From Uber to dream car for ‘Uzalo’ ac­tress Nocxy

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - NEWS -

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
