Actor, dancer, choreographer and presenter Hungani Ndlovu is spreading his wings in the performing arts as he is now making an impact on the e.tv soapie Scandal!
His character Romeo debuted on March 31, but already he is creating waves and has a huge fan base on social media as a bad boy, who does not even have matric.
Romeo is his mama’s spoilt brat, leading to him spend six months in rehab as a result of drug abuse.
We have seen the similarities between Romeo and Daniel Nyathi played by Sello Maake ka Ncube who is now acting on Mzansi Magic soapie The Queen. Ka-Ncube is now one of South Africa’s most esteemed actors, having performed in the United States, Britain, Canada and Europe. Both actors are conman who can get themselves out of any situation no-matter how difficult it is. They only care about their egos and are prepared to destroy anything on their path including relationships or their close families.
Apart from his prestige film and stage work, Ka-Ncube is one of South Africa’s most popular television stars from his lead role as busniessman Archie Moroka in the long running soapie Generations.
He left the show in 1997 after a pay dispute but was brought back within a year after ratings on the show dropped following his departure.
In 2002 his character was killed off on the show, and he decided to pursue his career abroad.
He returned to South Africa in 2007 to take up his Lion King role Mufasa in the South African production of The Lion King, which opened to acclaim at Johannesburg’s Montecasino in early June.
It was announced by e.tv in late June 2007 than Ka-Ncube will take over the lead of their soapie Scandal!, following the absconding of one of the show’s stars, Luthuli Dlamini, who played the role of Stan Nyathi on the show. Dlamini was fired from the show on 29 June after not showing up on set for four weeks.
We hope to see the talented Hungani Ndlovu for a long time on our small screens.
