THERE’S a glimmer of hope for Naledi Boltina, who’s been stuck in Nigeria since lockdown started.
Naledi, cousin to rapper iFani, has landed a role on a reality show in that country.
This comes after SAA announced there’d be no international flights until the end of this month as some countries were experiencing a second wave of the coronavirus.
Daily Sun earlier reported she was broke and stuck in Nigeria, but the musician has since come to see it as a blessing in disguise.
Not only did she land a TV role, she also scored a recording contract.
“I’m a cast member in a new reality show here in Nigeria. It’s called Celebrity Build, and celebrities from Africa compete to win a house,” she said.
Naledi said she’d already recorded a single as part of her record deal.
“I have a new single titled Senseless, which I recorded with my new label this side. Yes, I struggled at first to adjust here.
“I’ve decided to make the most of my time here as we can’t return until SAA operations resume.”
Naledi said this was because her return tickets were with SAA.
She spoke to her two-year-old daughter and the rest of her family regularly over video call.
“I’m grateful that after all this suffering, something positive has come up. God is good,” she said.
Naledi and her manager were in Nigeria for a performance before lockdown started in March and have been stuck there ever since.
