Sibonile Ngubane has a history of landing roles that portray him as having a challenge as a husband. The veteran actor is talented in making it look like he lives the character he is given. Difa from Umkhokha’s family in real life is nothing like all his on-screens family lives.
Despite being in the entertainment industry for years, Sibonile only landed his first Tv role in 2017. From 1993 the performer has been landing jobs in theatre. Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya gave him his first on-screen role, and Uzalo gave him an opportunity soon after that. His character in Uzalo was that of Khathaza Khanyile.
He was a ruthless businessman who dealt with selling coffins. His bad history with Nkunzi caused him to seek revenge. Sibonile’s character was a cheating husband too. This made people wonder if that is how he is in real life.
In 2021 Sibonile is gracing our screens on the faith-based hit series Umkhokha. He is taking on the character of Difa, a family man with three daughters. He is so blind to his wife’s evil doings that she takes him for a fool.
One of his daughters took her own life because her mother would not listen to her for selfish gains. He is viewed as the head of the house, but his wife makes a fool of him with her illegal dealings.
Sibonile Ngubane’s family in real life
The actor’s marital life is nothing like what his characters portray him to be in real life. Earlier this year, Sibonile married his girlfriend of many years in a colourful at their church, the Shembe church. They had been dating for many years and had four children together when they married. They are all a Christian family who attend church every week.
Like every other actor and celebrity, he has had a scandal before. When a star-struck fan asked to take a picture with him and her kids, he saw nothing wrong with that. However, she went on to post the photo on social media and caption it ‘family’. The actor announced that he is no longer taking selfies with fans anymore after that.
