A rising star, Tsepo Doncabe is most recognised for his portrayal of Nkazimulo in the SABC1 soap opera Uzalo. He is also a senior in high school who is enrolled in matric.
It has not been simple for him to juggle his acting profession with his schooling, as he apparently ran into some issues with his school for skipping classes to film other series.
Isolezwe claims that the 17-year-old actor, who plays the younger version of King Sohlangana in the Mzansi Magic drama series Shaka Ilembe, was expelled from school after skipping four weeks of class to film the show.
Shaka Ilembe’s producers had to step in and explain the issue to the school before they could take him back.
However, this was not the first time that the actor’s school was unhappy with his acting commitments. It is believed that the actor was also told to quit acting as it interferes with his studies when he scored a role in Uzalo back in August 2022.
Tsepo Doncabe, who loves acting and has been doing theatre from a young age, said that he was not going to give up on his passion and that he was determined to finish his matric.
Despite the challenges he faced with his school, Doncabe has proven himself to be a talented and versatile actor who has secured several roles in different TV shows.
He is best known for his role as Nkazimulo on Uzalo, where he plays the son of Pastor Gwala (Menzi Biyela), the nephew of Sibonelo (Wiseman Mncube), and the grandson of Nkunzi (Masoja Msiza). His character is a smart and ambitious teenager who wants to make his family proud.
He also stars in Shaka Ilembe, where he plays the younger version of King Sohlangana, one of the most powerful and influential kings in Zulu history. His character is a brave and visionary leader who faces many enemies and challenges.
He also has a role in Sibongile and The Dlaminis, Mzansi Wethu’s first telenovela, where he plays Sangweni. His character is a naive teenager who has a great relationship with his stepsister Sibongile (Luyanda Zwane), who is the main character of the show. He dreams of finishing school and following in his sister’s footsteps.
Doncabe has shown that he can play different characters and genres, and that he has a lot of potential in the entertainment industry. He has also received positive feedback and support from the viewers and his fellow actors.
Tsepo Doncabe is an inspiration to many young people who aspire to be actors, and a testament to the power of hard work and dedication. He is one of the most promising and talented actors in South Africa, and we hope to see more of him on our screens.
He is also looking forward to completing his matric and pursuing his education further. He has not revealed what he plans to study after high school, but we are sure that whatever he chooses, he will excel at it.
He is also keeping his personal life private, and focusing on his career and personal growth. He has not been involved in any scandals or controversies, and he seems to be a humble and respectful person.
We wish him all the best for his future endeavors, and we congratulate him on his achievements so far. He is a star in the making, and we are proud of him.
