He has been trending of late. Bubbly actress Banele “Moghelingz” Ndaba is making all sorts of headlines with his on-screen role on the SABC drama series Uzalo. We can all agree that he is that star actress we all love to hate. He has been winning big of late with her on-screen character on Uzalo. The TikTok sensation Banele “Moghelingz” Ndaba joined the drama series in a cameo role.
He is helping Madlala (played by Ntombifuthi Dlamini) and MaDongwe (played by Zama Mugubane) with their act. Speaking to Drum Magazine, Moghelingz said that he had always wanted to see himself on the big screen, so when he got the call to be part of the talent show, he knew he was headed in the right direction.
Moghelingz revealed that he received unconditional love when he joined the set. He has it that when he met the cast and crew, he did not expect they’d be friendly and welcoming, but they humbled him.
“These are the people I used to watch on TV, and [they] are praising me so much. It was such a humbling experience for me, honestly.”
Landing the role, Moghelingz said it was such a big thing for him because he has always wanted to be on TV.
“It is such a big thing for me. I have always wanted to be on big screens. When I landed the role, I was like to myself, ‘OMG, you are doing so good, and you are just on the right track this is one of my huge achievements,” he told Drum.
Moghelingz said he wished he had received a more challenging role, but he says he had fun playing himself and enjoyed the energy. The 20-year-old says the difference between shooting his TikTok content and being on the set of Uzalo is that it takes a lot of time for the Uzalo scenes to be shot.
“I don’t spend more than an hour to shoot my content so what makes it different is that on set you have to be there in the early hours at around 4/6 am and you have to know what you are shooting which can take hours just to shoot like a two minutes scene on screen,” Moghelingz said.
