Pics: Meet Uzalo Actor Njeza Real Life Girlfriend
Most Uzalo viewers can agree that Njeza is one of the most adored characters on the show. Njeza, played by young actor Nkanyiso Makhanya is Nonka’s old brother. Njeza has had his fair share of relationships on the show, he has dated Zekhethelo, fell in love with Nosipho, then he’s been with Nonka’s friend Hleziphi.
In real life, the actor is said to be dating The Queen actress Ntando Duma’s twin sister Thando Duma. Like her sister, Thando is also in the entertainment industry and she is an events DJ/vocalist who goes by the name of DJ Lady Amar. However the two girls just look alike and Thando is the older sister.
The couple is said to have been together for 5 years now. What most viewers don’t known is that Nkanyiso Makhanya almost didn’t get a part on Uzalo. He first auditioned for the first season of Uzalo back in 2015 and didn’t make it. However Nkanyiso Makhanya took the experience as a learning curve more than a tripping block.
Said the actor speaking about his experience. “It was my first acting audition. I didn’t know what to expect, but the experience taught me a lot about acting auditions and how you need to be confident and wear your character before you get on stage. The whole experience taught me to be patient”.
The actor has said the reason why his character has become a screen favorite is because many people, especially guys can relate with his character. “Njeza’s storylines are not so farfetched, they mirror real life experiences in the township and most people who watch feel like it’s real and it’s not just an act”.
