But after acting on Yizo Yizo, it seems like Noluthando decided to take a back seat from the entertainment industry and pursuit a more quiet and private life.

Noluthando touched many viewers when she played the role of rape victim - Dudu.

Known as a quiet and reserved student, we watched Noluthando's character spiral into depression after experiencing the horrific ordeal.


Viewers of the show were then taken aback when Yizo Yizo returned for the second season but without Noluthando who was replaced by actress, Lindiwe Mbundu who also had a short run in the acting industry, acting on Yizo Yizo and two seasons of Home Affairs only.


From what we've gathered, Dudu has decided to take the cooperate route and the last time she acted on any project was back in 2003 in an indie film titled Beat the Drum.

Noluthando also has a son whom, according to news24 reports, co-parents with Themba Tshabalala, the man who was co-accused with Jub Jub after ploughing their cars into a group of school kids back in 2010.

Quite ironic as Jub Jub and Noluthando used to act in an edutainment series as teenage lovers back in the 90's. Yeah, some of us are that old.
