Sibulele Ntlebi was born and raised in East London, in the Eastern Cape province, South Africa. Her birthday is December 19, 1997. So, as of 2023, she is 26 years old.
Both her parents are deceased. So, her unemployed grandmother had to take care of her and her younger cousins. However, it wasn’t easy for her grandmother to take care of her and her younger siblings.
According to Ntlebi, her late mother was her inspiration when venturing into the arts. She says that when she’s acting, she feels her mother breathing and living within her.

According to our research, Ntlebi was enrolled at the University of Western Cape. However, because of her family background, she couldn’t quite pay off her 2017 fees. Furthermore, because she couldn’t get her 2017 results, she couldn’t get any bursaries.
So, she resorted to looking for donations towards her social work studies. Her grandmother would try to send her grocery money when she had it, but things were tough sometimes. So, at times, she’d go to bed hungry.
In the end, Sibulele Ntlebi eventually got the funding she needed and finished her degree from the University of Western Cape. So, as of 2023, she is a qualified social worker.
As aforementioned, she lost both her parents and had to be raised by her grandmother for the most part. However, it wasn’t as easy for her grandmother as you can imagine.
This was because it wasn’t just Sibulele she was taking care of, but her other four younger cousins. Sibulele has also revealed herself to be bisexual, meaning she is sexually attracted to both sexes.

Career of Sibulele Ntlebi
Sibulele has always been into the arts from a very early age. She attributes her love for acting to her mother, saying she is the reason she’s acting. While we do not know much about her earlier roles, her biggest role yet is that of Nolitha Sokhulu on Isitha the Enemy.
Nolitha graduated from the University of Western Cape as a social worker. So, when she’s not working, she’ll probably be busy pursuing her dream of becoming a social worker.
This career choice makes so much sense, as the actor had a rough childhood and upbringing without both her parents. So, it only makes sense that she wanted to help children in similar situations.
