Minnie Dlamini


Minnie Dlamini is a well known South African television personality, born Minenhle Dlamini on July 07, 1990 in Durban.

Live, at the time headed by Bonang Matheba, Tbo Touch, MTV VJ Sizwe Dhlomo and the lesser known Phila Mazibuko.. Dlamini had a huge task is her hands if she was ever going to sparkle in the face of such star power. Bonang Matheba, then and now, perhaps one of the greatest female or entertainer of any kind in South Africa; But this was not a deterrent for Dlamini. She quickly came to her own fanbase , arguably, her growth came at a much faster speed and in far greater volumes. In a few months, she received a role on SABC 1’s soapie, Generations as Miranda. Minnie Dlamini had truly arrived, the amount of exposure and variety of audience she received from these two shows wasmore than enough to turn any unknown into an instant star.

Her stay on Live was short lived, she and Phila Mazibuko moved on to another SABC 1 show, Mzansi Insider. It is there that Dlamini solidified her status as the next best thing in the South African entertainment landscape. At this point she was heading her own show along someone who had far less of shadow compared to her counterparts on Live.

In less than a year after winning a presenter search, she had out grown that show appeared on Generations and went on to have her own show.

In 2011 Dlamini was cast as Zintle Lebone on star studded M-Net’s The Wild, the show was new at the time and had enlisted the services of Shona Ferguson (Scandal as Alex), Tumisho Masha (Isidingo as Dumisani), Connie Ferguson(Generations as Karabo), Faye Peters (Generations as Vivian) among many others.

Despite the star power on the show, particularly that of Connie Ferguson who had anchored Generations for over 15 years, it failed after two seasons and stopped production in 2012/13.

In 2012 Dlamini appeared as a guest judge on SABC 1’s Turn It Out and co-presented Miss South Africa.

In 2013 the SABC had gone on forever over it’s plans to bring new exciting innovations and channels, while the channels never came or are yet to come, at the time Dlamini was spending some time with the SABC 3’s Expresso crew, those innovations came in a form of revamping a long running football highlights show and introducing Thomas Mlambo and Minnie Dlamini as co-hosts.

That same year, she joined The Wild exodus on M-Net’s Rockville as Nosipho Bogatsu.
