Pictures: Inside Fikile from Uzalo biography, Nelisa Mchunu.

Nelisa Mchunu (born 2 February 1992) is a South African actress, model, MC, motivational speaker and writer. She is best known for the roles in the television soap opera such as Isithembiso, Isibaya and Uzalo as Fikile. Mchunu was born on February 1992, in Wartburg in KwaZulu Natal in a family with ten siblings. Her father died when she was four years old. She later grew up in Clermont, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, when she moved with her mother at the age of 6. Her mother is a teacher.

Her sister Londeka Mchunu is also an actress. When she was in Grade 8, Nelisa and her two brothers moved to Inanda KwaZulu to stay with her grandmother. In the high school, she studied dramatic arts. She was enrolled with the University Of Witswatersrand to study BA in Media Studies, but did not complete the course due to financial difficulties. After that, she worked as a waitress and assistant for a PR company before entering drama. In 2015, she joined as an extra on SABC 3 television soap opera Isidingo. Then in 2016, she was invited to play the role of Fikile in the soap opera Uzalo.

Her role became highly popular, where she continued to play the role for six years until 25 May 2021. Her role was going to be killed but Nelisa begged not to kill the role. However, the producers finally retired the role, when it could not continue with the storyline. After her exit, she appeared on SABC 1 soap opera Generations: The Legacy by playing the role of a disgruntled client of # Ezweni. In late 2021, she returned to the soapie Uzalo. Despite Fikile's looks being on point it seems she is the only thing she has a clue.

She has tons of blonde moments on the show and is always oblivious of everything around her. Her character schools women not to bend over backward for a man, regardless of his position to defy their morals.
