The actor told Daily Sun that he was forced to move to Durban where Uzalo is shot and has now reunited with his 12-year-old son.
His son Siphosethu Biyela had been living with his mother in Durban and would at times take flights to Johannesburg to meet his father as his parents are no longer together.
The actor stated:
“My son was staying with his mother when I was still working in Johannesburg. He would sometimes fly to visit me in Joburg. We’re no longer together with his mother but she did a wonderful job in raising him because I notice the respect that he shows.”
