Nompilo plays a sangoma

The process of receiving the calling and becoming a sangoma is a sacred one that is not taken lightly by anyone who believes in this ritual process. Nompilo who acts as Nosipho on Uzalo can attest to that fact.

This started when Nosipho had been receiving the calling to be a sangoma after experiencing some rather scary and unexplainable dreams that had been keeping her awake at night. At some point, she was even sleepwalking and finding herself in places she could not explain.

The actress explained how she had to dig deep and do a lot of research for this particular storyline. But if you want to know know the real Nosipho, just mess with her family and see what happens next.
