Nkanyiso Makhanya who plays the popular role of Njeza on SABC 1’s biggest soapie; Uzalo will start hosting SABC 1’s new breakfast show; Vuka Mzansi with Rhythm City’s Nomalanga Shozi from November 20th.
Is Njeza Leaving Uzalo To Pursue TV Presenting
Njeza who joined Uzalo made his first appearance on the show at the start of season five, straight out of prison.
Nkululeko, known by many as Njeza, is a 20-year-old young man who is very troubled who murdered his father.
Fans of the show were confused and unanswered as to whether their favorite bad-boy will be hosting the breakfast show and still be playing Njeza on Uzalo. This won’t be his first time presenting. While he was studying towards a degree in Communication Sciences at the University of Zululand, the star got an internship at 1 KZN TV and he was hired to present a youth program not long after that.
He presented the program for three years and in 2015, the media personality got a gig on presenting ETV’s Craz-e. His co-host; Nomalanga has presented several shows on SABC and BET_Africa.
There’s been no word from Stein Glass productions as to whether or not Nkanyiso is fired or has resigned from Uzalo. We know that the show is making a lot of changes on the show as they’ve let go of seasoned actors such as Siyabonga Shibe and Baby Cele as so many more…
When interviewed a while back the actor said: “there are elements I admire about my character. Njeza loves his family and will not allow them to go hungry on his watch. He is also very confident, courageous and never gives up,”
Besides his criminal activities; Nkanyiso is also a serial cheater and a womanizer who cheated on his girlfriend with an older; MaNgcobo and also dated MaNgcobo’s daughter and MaNgcobo’s stepdaughter; Zekhethelo.
