Ayanda Thabethe is one of South Africa's most influential media personalities. She always looks beautiful and has an incredible sense of style. Ayanda is a hard-working woman who has built a name for herself in this industry. She is also a model, talk show host, entrepreneur, and actress.
Ayanda Thabethe gave birth to a baby boy in 2022. Her baby's father happens to be a renowned businessman named Peter Matsimbe. There are currently rumors that she once dated Papi Rapolai. Ayanda Thabethe has no married husband.
Ayanda's parents separated when she was just two years old. Her mother reared all four of her sisters, who are her sisters. Her mother worked as a nurse but also made extra money by selling cold beverages and making outfits. Ayanda has previously talked about working alongside her mother in the family company.
She would do everything for her mother, who has given up so much in order for her to have everything because she wanted it so much. Ayanda and her family resided in Ntuzuma, Shayamoya, Umlazi, and Kwa Mashu, among the Durban towns where Ayanda grew up.
She has four siblings, two of whom are licensed environmental health specialists and one of whom is an engineer. Her younger sister, Lungi, has a political science degree.
Regardless of all the struggles that her family experienced, Ayanda and her sisters received a good education. She completed her secondary education at Sacred Heart Girls' High School, which is exclusively for female students. She enrolled at the University of Pretoria after that, where she earned a Bachelor of Commerce in Communication Management, which she later received. She graduated from the University of South Africa in 2011 with a degree in marketing with honours.
Ayanda has always loved modelling, but her small frame has prevented her from following that path professionally. Her 1.6 m height didn't deter her, though.
Before entering the entertainment sector, Ayanda mostly worked for prestigious South African companies like L'Oreal and Johnson & Johnson.
Her modelling career started when she joined Shashi Naidoo's Alushi Model Management, thanks to Kutlwano Ditsele.
