SABC 3’s talent search The Final Cut winner, Nasiphi Nthabeni, has made her Isidingo debut tonight as Cebisa.
Nasiphi Nthabeni was one of four Eastern Cape finalists who went through in the competition. The young actress plays as Nina’s trainee in the criminal arts.
Nasiphi was born in Ngobo, Eastern Cape. She grew up as the only child, raised by a single mother who struggled to make ends meet. The family relocated to Cape Town in search of greener pastures.
Her mom passed away in 2004 (when she was 12) and she moved in with her aunt who was also struggling to raise her own six children. None the less, her aunt worked hard to make ends meet and was always loving and supportive toward her and her cousins.
More about the character she will be playing: Cebisa is Nina’s apprentice in the criminal arts. Currently she runs Nina’s prostitution business but is stepping up more and more to assist Nina. When Gabriel betrays Nina it is Cebisa who steps in as her lieutenant.
