The renowned actress is one strong lady. Nandi Mbatha is only 13 years of age when she is diagnosed with anxiety disorder which she was diagnosed with a little over 10 years ago but that does not stop her from making a mark in the industry. Nandi Mbatha is a public figure and exposure comes with the territory yet her mental health does not allow her to cope in crowds. Despite all that she is determined to break ceilings and reach the sky. Her apprehension is also triggered by stress and enclosed spaces, consequently she has a coping mechanism. “If I’m in a stressful situation I take Rescue Remedy pills to calm me down,” she says. “I take them at least three times a week.” Although she seems to be comfy in front of the camera lens, notoriety is still a subject of her life she still grapples with.
How did her acting career start?
Believe it or not, Nandi’s “Isithembiso” role was her first acting gig and yet she did it like a pro. “I had a few modelling jobs after school and a few adverts, nothing major. When I read about the auditions for Isithembiso on social media I jumped at it,” she evokes. She recounts how she was the preceding person to audition and had to kiss Zamani Mbatha, who plays Zamani on the show. Only after the audition did the two find out they share a surname.

My dad is a very traditional Zulu man and he wouldn’t have been happy if we were related.” Luckily the two are not related.

Who is Nandi Mbatha’s Boyfriend?
Three boyfriends in less than two years, does Nandi change boyfriends like she changes her outfits or she simply is looking for the right one and hasn’t found him yet? The sizzling hot model once was heads over heels with Tellaman for almost a year. Nandi is mostly in love with Tellaman’s chill vibes. She hints that his energy helped her manage her anxiety. So why did they call it quits? Sis loves to keep her love life a mystery hence the reason behind the duo’s break up is pure speculation. Purportedly, Tellaman’s quest for making money moves and expanding his career put a strain on their relationship. The girl had needs and simply couldn’t take it anymore.
Prior to Nandi and Tellaman’s break up, the media went abuzz with news of a new boo for the model. It was none other than the junior creative director of Quiteria Atelier, Mpho Motsi. “Nandi came to the Quiteria Atelier studio for fittings. We got talking and it turned out that we had a lot in common,” Mpho tells Drum. The two met on the job and it is the same job that had their relationship going south. The Paris fashion week was a catalyst to their love ending. Nandi did not take it too well when the designer repudiates the release of photoshoot images of the actress, which she meant to use for her portfolio. “I had never seen Nandi so disappointed. She really just believes that Quiteria did not want to help her advance her brand and that she felt that it was sabotage,” mentions an anonymous source.

Nandi and Anga met on set and though the former kept the latter in the friend zone, it seems he has been promoted to boyfriend status.

She is a sizzling hot model, talented actress and a brand ambassador for Quiteria Atelier so she ought to be cashing in big bucks.

While some girls her age are waiting on “Amablesser”, sis is making money moves and spoiling herself rotten. Have a look at the rides she owns.
