Jessica Nkosi is a South African actress who played Qondi on Isibaya and currently plays Thando on The Queen. The actress has worked her way up from playing supporting roles to main characters. Jessica Nkosi’s salary has remained pretty much unchanged even with her soapie change.
On Isibaya the actress played the Queen Mother of eBhubesini. Her role had become of importance on screen. As such Jessica Nkosi’s salary is said to between R35,000 to R40,000 on the soapie. However, earlier this year the actress left Isibaya to join the Fergusons on The Queen. On The Queen, the actress plays Thando, the daughter of Colonel and drug lord, Hector Sebata. The actress now earns between R40 000 and R50 000. This is alongside her fellow co-stars, Rapulana Seiphemo and Ntando Duma who joined the soapie at almost the same time as her. The actors also earn between R40 000 and R50 000.
The three have settled in quite well on the soapie immediately becoming favorites as they go head to head with the Khoza family in a battle for territory in the drug underworld.
Jessica Nkosi‘s career began after she dropped out of law school. The actress made her debut on Isibaya as Qondisile.
