Ntando took to Instagram to express herself. She said, "I know I'm smiling in this picture, but sometimes when in the office, it's not all smiles but tears, questions, realigning, going back to your vision board, constantly reminding yourself why you started, etc.

I think there is a misconception about “doing what you love” as if it is not supposed to be hard. Yes, I am passionate about everything I do but that also comes with it's own set of challenges.

Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose; that is part of the journey. We keep going because the vision remains. We will keep our eyes fixed on the prize. PS: Whenever you face challenges in doing what you love; those challenges are justifiable. It’s challenges that fuel you to rise rather than to quit"

The former Miss SA has opened up about her experience of going back to school and being a mother to a toddler and we have got to admit, it gets real.

She said, "Another thing that we actually don't talk about is mom guilt. I had to work on that cos when the year started, now it's much much better, I don't feel as guilty but when I was still adjusting to going back to school, working and the many other stuff that I do and also juts being a present mother, it has been hard but it is much better now.

"I feel better. I make more time to be with Oyinkosi even if sometimes its just him coming into my study and he can do whatever he does as much as I am still working but he's around and he's there...sometimes when I come downstairs, he going to say 'mommy go study', sometimes I feel bad I am like 'is that how you know me now'"

On social media, peeps have been seen celebrating their divorce the exact same way they celebrated their marriage. For them, divorcing is like a breath of fresh air and they continue with life as normal. For Khaya Mthethwa though, he had to face, many obstacle including criticism from people because he divorced his now ex-wife Ntando Kunene.

Speaking to Khutso Theledi on her YFM 'The Lady On Drive Show', he spoke about how society turned it's back on him and made him feel unworthy because his marriage to Ntando lasted for two years.

This was just one of the many hardships he faced in his life, but they helped him because he can now deal with obstacles thrown at him.

Following his divorce with former Miss South Africa Ntando Kunene, he said society really made him feel a certain way which lead to him feeling depressed and alone. This also had a huge impact on why he remained inactive last year, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

These obstacles, which include alcohol abuse as a Christian, allow him to now lead a generation as he is better equipped.

"I am 33, divorced, been through alcohol, been through just trying to numb the pain. I have struggled because how are you going to be able to speak to your generation if you have never been through what they are going through," he said.
