Mzansi Magic's young Gomora star, Teddy, has been a fan favourite since he made his debut. The talented actor has won his first award and fans are buzzing in his praise.
As an actor, it is extremely rewarding when your efforts are noticed not only by fans but by industry professionals as well. Receiving awards for your craft is what makes all the hard work truly worth it.
Brielfy.co.za learnt that actor Sicelo Buthelezi received an award at the 4th Royalty Soapie Awards for his role as Teddy on Gomora. The awards aired on SABC 1 on Saturday evening.
The awards were hosted by comedian Mpho Popps and TV and radio personality Lerato Kganyago. It was pre-recorded to avoid any disappointment and disappoint it did not.
Award-winning singers Ami Faku and Shekhinah performed at the awards and it was an all-round night filled with success. Gomora fans really felt it when Teddy’s name was called for an award.
Sicelo walked away with the Outstanding Newcomer award. Since his debut on the soapie, Sicelo has delivered over and above what fans expected and truly deserves the award that he received. Sincelo was overcome with emotion as he accepted his award.
“First of all, I would like to thank the man above, I would like to thank my mum for supporting me. I would like to thank my sister. I would like to thank my little brother. I would like to thank the cast…”
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Gomora fans are living for the character Zodwa, who is Teddy's mother. She has become a fan fav and viewers just can’t get enough of her. The Mzansi Magic drama started entertaining peeps not even a month ago and it is already a staple.
Briefly.co.za has seen the buzz Zodwa has caused. Sana Mchunu plays the role and the people just love her. Gomora has a lit cast with some major entertainment industry names such as Zolisa Xaluva, Connie Chiume and Katlego Danke.
With it just being a couple of weeks into the show, Zodwa’s humorous nature has definitely won viewers over – she’s a total card!
