The SA entertainment industry is mourning the passing of Class Act finalist Muzi Clive Ngwenya. According to unconfirmed reports, Muzi passed away on Tuesday, the cause of his death is yet to be known.

Social media is abuzz with messages of condolences about the passing of this talented actor. We first saw his acting abilities when he entered the talent search competition Class Act.

'I want to gain as much exposure and experience in the film industry, and Class Act is now providing this stepping stone for me', this is what he had to say about the competition.

He might have not walked away with the ultimate prize but surely was loved by many which is evident in social networks. His acting career was not taken aback by not winning the first season of Class Act, in fact it soared.

And it seems like it was not just a stepping stone he got from Class Act as he featured in many local productions and even a movie called Winnie, which is about the life of struggle herion Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, starring US actress and songbird Jennifer Hudson which is due to be released some time this year.

Growing up in Eldorado Park, Muzi became a huge fan of Al Pacino and Denzel Washington.  This lead to him ultimately becoming an actor and actively seeking roles in the film industry.

Even as a little boy, he would practice acting in front of a mirror after watching a movie. Even though he has had no formal acting lessons, he has had roles on television and in a television commercial, Class Act website describes him.

SABC1 tweeted, “RIP to the humble and talented Muzi Clive. Gone too soon, our prayers are with your loved ones.”

May his soul rest in peace.
