Interesting things to know about Gorgeous Nobandile Gwebu

For those who watch news on Swazi TV, they will quickly recognise Nobandile Gwebu. She is one of the gorgeous faces who present the weather.
I had tried for weeks to get hold of just one of them, as I would watch and listen at their updates on how one should dress up the following morning.
I met Nobandile and this is what she had to say.

Early beginnings…
I was born in Mbabane 25 years ago. I did my primary school at Baha’i. I then did my secondary at Lechwe and completed at Mater Dolorosa (MDS).
I later enrolled at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology where I pursued Business Management.
Unfortunately after two semesters I had to drop out due to financial constraints.

My journey to the small screen’s…
I have always had a passion for TV. At one stage I auditioned for a part in Mbongeni Ngema production. I was part of the No43 final cast. This is where my passion for TV grew, after that show I was approached about the presenting job as I was now not doing anything. I was not keen at first as I obviously wanted more out of TV, but I after I got some great training I fell in love with it. Now I do it with ease and passion.

My fans…
The funny thing about being on TV is you get fans and you get recognised on the streets by people. I know someone has seen me on TV when they shout out my name. I just smile and wave to them. I love my viewers very much, even though some of them say strange things, but it’s always fascinating to meet people who watch you on TV. I have kept the same friends I have had even before I got the job on TV. I believe I am friendly person, I make new friends everyday.

My personality…
I do not see myself as a celebrity of some sort. I feel I do not have much as yet to celebrate, maybe in the future when I have accomplished everything I want to achieve in my life. When I am no more I would like to be remembered as a person who had a big heart, who loved people. I would love to help the people who need help by giving back to the community, this will make me content. I would love to change people’s lives by helping those who are vulnerable. I believe I am true to myself; that is my life philosophy, to be humble and have humanity. I do not like to stress about things I can’t fix. Life is like a mirror. If you look at it and smile it smiles back at you.

My role models…
I wouldn’t say I have one particular or more role models. I take a lot of things from different people and make myself my own role model. I look up to Bonang Matheba; she is such an inspiration to young girls. She makes it look easy, I salute her. I love the way she is so confident about herself. She is a true inspiration to us young women.

My other passion…
As much as I love TV I have other passions too. I love doing people’s hair. I make house calls where I go to people’s houses and make them even more beautiful. I also do make-up for weddings and I bake cakes too.

My family…
I am from a big family. I was raised by my mum; my dad passed away when I was very young. I have two brothers and three sisters. I am in a relationship with someone.
