Most people know her as the maid of the Bhengu household who acts like she is one of them. Brightness Zulu shows her talent in acting after landing the role of the opinionated Bhengu maid, Celiwe.

Looking at her in her maid uniform, one mistake her for someone in her mid-thirties. Celiwe from Imbewu-The Seed’s age surprises Mzansi as one of the youngest cast members.

Brightness comes from Umlazi in Durban KwaZulu Natal. Her whole life growing up was based in her hometown, where she attended her school till High School. Currently, she lives in Durban, she may have moved from Umlazi, but she still stays close to her family.

Growing up, she always had a passion for performing and her gift for singing made this easy for her to earn jobs as an MC.

Brightness Zulu made her debut in the acting industry when cast in Imbewu-The Seed as Celiwe. Her character has been on screen since the series started. She is part of the actors that have recurring roles.

Celiwe is considered part of the Bhengu family, and they even ask for her advice on issues. She engages herself in conversations with them and feels like she is part of them. The uniform is the only thing that shows she is the help.

Celiwe from Imbewu-The Seed is younger than she looks

Seeing Celiwe in her baggy maid uniform gives out the vibe in her thirties. When Thu Sheleni showed interest in her and asked her out on a date, we saw a side of her that shocked us.

With the help of Buhle, she got all dolled up and had her make-up done to look beautiful on her date. She started looking younger than she does in her maid’s uniform. Viewers were confused as to place her in one age group.

She is a private person and does not post that much about her age except that her birthday is on 16 April. Three years since the debut of Imbewu-The Seed, we get to know Celiwe’s age now. The actress is 24 years old as of 2021. She was born in 1997, and she is one of the youngest cast members of the etv drama series.
