“More than anything we have been wanting to start a restaurant. We both love cooking and food‚ so we invested in this business to make it happen. We are starting small and seeing where it goes. It has been a stressful time renovating the shop into a restaurant and still doing presenting gigs‚ but it is all worth it when we see it.”

“The only reason so many people know me is because I am on TV‚ but I am so much more than just Dintle. I am a normal person who loves many things. I am a daughter. I am a wife. I am a mother. I may be on TV but I am just an average girl.”

Koetle-Nyokong plays the polarising character Dintle Nyathi. She has been with the show since 2013.In an interview with Sunday World, Koetle-Nyokong said it’s amazing how her character has grown over the years.

“Dintle, for me, has grown tremendously as a person and I believe that she has learnt from her past mistakes. For me as an actress, I have grown with her, although she is younger than me but believe it or not we are similar in the things we have gone through.”

Koetle-Nyokong is inspired by several people. Business-wise she is inspired by DJ Zinhle, while in acting she is inspired by Nthati Mosheshe.

She also talked about the many challenges faced by women in film and television productions.

“With some productions, should you get pregnant the possibility of you not working is high because they would have to change the storyline, so you have to plan your life around your career.”
