Mandisa Yolanda Ndlazi born in Pietermaritzburg on the 11th of July 2000, is a talented young lady who will definitely go far in the entertainment industry one day. She’s an actress, Singer, presenter and MC. An all rounder really. “My passion for drama started at a very young age when I was asked to be the MC for the school Christmas concert,” she says. She loves what she does, and she is only 18 years and is ready to take the world by storm. She went to Russell Girls’ High school in Pietermaritzburg where she received Dramatic Arts full colours for her constant contribution and remarkable talent in Drama. She went on to study Performing Arts at Creative Arts College. Her love for the arts grows more and more each day and she says, “I have this undying love for performing and I will not stop until my talent is seen.”
Mandisa has performed in theatre productions throughout high school. In her 1st year at Creative Arts she’s done 2 short films and performed in high schools. Last year she auditioned for MTV Shuga and was called to the call backs but unfortunately she ended up not getting the role. “I did feel a bit sad because I worked very hard in those auditions but my time will come,” she says. She’s been an MC at various events in Pietermaritzburg and outside the city.
She believes that uprising performers need to put 200% persistence and hardwork because it is so hard to penetrate the entertainment industry but once you do, it gets better to book jobs. And lastly she said.” Excellence can’t be ignored and if you are willing to hustle and put in the work. You will be seen and I know I will be known for my incredible talent, I’m currently working on a few projects.” Mandisa is an ambitious young lady and we do hope to see her on our screens.
