The Actress Had Her Career Big Break In 2020 With Gomora
Nandi began making waves as an actress in the year 2020 after she auditioned and won the role of Sibongile in the television series Gomora. But before then, she had made an appearance in a project called Bonnie & Bonnie in 2019.

Through Gomora, Khubone has risen to immense popularity both within and outside the country. The project has also paved the way for her to meet and work with big names in the industry.
Riding on the success of her career, she’s been able to also promote brands like Coca-Cola on her social media page and bag ambassadorial deals. The Durban-born actress is definitely on her way to great success as an entertainer.
Nandipha Khubone’s Other Movies Besides Gomora

Her character finds herself lovestruck by two men belonging to different worlds, a thug and a rich man. However, her love for the finer things in life would land her in a dilemma that upsets her blessed, Mr. Duncan.
Nandi is unarguably the suitable person for her character. She keeps thousand of viewers glued to their screens through her acting skill. Above, she effortlessly brings her character to her life to the point that she once admitted in an interview that she finds it difficult sometimes to separate herself from her character’s body.
In other words, she has fully immersed herself into her that she feels like “shielding her from a world that didn’t serve her.” The actress may not share a lot of things in common with her character, but she has comfortably learned to drop the real Nandipha after meditation and wear her character on set.
