Early Life

Ntombifuthi Dlamini was born on January 12, 1985, in KwaMashu, a township north of Durban. The mother of two grew up in South Africa.


Many viewers of the award-winning SABC1 drama series Uzalo are familiar with her character Mam’ Madlala. In 2014, she went for an audition among other hopefuls for a role.

Then she was a clinic janitor but knew she had acting talent. After the audition, she impressed the judges and got a regular role.


The actress joined the cast of the series as a gossipmonger and friend to MaDongwe, played by Zama Magubane.

Her character develops romantic feelings for boys younger than herself, addressed as Ben 10s.

Though her character and her real-life personality are parallel to one another. Dlamini is not a keen church person and doesn’t go for younger boys like her onscreen role.

The actress, however, has wowed many viewers of the show with an exceptional portrayal. She also played as a church board member and is grateful for the opportunity.

 “I then get the role of Mam’Madlala. “I’m grateful to the producers for giving me this opportunity.”

Personal Life

Ntombifuthi is a proud mother of two in real life. Her older child is twenty-three, while the younger is twelve years old. 

The budding actress is a timid person, unlike her outspoken Uzalo character.

In reality, she and Mam’ Madlala dress differently. She is not also a keen churchgoer like her character.


Joining showbiz has improved her earnings and living standard compared to her previous job. She receives a salary of R15 000 – R25 000 every month.

Though she has bagged the role, she is also trying to improve her craft. She is learning a lot about the movie industry, and the salary goes a long way to cater to her family.

Dlamini takes care of her late sister’s children, who live with her. She lives better since she joined the movie industry.

My late sister’s kids live with me, and the money I earn helps a lot to support us. I used to struggle before joining Uzalo, but now life is better.


With her decent earnings, the actress has gone mobile. She no longer treks to work or uses public transport as she used to. She is reportedly an owner of a sizzling whip and is happy about her success so far.
