Does Simphiwe Majozi have a car?
The actor is in no rush to buy wheels for himself as he is now a celebrity, but he does so to keep his job. Majozi enjoys the taxi queues and taking public transport, and the problem then arises in the time it takes for one to get to work. A journey meant to last 10 minutes takes almost an hour when taking public transport, so Majozi was always late for work.
“Soon after I joined Uzalo‚ I had to make some lifestyle changes. ‚ at that time, I didn’t have a car, so I took taxis to work. Taking the taxis started to become a hassle‚ with so many people putting me under pressure‚ you know, asking questions and asking for pictures. It was not wrong in any way, and I couldn’t even blame them…”

The song titled “Nizobona Ngomophu (You will reap what you sow)” receives positive public feedback, pushing the actor to work on his debut album. “Covid-19 starts, and we are told many times to wear masks and stop moving around, but people never took that seriously. The song encourages the public to act responsibly because Covid-19 is serious. I have always wanted to release my music, but I could not because people think you are taking chances when you are a TV star. They don’t think you are talented. Music has always been part of my life, and I started singing while I was doing theatre,” he says.
