In real life, Sandile Mfusi, the South African actor and rapper who plays Kwanda on Uzalo, is a millionaire. Sandile’s childhood ambition to succeed as a businessman and become a millionaire was unaffected by his life as an artist.
Sandile has previously appeared in telenovelas such as The Queen, The Black Door and Isibaya. In the soapie Uzalo, he plays Kwanda, a charming, handsome, and well-groomed young man who has his sights set on Nonka’s heart. Kwanda misled Nonka’s friend Hleziphi into believing he was after her while concealing his true intentions.
Hleziphi continued to interject herself into Kwanda’s plans with Nonka, making life difficult for her friend and the handsome charmer. Kwanda was immediately rejected after confessing his love for Nonka, and Nonka was torn between saving her friendship and following her heart.
Sandile rose to prominence after joining the hip-hop group Niche Fam. He is known in the music industry as Masandi. When he left the band in 2013, he embarked on a solo career and became a worldwide sensation. He’s since collaborated with Nigerian rappers Big Nuz, Gemini Major, Aewon Wolf, and Captain Blu, as well as American rappers Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and Trey Songz.
Kwanda, a Business Administration graduate, is an entrepreneur in real life; he is a formidable force in the LP gas retailing industry and owns a number of depots throughout KwaZulu Natal. Sandile makes more money selling industrial and domestic gas and accessories than he does from his music and acting. He is worth R35.8 million in 2022, and on Uzalo, he earns an estimated salary of R21 000.
