South African singer, presenter, actress and entrepreneur Nandi Madida rose from the dusty roads of Maphumulo in Kwa-Zulu Natal to become one of the most admired role models on the African continent. From a young age, she was already working as a presenter for the South African Broadcasting Corporate (SABC), one of the biggest broadcasters in the world. Her physical appearance, talent and African style makes her one of the most idolized media personalities currently.
Named after the Zulu queen Nandi ka Bhebhe, the humble star only makes newspaper headlines for all the right reasons. As the owner of Colour Fashion Label, which she recently debuted at the New York Fashion Week, she is now exporting her rich taste to the rest of the world. With an angelic voice to die for, she can effortlessly switch from designing to entertaining. Given a stage and a microphone, she can easily grab the attention of any audience whether as a presenter or singer.
Madida’s collaboration with rapper K.O on the single Skanda Love is still one of the most loved hip-hop love jams across Africa. As her brand continues to grow in leaps and bounds on the African continent, large corporate companies are fighting it out to be associated with her. Leading skin product brand Lux recently announced her as the new face and ambassador of the brand earlier on this year. More milestones are expected to come her way in the near future, if her consistency in the entertainment world is anything to go by.
Her talents do not end there, as she is one of the most educated African beauties. The mother of one spent time studying law at University of Kwa-Zulu Natal (UKZN) and at Varsity College. This gives her something to fall back on should she decide to move away from the entertainment world. Nandi Madida who recently celebrated her 30th birthday in style serves as an inspiration to many woman across the continent who are trying to balance a successful career, and family life.
While as an entrepreneur, she has done wonders in generating generational wealth for her family.
