From Uber to dream car for ‘Uzalo’ actress Nocxy
UZALO actress Nokuthula “Nocxy” Mabika rode Ubers for several months – sometimes being judged by fans who thought because she is a star she should at least have a ride.
The star‚ who plays Thobile on the popular drama series, told TshisaLIVE she had a driver for work but would have to take an Uber to go everywhere else.
“It was a mess‚ a struggle every day. People would judge me‚ they would say ‘she is on TV, how can she not have a car?’
“I didn’t care because they don’t know me and what my life is like. They don’t know my struggles at home.”
And, she said: “The worst part was Uber drivers had my number from when I called for the Uber and they would message me. My blocked list is over 200.”
Eventually she was able to get her first car – a BMW M Series. “It inspires me [to achieve].” – Kyle Zeeman
