In Pictures: Rags to riches, the story of Ntando Duma. We can all agree that Ntando Duma has been making headlines quite a lot lately, and she has made herself newsworthy despite her humble beginnings.
The 26-year-old actress was born in Orange Farm in Johannesburg. Her mother and grandmother brought up Ntando after her father left when she was only three years old, and he later passed on in 2008. The actress has three other siblings that needed her mother’s support. She says that growing up, they struggled, so they did not have the luxury of getting pocket money. The innocence of being a child protected her from the hardships that were going on at home as she played in the streets like every other child.
