With her it’s about talent, hard work and raising a family.

She’s ravishingly beautiful and down to earth which is a loveable trait for someone who is a well-known actress and doesn’t let fame get to her head.

When DRUM speaks to Nokuthula Ledwaba, former Rhythm City actress, she opens up about why it’s important for her to be a good mother to her son.

“I enjoy being a mother and I am privileged to have great support from my partner and family,” she said.

It hasn’t been an easy road for her to get to where she is today, especially when it comes to raising her own family.

Her mother abandoned her and her siblings when they were children as a teenager she developed deep insecurities about her identity.

“I felt the pain of rejection as a teenager. I was at a stage of my life when I started asking myself who I looked like and where my father was,” she said. “At times I would get angry that my mother left us.”

Her mom who had abandoned her was her adoptive mother’s cousin and she admits that her childhood was good and she has good memories.

She says she kept in touch with her mom but their relationship wasn’t good but she had to learn to forgive her and established a relationship with her.

Sadly both women passed away and now she is a mother with a different perspective about how to raise a child.
