In a stunning development, model and former Generations: The Legacy actress Noluvuyo Sodela, best known for her role as Bongi, has turned to stripping saying that acting did not pay well enough for her.
The actress seems to have dived enthusiastically into her new career and advertises upcoming shows on her social media accounts. Noluvuyo uses the alter ego Bubblyb Sodela for her new career and has since opened an OnlyFans account to allow her to monetize her explicit content.
OnlyFans is a social media platform which allows content creators to post content and receive payment directly from their followers, or “fans” via subscriptions or one-off tips. Unlike most other social media platforms, OnlyFans has lax policies about the content which is allowed. Content creators can post racy revealing photos and even full-on explicit images and videos.
Noluvuyo also said that she is now selling content to adult websites such as Por_nhub. However, she made it clear that all her content is just striptease and does not involve anything hardcore.
She also said that she earns up to R500 for just 10 minutes. In an interview with Drum, Noluvuyo said,
I’ve also started selling content on Pornhub, but nothing hardcore, just stripteasing. I haven’t really ventured into the webcam business because I’m happy with what I’m earning now with my recorded videos. I get around R500 for a 10-minute-long video and R800 for an 18-minute-long one. I have customers who pay me before even receiving the content.
The former actress has used her Facebook page to promote her new page called Bubblyb Sondela. She also continues to use her old page to promote her OnlyFans page by posting videos of herself wearing racy lingerie and dancing provocatively.
Speaking to Drum, Noluvuyo explained her reasons for stripping as follows:
“Being a stripper is fulfilling because of the financial freedom it comes with. You can work at various places and that provides you with the opportunity to earn more. I’ve also been able to look after two families with the income I receive, my own family and another one I sponsor. I also enjoy the fact that I don’t have to do much to stay in shape for my job since I’m naturally petite and dancing is also very good exercise for us.
Although I enjoy being a stripper and the financial freedom it comes with, I do wish to grow my décor and catering company…I’ll also have to move back to Cape Town to continue dancing because I’m exhausting my savings due to the lockdown – I’m renting and I still need to send money back home.”
Noluvuyo also said that she was not concerned about what people think of her and her methods of earning a living.
“I don’t care what people say and I know it brings in money and sustains me in a way a conventional career can’t. I always say that I’m here for a good time and not a long time. God has bigger plans for me in the coming years.”
