It is getting worse in the entertainment industry with certain celebrities as more and more are continuing to face struggles.
Sophie Ndaba is a South African media personality known for being an actress. She is popular known from Generations before it became Generation’s The Legacy whereby she played the character of a receptionist who always followed people’s businesses.
Ndaba has also played different roles on shows such as Isidingo, family secrets, lockdown and others. Sophie has not been well as she has been suffering from diabetes. Ndaba also lost her husband, Max who allegedly cheated and abused her. It did not only end with that, she has now allegedly lost her home.
She allegedly owed Mercantile Bank after having borrowed R2,2 million on 15 September 2016 to purchase a posh home in Johannesburg. The bank was supposed to be paid more that 22 000 in installments for 240 months but payments were not made until arrears made it to R80 000.
Court papers which were seen by Sunday World regarding Sophie Ndaba loosing her home said, “Having heard counsel and having considered the papers filed in the matter, the following order is made against the first and second respondents, jointly and severely the one paying the other to be absolved”.
“Wherefore the plaintiff prays for judgement as follows:as against the first and second defendants, jointly and severally the one paying the other to be absolved. Payment of the sum of R2 254 545, 85 at the rate of 10,5% per annum calculated daily and compounded monthly in arrears from 1 January 2019 to date of payment, both date inclusive”, the court papers continued
“Declaring that the immovable property registered in the first defendants name held by it under the title deed which correlated to Featherbrook Estate, Krugersdorp, be declared specially and immediately executable”, the papers added.
It is now getting worse with celebrities but who can blamed them. The future cannot be predicted, all of them including Sophie made a debt knowing that they will be able to pay it but things changed. However, it does not mean that they should continue making these debts. Going forward when they make those debts, they should think things clearly and have backup plans about how will they be able to pay them.
