So you’re the new Kuti – how’s that been? It’s nice work­ing with a cast and crew so wel­com­ing. I’ve known Akhumzi Jezile (Kuti’s bestie Ngu­lube) for a while and Tu­mie Ngumla (Kuti’s wife Princess) and I have been bond­ing re­ally well. How do you make the char­ac­ter dif­fer­ent? I didn’t watch any of Sdumo’s scenes while pre­par­ing be­cause I wanted to show­case what I can do and my in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the char­ac­ter. I’m hop­ing view­ers will get to see a dif­fer­ent side of Kuti through my portrayal. And how is Kuti dif­fer­ent from your other roles? For once, I get to play the jerk [Laughs]. I’ve never done that be­fore and I’ve al­ways wanted to. The more, I play Kuti, the more I re­alise what a jerk he re­ally is. De­scribe his jour­ney this sea­son. He goes through a trans­for­ma­tion. He has to start from the bot­tom. He has noth­ing and tries to build some­thing with the help of Princess and his friends. Hus­tling his way out of poverty hits him hard. The roles are rolling in, so are you plan­ning on act­ing full-time? I started out act­ing and went into pre­sent­ing for the next six years. I pre­fer do­ing a bit of both be­cause I get to show­case dif­fer­ent ver­sions of my­self and that adds a lit­tle spice to my life.
