Career journey in acting
He started to do theatre acting with some of the student at the college. That was just after he graduated from the college. They used to be part of Festivals in KwaMashu. He started to attend screen auditions and was rejected. The rejection made him to want to give up during that time. So instead of doing nothing at all his family encouraged him to get a job. Luckily he got a job as retailers working at the till. Unfortunately he didn’t love the job so he left it because he was unhappy.
After being rejected and having a job he didn’t love, he decided to try auditions again.
That time he did auditions for Mandla N and he was impressed with his acting skills. Mandla N complimented him that he was good, so from then he went home and stayed there for long time before they called him. After some time when he has forgotten about the auditions. He received a call one morning telling him that he got a role to play as Herbert on DiepCity. Joyfully, he screamed and packed his bags to go to Johannesburg.
