How Old is Angela Sithole?
Born in Soweto, South Africa, Angela Sithole is 29 years old. She was raised singlehandedly by her mother in White City, Soweto. The actress is of mixed ethnicity, as she was born to an Italian father and a South African Zulu mother. Sadly, at the age of six, her father left her mum and four siblings; two older brothers, a younger brother, and a younger sister.
Consequently, the Lingashoni star grew up without a father present in her life. Due to her biracial background, Angela Sithole was a victim of bullying as a young girl. She then became close friends with fashion blogger Sarah Langa as both have biracial backgrounds and were bullied in their neighborhood of Yeoville.
