“In 2005, around the Easter Holidays - I took a very brave decision. I took a City to City bus and came to Johannesburg. I had no money, no clear plan and no plan B. I only had a dream - a dream of being on television.”
Having bagged the gig on Nyan Nyan, Luyanda was able to fulfil his onscreen dreams and make a name for himself that he has now taken abroad, reported ZAlebs.
