Real Life facts about actress Mbalenhle Mavimbela ‘Hlomu’ from The Wife

Mbalenhle MavimbelaMbalenhle Mavimbela is a South African actress best known for her role as Hlomu in the Showmax series The Wife. The award-winning book Hlomu The Wife, authored by Dudu Busani-Dube, inspired the soap drama series.

The 24-year-old was born and raised in Lady Smith, KwaZulu Natal, and made her acting debut in the etv telenovela Isipho in the character of Tandzile (The Gift).

Dropping out of college twice implies that Mbalenhle Mavimbela's childhood was not perfect. Her desire for grandeur and perfection is fueled by her humble beginnings.

She went to Durban University of Technology to study Travel and Tourism Management, which she never intended to do and eventually dropped.

Due to a late application, she was rejected from the University drama class. An effort to study acting at AFDA was thwarted due to inability to pay the mandatory enrolment and registration costs.

“I've always enjoyed performing, but I didn't get into the University Drama class since I applied late and the class was already full. I studied Travel and Tourism because I was desperate. I also had the chance to study acting at AFDA, but my mother couldn't pay the registration and enrollment costs, so I had to pass on that opportunity."
