What is Nelisa Mchunu’s role in Uzalo?

Despite Fikile’ s looks being on point it seems she is the only thing she has a clue of. She has tons of “blonde moments” on the show, and is always oblivious of everything around her. Her character schools women not to bend over backwards for a man, regardless of his position to defy their morals.

Is Sbu Neliswa Mchunu’s Boyfriend?

If it looks like they are following a script then it’s not good acting. Fikile and Sbu have an irrefutable chemistry on the show. No wonder fans think they are in actual fact an off-set couple. Their bond has endured fire and brimstone but they always have unquestionable loyalty. Maybe fans just want this spark to continue even in the duo’s real lives. Unfortunately, the two are just friends and if they have convinced anyone otherwise, it just shows they are good at their craft.

Nelisa Mchunu speaks on rape.

Subsequent to her character escapes rape by a hair’s breadth, the actress urges fans not to be afraid to report rapists. An episode in April 2020, sees one of Sbu’s low-life friends persisting that Fikile “wants him”. He coerces her to have sex with him. Providentially, Sbu runs into the house right on time and saves Fikile. “Unfortunately in real life we don’t have oSbu no Nkunzi to bury rapists alive. So please, please don’t ever be afraid to report a rape case. Rapists don’t deserve to be out in the streets terrorising women,” Nelisa says.

What is Nelisa Mchunu’s Net worth?

The upcoming actress makes a whopping R25 000 to R30 000 from Uzalo. Even if her net worth is still under review, sis is making money moves.
