eHostela actor, Thobani Nzuza, has bagged himself a role in the popular show, Uzalo, which is aired on SABC 1.
ZAlebs reported that Marang Setshwaelo, Uzalo's publicist, has confirmed that Thobani is the latest addition to the show's cast.
According to Isolezwe, Thobani's time on the show will not be short or limited, and described his character as 'meaty and expandable'.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the KZN-born actor will play the role of Bheki and the initial storyline revolves around Bheki, Qabhanga and Gabisile, however more details about the character haven't been made public yet.
About 2 weeks ago, the actor got tongues wagging when rumours started going around about his love life.
Fans were wondering if Thobani and his eHostela co-star, Lungelo Mpangase, had made their on-screen romance a reality.
Lungelo shared a snap of her Thobani and they looked very cosy (and rather smitten) in the snap. The two have a beautiful on-screen relationship that fans think has blossomed into something real.
However, these rumours have not been confirmed by either of them, so for now, that's all they are - rumours.
