Masoja Josiah Msiza fails to break the divorce cycle.
Life is what happens when you are busy making plans. The Uzalo actor grows up in a dysfunctional family and barely sees his father as his parents are divorced. Growing up in such gruesome circumstances, Msiza is determined to do better for his children all to no avail. Life sees him drifting from his children’s lives following a separation with his wife.
“I really miss my kids and all of those close to me……my siblings and I were raised by relatives. I would see them at Christmas time. Wanted the cycle to end with me. I have suffered and thought it would end with me but I didn’t think it would happen to my children‚ that I would go through a series of divorces. It was beyond my control.”
Masoja Josiah Msiza on his role in Uzalo.
The actor plays the role of Nkunzi on Uzalo and although he plays the bad guy, he sees it as another art form. “A way to give hope,” he says. “It is not about me. It is about telling a story with my craft. Sometimes you have to wait for the right role‚ a role that may make you relatable to people‚ and I had to wait for this one. It has been an honour playing it so far,” Msiza adds.
Is Nkunzi rubbing off on Masoja?
If Nkunzi were to pull off a money heist fiasco nobody would be surprised but Masoja? The popular actor finds himself caught up in a money scandal as he cons promoters of R18 000. Masoja together with two other actors are approached by event organisers Esona Masele and Zukisa Robiyane. The actor charges R20 000 as an appearance fee at an event and after his dues are paid, he does not show up.
