However, his love for his mom is evident, and the two have a close relationship where they are always plotting and whispering to each other.

Fanele Zulu, the actor behind NJ, is quite the opposite in real life, as he already has a family. The actor is married to an AFDA graduate named Nana Mthethwa, with who he has a child. Nana is a Jill of all trades and tries her hand in several businesses, which she has mastered with time.

Her photography company is called Iris Cliq, and she has worked with many people, from maternity photoshoots to outdoor picnic shoots. On top is that she is trying her hand at content creation, and her page is gaining a following as she posts content about her lifestyle and family.

In January this year, they welcomed their daughter Luno Zulu who is already landing brand ambassador gigs.
