Early life and career
Ndlovu hails from Jouberton near Klerksdorp. During his formative years, Ndlovu began playing football on the streets and when he was sixteen, he was afforded the opportunity to join an Academy of Excellence. He had to turn down the opportunity, however as it would have left his mother alone at home. He later traveled to Johannesburg where he slept in a train station bathroom for three days in order to attend football trials with Platinum Stars. He was offered a contract by the club and initially impressed in front of goal at youth level. His form dipped soon after, however, as the new source of income began to serve as a distraction and Platinum Stars elected not to renew his contract in 2011. At the time he was the breadwinner for his family, which included his pregnant wife.
Ndlovu joined Anorthosis Famagusta in the 2015 summer, passed to the crowds warm attention on a friendly Anorthosis preparation games. Accomplished 6 goals in preparation friendly games only friendlies.
