Actress Nomzamo Mbatha broke her silence about her anxiety at learning that will not be able to return home to SA because of the Coronavirus. Now any hope of returning home is completely lost.
In an interview with True love magazine, she openly admitted that not being able to go home was one of her biggest fears and that made her panic.
“My plan was to return to SA so I could be closer to my family, but Covid-19 travel restrictions have locked me out of my home country. This heightened one of my biggest fears: that of not being able to return home. I initially panicked, but my calm has returned. I am coping, though it has been scary”.
The US-based star further added that she was taking it one day at a time and she was really grateful that the neighbourhood she lived in had essential stores near by.
Nomzamo made the decision to move to America last year after being cast in the highly- anticipated Coming to America sequel.
She will be acting along side a Star-studded international cast that includes the legendary Eddie Murphy (Prince Akeem), James Earl Jones (King Jaffe Joffer) and Arsenio Hall (Semmi). New cast members include Jermaine Fowler, Wesley Snipes, Tracy Morgan, Leslie Jones, Kiki Layne, Rick Ross, Teyana Taylor and Garcelle Beauvais.
Besides her fears giving her sleepless nights, Nomzamo experienced a 3.8 magnitude earthquake that hit the View Park-Windsor Hills area of Los Angeles just last month.
“I was actually walking from the hallway to the bathroom and I felt a tremble But then I quickly dismissed it and thought, ‘damn girl why you walk so heavy’ … Kanti,” Nomzamo said of the experience.
