Simphiwe Majozi: People see me as a joke as Sbusiso of Uzalo.
Being a comedic actor has affected Simphiwe Majozi’s acting career. Because he plays a task of funny character on SABC1’s Uzalo, Simphiwe said people see him as a joke. He told Daily Sun when people see him, they laugh because they see him as Sbusiso of Uzalo.
He wishes people could start taking him seriously as this has affected his other projects. I enjoy playing Sbusiso and that I believe I’m playing him well. But it’s highly worrying that the majority of my fans can’t differentiate between Sbusiso and Simphiwe.
When they see me, they ask questions and laugh. Even once I attempt to be serious, they continue laughing,” said Simphiwe. the very fact that folks laugh once they see me means I’m playing the Sbusiso character alright . But I don’t want them to laugh whenever they see me,” he said.
He said he hopes to urge a significant role in the future. Maybe if I buy a significant role like that of a pastor or a responsible loved one, which will change how people check out me,” he said.
Simphiwe’s also a musician. My single Nizobona Ngomopho is doing well. Sometimes once I perform my single I can feel that the gang thinks it’s Sbusiso on stage. That bothers me,” said Simphiwe.
