Award-winning actress Connie Chiume is trending against the backdrop of her recent Instagram post. No doubt, with a career spanning years, she has quickly become one of the most followed actresses and often tops trends whenever she posts on her social media timelines.

The actress set social media abuzz after sharing her picture-perfect photos.


The award-winning actress’ youthful looks convinced Mzansi that she looked younger than her age. The photos have gained thousands of comments and reactions. However, this is not the first time she has wowed fans with her ageless looks.

However, the actress even gushed over her looks. The other part of Connie Chiume’s caption reads, “I felt and looked like a 40-year-old lady!! Yes, I’m still 72.”

In the now-viral photos, the actress had make-up and complemented her look with a purple shade weave. Against the now-viral photos Mzansi was quick to implicate her age into the mix. How old is Connie Chiume?

Despite being one of the most sought-after and celebrated actresses, Connie Chiume has managed to keep her private life under wraps. However, she has not kept her age under wraps like other celebrities.

After all, life begins at 40, and the “31-year-old” actress has the looks to show for it. Many find it puzzling that the actress is 71 years old. Connie Chiume was born on 5 June 1952 in Welkom. She will be turning 72 this year.


She has been dubbed one of the best South African actors ever to grace the small screens. Connie Chiume has starred in several big-budget films, including Black Panther, Black Is King and Blessers.

The actress is also known for perfectly nailing her on-screen characters on Zone 14, Rhythm City and Gomora. Surprisingly, the actress was a teacher before she had her shot to fame.

After retiring as a teacher, she moved to Greece before returning to South Africa. Connie Chiume had several roles in several productions, including Porgy and Bess, Ipi Ntombi and Warriors of Hell.

The actress had her shot to fame in 2007 when she starred as Stella Moloi in the SABC drama series Zone 14. Her unmatched flair earned her a SAFTA. Against her newfound fame, she joined Rhythm City, and the rest was history.

She has been winning big since then and has starred in several productions. However, Connie Chiume has also capped her illustrious career with several awards.
