Nokubonga Khuzwayo who was born on January 15, 1985, is a 37year old South African actress, singer and dancer. She is well known for her starring role of Zakithi Bhengu on Imbewu The Seed. Nokubonga Khuzwayo was born on 15 January in Umlazi, KwaZulu Natal province in South Africa. She was born and bred in Umlazi but she is currently living in eThekwini, Durban.
Nokubonga has an identical twin sister, Nokwanda Khuzwayo and they act as cousins on Imbewu. One thing for sure is , it's hard to talk about Nokubonga apart from her twin sister because they are inseparable. Nokubonga and Nokwanda attended Umlazi Comtech. After finishing school at Umlazi Comtech they didn't know what they wanted to do so they enrolled at Coastal KZN TVET College, a technical school that focuses on Commerce.
Their mom, Nokuthula Xulu Khuzwayo, was an unemployed widow with five girls to feed and this forced her to go and look for a job. Nokwanda worked as a waitress in Durban, while Nokubonga worked at a call centre in Mount Edgecombe. They held not these jobs for too long as they felt it wasn't their dream. So they decided to open a hair salon so they can assist their mother to support their impoverished siblings.
The hair salon transcended the twins to another level, because they used the money they got from acting to finance their dreams of acting, dancing and singing. Nokubonga started acting on international platforms. In 2003, they participated in a play called Madiba's Magic Song which was performed at the Grahamstown Arts Festival, she said talking to News 24.
In 2007, Nokubonga joined the Lion King productions and traveled the world. But while she was still away from home for a decade with the Lion King, she became home sick, developed depression and had to come back home. When she returned home she asked the Imbewu creator, Duma Ndlovu to join his acting class and Duma agreed. By the time Duma was looking for twins to join the cast so he auditioned Nokwanda and Nokubonga and they got the job.
