Humble (adj): Having or showing a modest or low esteem of one's importance. South African celebrities such as Linda Sokhulu and Nathi Mankayi fit this description perfectly.
In the world of celebrities, it is hard to stay true to yourself and have the ability to remain just as humble as the day you knocked on doors for that big break in the entertainment industry.
Despite the success that keeps on following these stars, humble remains their middle name.
Nathi Mankayi released his hit song Nomvula and soon after awards the fame and fortune followed this proudly Xhosa musician.
The queen of SABC 2 soapie Muvhango Sindi Dlathu is not only humble but she is also gorgeous, talented and shows great respect for her craft.
She started acting in the South African historic movie Sarafina and she is still sitting on top as an actress.
Linda Sokhulu will always be Cleo from Generations to us. We hardly see her at events and on the papers but if there's one thing we're certain about her is that she is one of the kindest human beings celebrities we've ever come across.
The Soil is one of the most talked about musical groups in this country and it is easy to believe that they're in this singing industry for the love of it.
The lead singer of the group Buhle Mda has us convinced that she's in this game for the love of music and nothing else. You can miss her with this whole celebirty culture that is brewing in the country.
Isibaya actor Muzi Mthabela is one celebrity we wouldn't mind seeing over and over again on each and every red carpet, but because he is also one of those stars who are just about the craft and nothing more, we're hardly surprised at how much of a humble person he is.
