Ndaba’s character while playing a lesbian was one of the iconic roles, especially during a time where education around gender and sexual orientation is at its peak. Viewers fell in love with her character because it was very laid back yet relatable.
Her role as the businesswoman, who held a very high position in the family company was breaking boundaries and stereotypes, from the usual lesbian roles on television. The viewers were just as astonished by the fair and equal representation of the Queer community.
Although Ndaba is not gay in real life but she once mentioned that this role was challenging yet educational as well for her. She really had to dig deep within her artistry in order for her to offer her fans and viewers a character that was researched and fully-fledged.
Some of Sihle Ndaba’s industry friends, actors and actresses have congratulated Ndaba for her incredible artistry while portraying the role of Dudu Kubheka.
Evidently, it is still bitter sweet for some of her fans and viewers of Scandal, as they have come to love and enjoy her on their television screens. Also, Sihle Ndaba’s exit comes after the shocking exit of Nomvelo Makhanya who has been portraying the role of Lindiwe for years.
