Nomzamo is definitely shining bright like a star, and her light will now shine bright on students who need financial assistance.


The Coming 2 America star recently announced that she is ready to tackle the scourge of financial exclusion that many students face at higher education institutions.

Nomzamo has been hogging headlines for her impeccable contribution to the industry and for serving as a beacon of hope for many kids in Africa. The TV star has become one of South Africa's most sought after and charitable TV personalities. She is one starlet who has never shied away from embodying the hardships she endured during her upbringing and hitting rock bottom at University due to lack of funding. 

We have all witnessed her passion for education and how she continues to serve as a beacon of hope to the underprivileged through various platforms. 

Her foundation, The Lighthouse, has partnered with Hollywoodbets to pledge R500 000 towards bursary funds. This will help students who have outstanding fees, no registration money or bursaries to further their studies. 

The United Nations ambassador shared the exciting news on her Instagram account. She said there are so many students she used to hear of while she was at Varsity whose parents were able to afford at the beginning of the year, but would later face financial challenges.

"Their parents were retrenched, so they ended up homeless or end up squatting, so, We are here to say we want to be a solution to whatever bailout fund you may need,” said Nomzamo.

The star couldn't contain her excitement about this milestone and urged those who need financial support to send an email to her foundation [email protected] as part of the application process.
