Singer and award-winning actress Noxolo Mathula, who plays the role of Lily on SABC 1’s hit telenovela Uzalo, has surprise fans and social media followers with her real-life side hustle. Despite her fame and wealth, the talented actress is not shy when it comes to chasing money and actually sells hotdogs in the streets as a side hustle.
The Uzalo actress runs a successful business where she sells hotdogs in the streets and at shopping malls. Noxolo is inspiring many youths with her hands-on approach to her business and side hustle. After an extended period of the CoVid-19 made national lockdown, finances became heavily forced and Lily did not have any worries about going out into the streets to sell hotdogs to earn extra money..
The business which is called HotdogsbyNoxolo supplies people in KwaMashu, where Uzalo is set. The business even supplies and visits the other sections of KwaMashu and Durban. The business-understanding actress has also used her fame and celebrity to promote her side hustle.
One of the marketing strategies used by HotdogsbyNoxolo is to give customers the chance to have their photo taken with Uzalo’s Lily after purchasing hot dogs. Noxolo’s workmates at Uzalo have also helped in promoting their colleague’s side hustle.
Explaining why she chose hotdogs as a side hustle, Noxolo said, “A lot of people have been asking me why hotdogs? Well, hotdogs are my old-time favorite, whether I’m grocery shopping I have to find where the hotdogs [are] at, so I decided since my Mum makes hotdogs that slap so hard let me sell them to the people and hear what they have to say!”
With the actress’s entrepreneurial spirit, hands-on approach, and willingness to get her hands dirty, it’s no wonder that she recently bought herself a house worth R1.8 million.
We hope that many young people in South Africa are taking notes.
