Actress Gabisile Tshabalala has credited her newly discovered talent looks to her separation from liquor.
Tshabalala, 28, said she had not touched the fire waters in three years and has never been more happier.
“I look younger than my age because I don’t drink anymore. When I used to drink I looked ugly and old,” she said.
Tshabalala, best referred to for her part as Pinkie Mojeki in the SABC2 dramatization arrangement Hola Mpintshi, said she quit alcohol since she didn’t see the utilization of drinking any longer.
She revealed to Sunday World that she could stop gradually despite the fact that she had never imagined her life without drinking.
“I prayed about it because I had thought about stopping for a long time. I started to drink less and eventually stopped completely,” she said.
Tshabalala, who is also a singer and presenter, is back on the second season of Throw Back Thursday, a variety show she she will be co-hosting with comic Skhumba on SABC1 each Thursday night.
She said she was recommended by the comedian and when she met the producers of the show they liked her instantly.
“I was a little sceptical at first because the show is a comedy and I would be co-hosting with a comedian.
“I thought what am I going to be doing? Should I try to be funny? But I got there and did my thing.”
Her acting career started at 19 years old when she auditioned for SABC’s Hola Mpintshi and got a lead role.
