The women who made me
Entertainer and actor on Mzansi Magic’s The Queen, Moshe Ndiki is one of SA’S f avo u ri t e rising stars. Here he talks about the five women who have been his biggest source of inspiration.
She has taught me that God’s delay is definitely not God’s denial, and that all good things are worth waiting for. Her constant support for me and my craft is always appreciated, and she’s forever ready to celebrate every big or small victory. Her friendship and love means a lot to me.
My biggest role model in TV presenting, Bonang’s ability to be herself on TV is amazing – not to mention the confidence she exudes when she walks into a room. Her work ethic, which is like no other, and has made me a proud member of the ‘B Force’. She has also solidified her brand in an admirable way.
As a single mom, it didn’t always come easy raising me, but she came through; consistently supporting my dreams and my sexuality. She taught me a lot about business, caring for your family and how to look presentable. But most importantly, her love and lessons on forgiveness has made me confident, and inspired me to be a better person on a daily basis.
I grew up watching Connie on TV, and would constantly read about how she respected the people she worked with in the industry. Now I’m working with her! Her level of professionalism and all her achievements make me want to aim for the stars. When I started on The Queen, she held my hand and guided me until I found my feet developing my character. She’s an absolute wonder woman.
Pearl helped open the doors to the industry for me. When I was interning at Metro FM, she was my mentor, advisor and friend. She would always keep it real with me. I also admire her work ethic and consistency in this game. Personally, she’s such a great friend and is full of love to give.
