Every move Nomzamo Mbatha has made in the past two weeks tells you she is a woman in control of her destiny.

Nomzamo Mbatha announces CAA partnership

A week after her appearance at the BET Awards 2020, the South African-born actress confirmed she has taken on the stewardship of the Creative Arts Agency (CAA) to unlock her on-screen career in the bustling US entertainment industry.

Breaking the news on her Instagram page, Mbatha asserted herself in her intention to set her own table. In the caption that accompanied the Deadline exclusive screenshot, she wrote:

“Trust the process. Setting my table.”

What’s next for Mbatha? – Coming 2 America

Mbatha’s partnership with CAA comes shortly before the release of Coming 2 America, the sequel to a 1988 US comedy classic she stars in with Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, Jermaine Fowler, Wesley Snipes, Leslie Jones and Tracy Morgan.

This company alone, so early into the Isibaya breakout star’s acting career, is every bit of proof that she is in full control of her ambitions.

Of course, the great ascent we see before us can also be credited to the work of her managing agency, Epiphany which is headed by Krystal Thorpe and Pumza Nohashe.
