Three years ago, Sophie Ndaba was fired from Generations. This was after a dispute emerged between its Executive producer Mfundi Vundla, and other cast members.
Since then, Ndaba has learned a lot.
Her career off camera, she says, is thriving more than ever before.
During a recent interview on Trending SA, Ndaba revealed how she has always seen Mfundi as a mentor.
“I’ve always seen Mfundi as a father figure, and I believe in honesty. When I felt he was wrong, I told him he was wrong. I felt that it was time, not to necessarily make peace but to say, let’s get on with it. I mean why am I moving ten steps back when I should be moving ten steps forward?
So I moved ten steps forward.”
To jump start her career in producing, she felt Mfundi was the perfect fit in doing that.
“The SABC said if we want to move on to the next level we must choose our mentors and I
thought he was absolutely perfect, I mean he [Mfundi Vundla] came up with one of the biggest soapies in Africa, why not.”
She is now enjoying the fruits of her hard work.
“I stepped off because I wanted to grow my business, wanted to add to my business. I do property now; decor, I do project management and those projects, events, I do international events, and concerts.”
