The actor plays a doctor on SABC2 soapie 7de Laan and will soon return to Skeem Saam, a show he regards as his home.
The 30-year-old said he took the opportunity with both hands as he couldn’t turn the offer of a show that brought him recognition.
Nkuna spoke to Daily Sun about his new role with Skeem Saam, “I’ve been asked to return as the writers have written a new storyline for me. I couldn’t turn them down because the show gave me exposure when I started my career.”
Nkuna said he has already started shooting with Skeem Saam and he will also keep his role on another soapie 7de Laan as the shows are shot at the same location.
He will start appearing on the screens next month and he hopes people still remember him from the days they fell in love with his character.

“I hope the viewers will show Sakhile the same love they did years ago. I know I’ve been away for a while, but I hope they will still remember the dark and handsome man they fell in love with,” Nicholas said.
