Career

This was her first cinema experience at five years old. They watched Sarafina. This had a lasting impact on her. She said in an Instagram video captioned "Simply Live, Simply Love, Simply Enhle".

"When I watched Sarafina as a five-year-old, I felt everything. The performers made me feel for the first time in my life and at that moment I made the decision that I want to make people feel like I felt that day."

True to her words, she is doing just that.
