metro FM Music Awards, 2016 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, the PSL Awards, and the South African Film and Television Awards.
