- After entertaining Mzansi for 10 years as Bash on Rhythm City, Siphiwe Mtshali is leaving the show
- The actor says he's enjoyed playing the role of a sleek tsotsi and being part of the show's team
- Siphiwe has already started working on new projects that Mzansi will see soon
Siphiwe Mtshali has been part of the Rhythm City family for a decade but is now moving on to other things.
The actor played the role of Bash, the smiling tsotsi who will soon meet his end on the popular show.
Siphiwe had fun playing Bash and enjoyed having freedom to grow his character.
OKMzansi quoted the actor saying:
"I enjoyed the character because I was given freedom to explore it. Bash does not have a look of a tsotsi, because he is always smiling. So, I had to build the character using one of my family members. I find the character of Bash in one of my uncles, who never tells a straightforward story. I enjoyed growing the character, and working with the whole Rhythm City team."
Briefly.co.za learnt that Siphiwe is working on projects produced by the production company that he and his wife own.
They're working on a reality show, Grooming Boys, which will be aired by one of Mzansi's local channels.
“We have been working on the idea of the reality show for the past three years. We realised that initiatives like 'take a girl child to work' have been grooming young girls, leaving out young boys. I have five boys, that is why this show is important to us. We want to preach to them about love at a young age.”
According to SowetanLIVE, Siphiwe already left Rhythm City three months ago although we're only seeing his exit now.
