As reported by TshisaLIVE, Nthati Moshesh once thought that fame would last forever and that she would be walking red carpets until she died. However, little did she know that she would later be unemployed, broke and on the verge of quitting showbiz.

Speaking to DRUM in her recent interview, Nthati said that after leaving Saints and Sinners last year, she was unemployed for eight months and relying on handouts.

“You know how our industry works – if you don’t work, you don’t eat. My finances were shocking. I had maxed out my credit card and I was relying on my family for handouts. Man, you have no idea. I honestly wanted to give up acting. I felt there was something else out there that could bring me more money,” – she said

As reported by TshisaLIVE, Nthati Moshesh is back on our small screens. She plays a role of Masabatha on Mzansi Magic prison drama Lockdown.
