The situation escalated when she suddenly collapsed at home. Fortunately, her mother and helper were present and promptly assisted her.

Her anxiety reached severe levels after she lost The Real Housewives of Johannesburg two years ago, a setback that has haunted her since.

The team utilized technology to handle most of the planning, ensuring that the event ran smoothly. Observers at the launch noted that it appeared as though an army of event planners had orchestrated the event due to its flawless execution.

Early Discharge and Event Attendance

Determined to oversee the premiere, Sonia requested an early discharge from the hospital a day before the event. She feared that her extended stay would raise suspicion or draw unwanted attention. On May 19, she attended the launch and left immediately after to rest at the opulent Marriott Hotel in Melrose Arch.

Sonia Mbele confirmed her hospitalization to ZiMoja, stating, “I take my work seriously; however, overworking and breaks in between proved to be overwhelming.” Her commitment to her work, despite the health scare, highlights the pressures and demands faced by those in the entertainment industry.
