'My life from the beginning was never easy' — Enhle Mbali goes bald
Enhle Mbali went bare unveiling her bald new look.
The actress recently took to her timeline penning a lengthy post speaking of her Soweto roots saying she never had it easy.
“Bald headed like a full moon shining ... This is me . In my most raw state. Tswana girl from Soweto. My life from the beginning was never easy, though I wear it gracefully. I am a product of strong women, and I myself am one. My imperfections have permanently created perfect lessons. A squire once told me it’s your story! You write it! You control it!!”
In another post, speaking about her upbringing Enhle said Soweto was a “proud badge burnt” onto her heart and she would cherish it forever.
“It kept me humble and true to self. Taught me how to understand a human is not to be used but loved. Not to cover my errors through others but learn from them. Ubuntu and love. I love you Soweto forever more!”
One of the struggles Enhle endured publicly was the unsavoury ending of her marriage to international DJ Black Coffee.
She has opened up about her healing journey after the split.
In an interview on Kaya 959's breakfast show with Dineo Ranaka and Sol Phenduka, Enhle was candid about checking herself into a mental institution.
“I was mourning all the work I had put out, all the fight I had put in, all the work to make something work and it didn't, and that is a death.
“It is the same thing as mourning a death. I walked myself into a mental health institution and I remember my psychologist saying, 'You are seven years late but you made it', and from that day healing began.”
Rumours have been swirling on social media that the couple got back together after she filed for divorce in 2019.
In a recent episode of Podcast and Chill, MacG alluded to the couple being back together.
“Look what happened to Enhle and Black Coffee. She came out saying GBV, he's not paying electricity, now they are back together,” MacG said.
Enhle took to her Instagram stories to say she is single.
“I'm still very single. Not back anywhere. Still my own person. Someone's getting paid to lie,” she wrote.
