The actor, who rose to fame for his Skeem Saam role, told Daily Sun that people were surprised to learn he was a singer as they only knew him as an actor. Now they see he’s multitalented and will always surprise them. “I might even introduce myself as a dancer, so people must look out.” – he told SunBuzz team.
The 28-year-old actor who goes by the stage name of Skandi Kid, told the publication that he wants to be known as the coolest kid ever to do maskandi. He studied theatre at the Market Theatre Laboratory.
He was lucky to be recognised by one of Skeem Saam’s casting directors just after he graduated in 2015.
“Theatre was all I loved, so when the offer to be in a soapie came, I almost didn’t take it, but I’m glad I did.”
Mlungisi Mathe released his debut album Ulizwi in 2017. His popular singles Do You Remember and Nonduduzo were released last year.
