South African actress Sophie Ndaba has had a difficult few years. 

She was the victim of a horrible death hoax and made fun of because of her drastic weight loss due to diabetes. Sophie also went through a divorce and had to deal with constant rumours about her financial affairs

Despite the challenges, Sophie kept her head held high, and no one is prouder than her son Lwandle 'Ocean L' Ndaba.

He praised the former 'Generations' star in a sweet message shared on Instagram. 

"This is the woman that God decided to choose to be my mother, such a strong force man. As I type this my mom launched @shesawonder_africa where woman empowerment is at its finest. She will show you the greatness that happened yesterday and how many woman’s hearts she touched this women’s month," Lwandle wrote. 

Sophie held her first-ever 'She's A Wonder' (SAW) event in May. She created the platform to celebrate women and provide a safe space to "breathe a new breath of hope, inspiration, and love". 

"Our confidence our self-esteem our finances our self love our motherhood! We're claiming it back!" Sophie said at the time.

He also revealed one of the biggest dreams he has in life. 

"I’m looking forward to the day I can say to you, 'Ma stay home and do absolutely nothing for the rest of you your life as I will take care of you and give you mom allowance.'

"Till then it’s hustle time to the highest level. I’m Glad I have your work ethic. So Imma use it in my school work and in my everyday life to thrive."
