Sonia Mbele’s life in the limelight has not always been rosy, however, after publicly going through a nasty divorce, the actress and producer has certainly gotten the light at the end of the tunnel and she is instilling the same strength that got her through into her children.
If you follow Sonia Mbele on social media, you will notice that her pages are filled with pictures of work, family and friends, and that has been her priority. Speaking to DJ Sbu during an interview on Massiv Metro, Mbele spoke about being raised by a single woman, and her approach to parenting.
“I was raised by single women, you know our mothers don’t play, they used to wake me up at five, we’d open the curtains, wash the windows. We were raised from a different era, there was no time for slacking, there was no time for sleeping, so obviously, that is instilled in your pedigree. You become that person, you need to wake up, so I think it started then it just became a part of who I am."
Whether it's for doing any kind of work in the house or achieving great marks academically, Mbele makes sure that she expresses her pride in her children, and as they work hard, they get to play hard too, especially on holidays.
"As a mother, I do my best. There comes a time when during the day, especially the holiday time, I open the doors and I’m like: 'everybody, out of my house, go play right now. I don’t want anybody in the house, go play, amuse yourself, find something to do, I don’t care what it is, just don't...' "I don’t want them to be cooped up. I don't want them to be narrow-minded, I just wanna open their eyes and open their mind's eyes."
