I felt like I had nothing to live for. Little did I know that my purpose is bigger.”
He also added that Varsity life also wasn’t easy because he didn’t have money for food. However, he persevered and graduated, but instead, he pursued his acting career, which he also didn’t have money for, but fortunately, he got the role and fell in love with the Kwaito character. He has been doing good ever since he even married the love of his life, and they have a beautiful baby boy.
