Mzansi Actresses And Their Surprising Real Life Side Hustles To Feed Their Families

Mzansi Actresses And Their Surprising

Despite their success on the big screen, several of Mzansi's most famous actresses have real-life side hustles. Because of their business drive and a desire to diversify and increase revenue streams to feed their families, these innovative women have gone into other sectors.

This post will tell you about three Mzansi actors and their unexpected side hustles.

Noxolo Mathula, who plays Lily on SABC 1's blockbuster soap Uzalo, is a singer and award-winning actress with an unexpected real-life side hustle: she sells hotdogs.

Despite her fame and luxury, the talented actress is not afraid to pursue money and sells hotdogs on the streets as a side venture.

The Uzalo actress has a successful business selling hotdogs on the streets and in shopping malls.

HotdogsbyNoxolo is a business that serves residents in KwaMashu, where Uzalo is located. The company also serves and visits other parts of KwaMashu and Durban.

The clever actress has also leveraged her stardom and renown to promote her side hustle. One of HotdogsbyNoxolo's marketing methods is to provide consumers the opportunity to have their photos taken with Uzalo's Lily after purchasing hot dogs. Noxolo's coworkers at Uzalo have also assisted in publicizing their colleague's side hustle. Noxolo explained why she picked hotdogs as a side hustle: "A lot of people have been asking me why hotdogs?" Well, hotdogs are my old-time favorite; whether I'm grocery shopping or not, I have to find where the hotdogs [are], so I figured that since my Mom prepares hotdogs that slap so hard, I could sell them to the public and hear what they think!

2. Tebogo Thobejane

Tebogo Thobejane, a businesswoman and social media influencer who plays Belinda Mofokeng in SABC 2's flagship serial drama Muvhango, is also not afraid to pursue and get the bag.

Tebogo, known for her voluptuous form and sensual photoshoots, has a real-life side hustle on the social media site OnlyFans.

Last year, the business-savvy influencer joined OnlyFans to monetize her stunning beauty and statuesque figure.

OnlyFans is a social media network that allows content creators to share content and earn money directly from their followers, or "fans," through subscriptions or one-time tips. OnlyFans, unlike most other social media networks, maintains lax standards regarding the content that is permitted. Content providers can publish racy, exposing photos, as well as fully explicit images and films.

Teboho stated that she wanted to join the platform in order to cash in on her sexual photos in order to feed her family. Tebogo stated to City Press last year,

"My seminude and lingerie photos are all over social media, and many people can see them for free." I'm relieved that I'm now being compensated as a content provider for my photographs. Despite the fact that I have other enterprises, this is a simple way for me to earn money from the comfort of my own home by utilizing my smartphone.

"I'm doing this as a side hustle to help support my family." I'm also coming to terms with my body as an overweight woman. This body was given to me at birth, and I am proud of it. I also want to encourage other fat women to be proud of their voluptuous bodies. No one is perfect. "...However, my followers should expect more explicit and exclusive stuff from my account."

Tebogo first charged $17 (R315) each month for content on her OnlyFans account, followed by $50 (R925) for three months. She also mentioned that one-on-one sessions are available for her followers who are prepared to pay more.

3. Zimiphi “Zimdollar” Biyela

Zimiphi "Zimdollar" Biyela, a TV actor, businesswoman, and Ukhozi FM radio host who plays Sister Nobuhle Nkabinde on e. Durban Gen, the TV character, has a strange real-life side hustle. The actress is a real-life taxi driver who owns and operates six minibus cabs in KwaZulu-Natal.

Zimdollar, who has had great success in both the radio and television industries, decided to diversify her business by going into the taxi business. Although she confirmed her new side hustle, she was not at liberty to reveal any further information about it. She stated that she couldn't reveal too many specifics because she didn't want to jeopardize her new business.

"I can affirm that I have cabs," the Durban Gen actress stated in an interview, "but I don't want to talk about it because, as you know, the taxi industry has issues and a lot of uproar." I'm trying my luck in this company, but I won't go into too much detail right now since I don't want to open a can of worms."
