Has Gugu always aspired to be an actress?
The renowned actress believes in the clout her tongue holds. She develops a craze for acting at the tender age of nine and chatters it into existence when she tells her friend that she will be an actor someday. Apart from studying Dramatic arts before joining the entertainment industry, Gugu Gumede fosters her flair by hoodwinking the people who live here when she is younger. Perhaps that is why she has managed to make us believe she is older. “I used to create little scenarios, pretend that something has happened and cry. My family would believe my act, and that’s when I knew I could act, although my family hated it,” she said.

What is Gugu Gumede’s role in Uzalo?
If your wife hasn’t made dinner by 8.30 pm, just know you will have to eat it after hours. It’s time for Uzalo, and you wouldn’t want to disturb anyone with eyes glued to the screen because no matter how you try, they won’t snap out of the trance the soapie brings. How could they when Ma’Mlambo, the prejudiced, loud-mouthed and rumour monger, is on TV? She is the men stealing type on the show, but she undoubtedly steals everyone’s attention when she steps into the scene. Now that you know tune in to SABC 1 every weekday at 8.30 and prepare to be mind blown.
Who is Gugu Gumede’s Husband?

What car does Gugu Gumede drive?
Tell her to parade her outfits or her makeup, and she will post a million pictures. Tell her to flaunt her possessions, and the actress gets camera shy. Well, she is just humble like that. Most may argue and think she doesn’t because there is nothing to show but let me prove you wrong. Recently, the actress took to Instagram and shared pictures of a brand new BMW. Of course, she doesn’t reveal the model but proves the humility as mentioned above theory either way.

What happened to Gugu’s wigs?
The current definition of beauty is defined by inches on point with well-laid edges and makeup looking good. The actress rolled with the same notion and shared how she didn’t feel beautiful without wigs. Allow Gugu to redefine that definition as she embraces her afro. “I’m fine with my hair in it is natural to state, but most people would not see it as beautiful,” she says. She goes on to point out that beauty is subjective, a pure state of mind. So whether you rock inches or the afro, you are still slaying, girl!!
