Former Generations star, Sonia Mbele reminded her fans of the eternity of her looks this morning. Mbele has appeared in several South African television shows – Gold Diggers, Imposter, iNumber Number, Keeping Score, Soul Buddyz, Soul City, Yizo Yizo – and is currently playing she-villain, Zola, on Mzansi Magic telenovela Diep City as well as Lisbeth Molapo on the Netflix drama, Blood & Water. However her most notable role was the feisty advertising executive, Ntombi Khumalo-Dlomo, the mother of baby Christina and wife of ruthless businessman, Sibusiso Dlomo (real name Menzi Ngubane).

Ntombi goes viral

Tweeting from her verified account, Sonia Mbele stunned social media with a collage of images of herself in a trendy pair of ripped blue jeans, red hued sunglasses and spaghetti top which barely contained her youthful looking bust.

Within five hours, Sonia Mbele’s pictures had been retweeted over 3,000 times and liked by as many as 31,000 Twitter users. Fans of “Ntombi Dlomo” left in excess of a thousand comments, many of them accompanied by hilarious – if not thirsty – memes.

As Ntombi, Sonia Mbele was the star of most teenaged dreams thanks to her combined attributes of beauty and brains, the latter quality which eluded her on screen brother, Samuel Khumalo who would later leave the show to begin training for his future role as successor to authoritarian father, Chief Khumalo, played by legendary actor and voice over artist, Treasure Tshabalala. In 1999, Sonia Mbele was named winner of the FNB Vita Award for Most Promising New actress at the age of 23.

Sonia Mbele turns 45

In 2012, Mbele – full name Sonia Nomthandazo Mbele – was on the judging panel of Miss South Africa, a role for which beauty is a prerequisite. Illustrating that she is not just a pretty face, Mbele is also the producer of popular reality series, The Real Housewives of Joburg. With her 45th birthday just 30 days away, the three-time mom remains as beautiful as she was on her television debut, two decades ago. If ever there was a movie titled Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number, Sonia Mbele is top contender for the lead role.
