South African media personality Penny Ntuli is topping trends against the backdrop of her birthday. No doubt, since her thrust into the limelight, she has managed to keep her private life under wraps, leaving many to guess even about her age.

Over the years, Penny Ntuli’s age has thrust her into top trends, but how old is she?


However, she revealed her age on her birthday, leaving many in awe. Taking to Instagram, she posted, “Turned 27 today ♥️💯🙏🏽.” Penny Ntuli was born on 12 April 1997 in Umlazi, Durban.

The post has undoubtedly gained thousands of comments and reactions since it dropped. Fellow celebrities and fans were quick to flood her comments section with some heartfelt birthday wishes.

However, many followers thought she was in her 30s. One of the followers posted, “You know, I thought you had reached 35 years old, but happy birthday, dear girl. May God bless you and this day.”


She is undoubtedly a jill of all trades and has a colourful resume to show for it. Despite being dubbed one of the best upcoming radio hosts, Penny Ntuli has also wowed many on small screens with her unmatched acting flair.

She also owns The Closet, a clothing store in Durban. Penny Ntuli also cashes in from ambassadorial and endorsement deals.

She started her career with several local radio stations, including Radio DUT, Vibe 94.7 FM and Inanda FM. She had her shot to fame in May 2022 when she joined Gagasi FM.

Despite lauding Gagasi FM’s gig as one of her biggest career achievements, she dumped the station in the eleventh hour. Penny Ntuli left the station after being offered an R2 800 for a 3-hour Sunday Show.

Against her contract woes, she said” “Ngaleyo mali angeke ngikwazi kwenza lutho. I asked ukuthi where will I be approved. Impilo izoma mengiveza iPayslip yami. I asked ngizowondla kanjan umndeni wami ngalemali ngoba bonke babheke mina?”

Penny Ntuli added, “Bona bangaphila ngalemali? Bengingalwi. Umphathi wami u-Ayanda Melansi, in the negotiations, suggested I consider things other than being ON AIR (this also killed my confidence heavily).”

Barely a few days after announcing her resignation from Gagasi FM, she announced her new gig at Jozi FM. She will host the Mid Morning Chat Show on the Johannesburg-based radio station.
