“I think to myself, ‘LOL, if these people are auditioning for this role there’s no way I’m getting it so let me just save myself the trouble and go home’. As I approach the gate to leave and catch a taxi, I stop and think to myself, ‘shit, when my mom asks me how it went’,”
“Fast forward a couple months later, after four callbacks I get the role and I am cast as a lead on the most watched show on DStv! Moral of the story: Do not let impostor syndrome cheat you out of your destiny.”

Leyandawo yaydalelwe wena , it would have been a pity kube wahamba wangabheka emuva ngabe sinomuny3 u mazet , obewu somebody kwenye idrama or telenovela
On Gomora Siphesihle Ndaba plays the role of Mazet the car hijacking expect who works for MaSonto. The character of Mazet can do anything to put food on the table and many love to hate her. Its wiout a doubt that Siphesihle is doing justice to her Mazet character which resulted with her gaining a massive following on social media.
