As Ngcobo’s acting career progresses, she hopes to be remembered not only for her exceptional talent but also for the advocacy work she has undertaken to shed light on the critical issue of domestic violence in South Africa. Her story is a testament to the power of perseverance and the transformative impact that can be achieved when personal experiences are channeled into meaningful art and activism.

She said:

“ In the early stages of my career, I suffered a lot of rejection and humiliation to the extent of nearly giving up on my dream.But I trust God wanted me to go through all that so that when He raise me.I glorify His name, I have managed to overcome rejection through prayer and accepting that some of the jobs I had auditioned for were just not for me at the time”, she said.

“Don’t stay in an abusive relationship. Walk away; run if needs be,” said Nothando.

“I come from humble beginnings. Being celebrated is a challenge for me because I don’t want people to see me differently. I’m a human being, just like them. But when people watch you on TV, they treat you like a different person. I don’t want to change. I’m Nothando, who still hangs out with the same friends and lives with her family. I don’t want fame to get into me,” said Nothando.
