Nandipha Khubone was born between 1999 and 2000 in Durban, KwaZulu Natal province in South Africa. While still in primary school, Nandipha used to get small roles in plays, that's when she knew she wanted more of it because she really enjoyed acting. She grew up watching the very actors she now calls colleagues for her it's a crazy but amazing experience.
When Nandipha got into high school she focused more on extra- curricular activities and started doing public speaking and other things that would get her on stage." I also started theatre and when I saw that I was excelling in it, I knew that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life," said Nandipha. In 2018, Nandipha decided to go abroad (in America) to study acting but she had to come back home because of COVID-19 but proceeded with her studies online. So, she studied filmmaking, directing and producing at the NewYork Film Academy.
Nandipha started to realise her acting career when she made her debut on Mzansi Magic TV series of Gomora. But before her debut, Nandi was shaperning her acting skills in Theatres. According to her, getting a role on Gomora wasn't a victim silver platter, the rising star had to go through numerous auditions before she was accepted. " I matched the character description and I submitted my audition tape by myself as it wasn't seen, so I sent it against through my manager and it was seen by the producers. They then called me right away and told me it was a done deal. We went in for one more round and it was history after that," she recalls.
