But her reputation is a bit more complicated than that. Nicole has been in the headlines for many reasons over the years. From her public meltdown to her being labelled as the "homewrecker" who broke up one of SA's fave couples.
It seems like Nicole is putting that all behind her and has reached a whole new chapter in her life. The starlet leveraged off of her fame by doing a lot of lucrative club promotional and hosting gigs. She was a fixture on all the gig guides for South Africa's top clubs nationwide. But she recently took to social media to declare she's passed all that now.
This doesn't surprise fans of her on Instagram as Nicole hasn't been very active these past couple of months. The former video vixen was rumored to be hard at work at her real dream - being a musician!
Nicole may have gained a name for herself in a way she didn't expect, but she has always had much bigger dreams. Her time in the industry has gained her access to some important people and opportunities that she is now taking advantage of.
Nicole has said before that she's interested in music, but at the time she didn't seem to be serious as she didn't commit to leaving club hosting. This time around, not only is she leaving the club circuit, but she is already dropping teasers. She recently posted a snippet of an upcoming song and changed her bio to "Music coming soon"!
Well, we can't wait to hear what Nicole brings to the music game when she drops!
