Baby Cele has a career in entertainment that spans over two decades, from acting on the world-renowned stage production - Sarafina, to appearing on shows like Backstage, Home Affairs & most recent - Uzalo.
With such an impressive body of work in arts and entertainment, you might be fooled in thinking that in terms of her finances all was well with Baby Cele's pockets, but according to her, it was far from that.
According to Isolezwe, Baby Cele had attended a dinner conference hosted by Ukhozi FM's Dudu Khoza titled Dinner with Dudu where she divulged on how she misused her finances to such an extent that it led to her car and house getting repossessed by the debt collector.
The actress shared that the reason behind getting her possessions taken from her is because her finances were in shambles, despite the fact that she used to make $500 a week from her role on Sarafina back in the 80's.
"People don't know that I got my house and car repossessed because I didn't have money, luckily I was able to get myself back on my feet again."

The main aim of hosting this dinner was to bring together entertainers and media personalities of the entertainment industry so they could share their knowledge about how they've managed to handle their finances in this cut-throat industry.
Baby Cele further stressed that those who aspire to be in this industry should always stand their ground and not be swayed by people who want to simply take advantage of them by being coerced into doing sexual favours for people in high places just to get jobs in the industry.
