When he appeared in Mzansi Magic’s hit telenovela, The Queen, as a law-abiding policeman, Tuelo, the show’s viewers quickly named him officer bae for his dashing good looks and well-toned body. But nobody could have imagined that the heartthrob was capable of playing the role of a serial killer, as he turned out to be.

And even though the star’s character has died on the show, he says he doesn’t want to stop acting. “I plan on pursuing acting as a full time career, because I’ve always had a passion for it, but it took me a long time to break into the industry,” he tells us. “Before I started acting on The Queen - I was in many television adverts and I've also done a bit of modeling.”

He says apart from being an actor, he’s also an inspiring rapper, who studied Sound Engineering. “I’m also a hip hop artist, who takes the craft seriously and now I feel ready to focus on my music,” he says.
