Former Generations actress, Winnie Ntshaba (formerly Modise) who played the role of Khethiwe in the soapie has opened up about her childhood, education and dating.

Ntshaba, who is from Eshowe in Kwa-Zulu Natal explained that her childhood bears no trace of glitz and glamour. In fact the 39 year old actress and business woman said that life was difficult when growing up but because almost everyone was in the same state of poverty, she seldom took note of her suffering.

She has seen it all. The smooth and glowing skin you see today used to apply cooking oil in place of a body lotion. Ntshaba went further to tell Pearl of Zaziwa that her mother did everything in her powers to make sure that all her children go to bed on a full stomach even if it meant there is pap and Orange for supper.

However, for Ntshaba life was normal and everything made sense. It is only now that she is well off that she is able to comprehend how difficult life was when growing up

Despite everything, Ntshaba valued and worshipped education. She even vowed not to date until she’s done with her degree, although she reneged on her promise and met her first boyfriend while doing 3rd year and only 21 years.

Ntshaba became the third University graduate in her village and explained that she drew inspiration from the first two graduates, of which one of them happened to be her sister.

Currently Ntshaba is single following her highly publicized divorce from husband Thabo Modise and said she is not looking. With her job at Generations hanging in the balance, clearly she has a lot in her plate to worry about and dating is probably the last thing to ever cross her mind.
