Getting To Know Sindi Buthelezi Who Plays ‘Zinhle’ On Generations

The South African entertainment industry is growing very fast and as it grows, new talent is being introduced to us. I am always happy to see new faces whenever I watch TV, though I don’t get a chance to watch a lot of television lately but if I do – I want to feel it was worth watching.

Sindi Buthelezi who most of you may know as Zinhle has actually turned out to be one of the people who I think are going to take our entertainment industry to the next level. From the first day I saw her on Generations, until now – I would be lying if I were to say she’s disappointed me, not even once. Well, as you guys know me – I HAD to ask Sindi a few questions. See my Q & A with the beautiful ‘Zinhle’ of Generations below:
