Nomzamo Mbatha on working with Bruce Willis in Assassin

Popular South African actress and humanitarian Nomzamo Mbatha will take the lead in the Sci-fi thriller film Assassin.“I’m nervous because I get to be alongside Bruce Willis,” Nomzamo said.

The 34-year-old actress will be sharing the screen with the legendary Bruce Willis in his final role. The movie will premiere on Showmax on Monday, May 13.The Durban-born SAFTA and Africa Movie Academy Award nominee will be playing the role of Alexa.








A woman who has been mourning because her lover has died, and she hasn’t been able to find the right answers. She’s not afraid to go to the very end to get answers.

Nomzamo said the biggest lesson she learned from Bruce Willis is the beauty of humility.“I enjoyed working with him so much. The fact that you can be the biggest star in the world but still greet everyone on set, taking a moment to make people feel seen, was beautiful to witness. It stuck with me that you lose nothing by being a global superstar and still have humility at your core,” Nomzamo said.She said she wanted to portray a complex character who also experiences surprise in the end. But more than anything else, she wanted to challenge herself in a different genre.

“I loved the idea of delving into thriller and sci-fi genres because I haven’t had a chance to explore them before. When I got the opportunity to sit down with the director after completing all the auditions, we realised that with Sci-fi, thriller, and action, there’s a lot of emotion and heart involved,” she said.

Her first international breakout role was in Eddie Murphy’s Coming 2 America, and now she will take the lead in the current film.

Her diverse characters include Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya, the award-winning film Tell Me Sweet Something and Shaka iLembe, as Queen Nandi, where she was also the executive producer.

The Family of Late Singer Zahara Resorts to Selling Her Belongings Amid Financial Struggles

The family of the late South African singer, Zahara, has been faced with the daunting task of maintaining her luxurious home in her absence. Despite their best efforts, they have been unable to generate sufficient funds to keep up with the upkeep of the property. As a result, they have made the difficult decision to sell some of her valuable belongings.

According to Sunday World, Zahara’s family has begun selling her furniture and other luxurious items, with price tags attached. The items, which include couches, refrigerators, storage spaces, TVs, and more, are being sold via WhatsApp. This move has sparked a mix of reactions from fans and industry peers alike.





Zahara’s sister, Bandezwa Mkutukana-Febana, had taken up residence in the singer’s home while she was hospitalized. The singer’s close friend and fellow musician, Vusi Nova, had promised to take care of her family in her absence. However, he expressed shock and surprise when informed about the sale of the furniture, stating that he was not aware of the decision.

Zahara’s cousin and former manager confirmed the sale of the furniture, while her husband, Mpho Xaba, declined to comment on the matter. The news has sparked a wider conversation about the financial realities faced by many families, even those of public figures.

Many have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the matter. @ObbyBaloyi noted that the situation serves as a lesson to those who have not taken out insurance to cover their assets in case of unexpected events. @DonMasakala commented that the situation highlights the financial struggles faced by many black people who appear to be wealthy. @lesibamike added that living in the suburbs can be costly, even for those who have paid off their properties, citing rates, taxes, maintenance, water, and lights as exorbitant expenses.

The situation has also raised questions about the tax implications for Zahara’s estate. According to the South African Revenue Service (SARS), a 20% estate duty is due on estates valued at over R3.5 million, payable upon death. Netizens have questioned whether SARS can issue a letter of demand for someone who is deceased.

The news has sparked a wider conversation about the financial realities faced by many families, even those of public figures. Zahara’s situation serves as a reminder of the importance of financial planning and insurance to ensure that loved ones are taken care of in the event of unexpected events.

In conclusion, the sale of Zahara’s belongings is a poignant reminder of the financial struggles faced by many families. While her family navigates this difficult time, her legacy lives on through her music and the lessons her situation teaches us about the importance of financial planning and preparedness.
