Pamela Nomvete bares all with Thandolwethu

She played the iconic role of 'Ntsiki' on SABC 1's soapie 'Generations', a role that brought her fame and misfortune.


So, how does a TV star's life end up in such tatters to the point where she had to sell clothes on the street of Johannesburg to survive? Listen as Nomvete shares her powerful story and resilience to bounce back with Thandolwethu below:  

Pamela Nomvete was born in Ethiopa and studied in the UK at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. She moved to South Africa in 1994, where she embarked on a very successful television career. 

The role that opened doors for Pamela was the one of Ntsiki Lukhele, a character everyone loved to hate. The role catapulted her to new levels of fame and media attention. But whilst everyone thought she was living the dream, Pamela was suffering in silence. 

A failed marriage at the hands of her husband's infidelity, depression, and living on the street was her rock bottom.
