South African actor, television presenter and model Lunga Shabalala is celebrating being in the entertainment industry for 10 years. Lunga has been on Mzansi screens for a while now but it might be hard to believe that he's been doing it for a whole decade.
Lunga's rise to fame started when he was the presenter of the show Selimatunzi on SABC 1. His first job on television was when he did an advertisement for Coca-Cola.
He's also a model and back in 2010 he entered a Calvin Klein modelling competition and he won. Lunga then made himself a household name and broke into the industry.
The actor recently took to social media and shared a snap of himself from back in the day when he started his modelling career.
"Wow, someone just posted this in my mentions. This was 10 years ago. I'm blessed to have been doing TV for a whole decade," said Lunga.
Lunga also spoke about how hard it was for him to make a name for himself in the entertainment industry. He revealed on social media that he always wanted to be on TV and he worked hard to make his dream a reality.
Lunga said that he had been turned down many times by different modelling agencies but he kept at it until he finally got signed.
