Mzikayise Makroti is a celebrated South African actor best known for his Diep City on-screen character Fistos. He has been making all sorts of headlines of late. His unmatched acting flair has wowed Mzansi.
Since the debut of the drama series, he has managed to wow Mzansi with his flair as he is always finding himself in trouble. Sne and Fistos have managed to keep Mzansi entertained. However, in the backdrop of his exit, we can all agree that Diep City hasn’t been the same.
However, of interest is that in the wake of his Fistos character, the actor has starred in Rhythm City, Generations and Lock Out. The celebrated actor started his character with theatre plays like those before him. To furnish his craze of acting, he enrolled on Kasi theatre productions.
The 46-year old actor was born on 25 September 1975 in Kagiso, Gauteng Province, South Africa. It is a shocker to many that the celebrated actor is a jack of all trades and master of all.
