Noxolo Mathula is famous for playing the role of Lily Dongwe on Uzalo. The Lily Dongwe character on Uzalo is a young woman from a humble background and joins the police force to change her fortunes. She is MaDongwe’s daughter and cousin to Nonka –the role played by Thuthuka Mthembu.
She values family and sometimes compromises ethics to protect family and friends; when the situation gets tense, Lily is not scared to take a shot to protect the vulnerable and the abused. Recently she shot her cousin brother Njeza down, who was in the middle of assaulting helpless Nosipho in front of the masses of the KwaMashu community. Having dated detective Mondli Mdlalose – the role played by Thembinkosi Thwala and often getting compliments from colleague officer Nyawo, Lily is yet to find Mr Right.
The same way her onscreen character thrives manifests her offscreen life; she amassed so much wealth to such an extent that Mzansi questioned her actual age. Over a short period, the 27 years old actress and businesswoman Noxolo Mathula managed to buy herself a house worth R1.8 million. She shared the good news with a post captioned “its possible black child,” an inspiration to those who look up to her.
Noxolo recently hogged the headlines and became the talk of the town after buying herself a Hyundai Palisade car. According to the Hyundai South Africa website, Lily’s new eight-seater Hyundai Palisade car costs R1million.
Her acting career has made significant steps; she joined Uzalo as a supporting cast and bagged the leading role after an impressive talent showcase. Over the storyline, she established herself as one of the prominent cast members.
On Uzalo, the Lily character is a woman in her late thirties, contrasting her actual life age. Just like Lily on Uzalo, Noxolo is yet to find Mr Right in her life.
Are Lily and Njeza in real life?
She sets tongues wagging after posting her bikini pictures while on vacation with fellow Uzalo cast member Nkanyiso Makhanya who plays the role of Njeza.
