Her date of birth is not known but she is reported to be 28 years old. The star seems to have been born with a gift of excelling in whatever she decides to pursue. Nelisiwe continues to excel even after trying to give up on her acting career.

Nelisiwe Faith Sibiya is a Zulu speaking woman who was born and raised in KwaZulu Natal at Eshowe, she graduated as a Musical Theatre Student at the Tshwane University of Technology. She loves posing and posting pictures in her traditional attire showing how proud she is of her culture.

Unlike other celebrities, Nelisiwe did not have a fancy childhood, she earned everything she has today. She confessed how she grew up with an aunt who was abusive and always reminded her and her mother about their poor life.

“I grew up in an abusive environment. My mom and I lived with an aunt and her husband who always reminded us that we didn’t belong.”

Sibiya’s emotional hit song Mama ka Bafana which is also the theme song for Mzansi Magic’s female prison drama series was recorded two days after burying her mother. “I had to come back to Joburg to record a song for the show but I was so down and out I didn’t want to do it. But my head switched on when I thought about how my mother would have wanted me to.”

She came up with the song after Mandla N, show producer, asked her what was the one thing that would send her to prison. “I would go to jail if I could kill a man and it was in reference to that man who was abusing us growing up. I called it Mama ka Bafana instead of a specific boy name because I wanted it to refer to the male species.”

It is this particular song that opened many doors for Sibiya.
