Find­ing love in the big city of is dif­fi­cult. It’s been proved on lo­cal com­edy Sin­gle Guyz (2013- cur­rent) in sea­son 1 where Khaya (Thabo Malema), Zanele (Thomas Gumede) and Thaps (Mot­latsi Mafat­she) lived to­gether and failed to find love to­gether too. But there’s a new set of ten­ants who’ve moved in the Braam­fontein bach­e­lors flat for sea­son 2: Skhindi (Tumi Matila), Mazi (Rea Ran­gaka) and Siya (Vin­cent Mahlangu). They’re try­ing to jug­gle busy ca­reers, so­cial lives and look­ing for love. “This forms a strong bond be­tween the guys,” says Tumi. “They’re sup­port­ing each other and build­ing a home to­gether.” And just like sea­son 1, their jour­ney isn’t easy, but the trio some­how keep their bro­mance alive. “These guys are fam­ily. They rely on each other for ev­ery­thing – they’re stronger to­gether,” says the ac­tor.

What kind of guy is Skhindi?

He’s the funny- guy of the house. He’s street- smart and knows how to get around the city. SK lies all the time [Laughs]. He’s been ly­ing to the other guys about his life and he al­ways finds a way to get his room­mates into big trou­ble. But they’re still broth­ers at the end.

Do you get up to mis­chief dur­ing film­ing?

It’s fun and filled with many laughs. I’m an ac­tor by day and co­me­dian by night, so it’s a dif­fer­ent world that I had to get use to like work­ing with cam­era-men, make-up artists and other peo­ple on set.

What’s your high­light from the sea­son so far?

When SK’s walls come down. He fi­nally opens up to his friends about his real life and tells them about where he re­ally comes from. It’s an emo­tional side that we don’t al­ways see from him.

What was it like play­ing that side of SK?

It was a chal­lenge for me. I had to put my­self in his po­si­tion and un­der­stand how his mind works. Get­ting into char­ac­ter is tough but I en­joy ev­ery minute of it and the show.

And is there any chance of love for him?

Def­i­nitely! SK finds him­self in a sticky sit­u­a­tion with a lady that he’s been hid­ing from his friends. He’s se­cretly in love and has to come clean about it.
