She is young, Mbalenhle Mavimbela ‘Hlomu’ from The Wife’s age stuns Mzansi.
Mbalenhle Mavimbela is famously known for her role as Hlomu in The Wife, her first lead role in her career. Viewers love Hlomu’s character as it is based on a book series loved by many people in South Africa. The cast of The Wife impressed Mzansi as everyone was well suited for their role, and no one was miscast.
In the series, Hlomu plays a journalist who met the family behind a heist case she is investigating and started dating one of them unknowingly. However, even her first meeting with Mqhele, her love interest, is filled with drama as his younger brother saw her first and fell in love with her at first sight. Her whole relationship with Mqhele is filled with setbacks and drama as his short temper almost messes things up for them and costs them a child.
Irrespective of all that, she forgave her husband, and they lived happily with their family. Hlomu also has to go through the hostility from her sisters in law and keep playing nice with them. However, Mbalenhle, who plays Hlomu, is the opposite of her character in real life, as she is still young and has no in-laws to deal with.
Mbalenhle Mavimbela’s age gets Mzansi talking
The actress, who has been in the spotlight frequently, is big on living large and in the moment, as she always takes trips and weekends away to celebrate her life. The actress is coming for everything when it comes to her career as an entertainer as she is capitalising on her newly found fame and building a business for herself at a young age.
Despite taking on the role of someone who has the Zulu men wrapped around her little finger and someone they take as a mother figure, Mbalenhle is younger than her fans think. The actress was born in January 1997, which makes her 25 years old currently. Her character is that of a woman responsible for a household filled with men and boys, and it requires her to act mature and more grown-up than she is.
