Cape Town – South African actress and businesswoman Sophie Ndaba this week revealed a lot about herself, as she spoke about her childhood in Zimbabwe, her illness, as well as her 22-year acting career during a radio interview.
Earlier this month, the former Generations actress announced her return to social media after taking a nine months break.
Around the time of her disappearance on social media, her son Lwandle accused Sophie’s former husband, Max Lechaba of abusing his mother in a diss track.
During the interview on 959 Breakfast with Dineo Ranaka and Sol Phenduka, the actress opened up about her battle with diabetes and how she and her family moved to Zimbabwe.
She later left their home and went to a boarding school before moving into a foster home after finishing school.
“I got semi-adopted by a very wealthy family. They had like 10 businesses and that’s where my business about business from. I always say to people learn the good and the bad,” she said.
She said while her peers were “partying on weekends” she was working at various shops to learn about business and now she runs her own business.
Sophie also spoke about motherhood and her relationship with her son, Lwandle who released a diss track accusing his stepfather, Max Lechaba of abuse.
