South African lead actress and TV guest Nambitha Ben-Mazwi has announced her interest in coming to Nollywood.
Nambitha, which is also a global activist, revealed its plans to merge with Nollywood to DAILY POST, describing the film industry as the largest in Africa.
Better known by her stage name, “Lady Nam”, Nambitha said she has always looked up to top Nigerian actresses such as Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Jim Iyke and several others.
Nambitha, who started her acting course in the popular South African TV series “Doubt”, wants to join forces with Nollywood to try to expand Africa’s growing entertainment facility.
“Nollywood seems to be the largest and most successful film industry in Africa. They are some of the internationally acclaimed actresses we are all looking up to today such as Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Jim Iyke and many more. It will be an honor to show off and so will progress in such a unique industry, ”she said.
Asked about her favorite role as an actress and one she would like to appear in, she said: ‘I have no choice in any particular role I would like to play.
“As an actor, you need to be flexible and ready to change quickly. I have played a number of roles in most of my films although I prefer the “Bosslady” chick who loves to direct and introduce men to her ”.
Nambitha, who starred as a video vixen in American A-list singer, Beyonce’s 2019 Black and King album, said she undoubtedly found the talent to hit the ground in the Nigerian film industry increasingly competitive.
