I ran away from home to pursue acting career – Uzalo actor Thabo Mnguni aka Mbatha opens up
His dad didn’t care for it when Thabo took to acting, trusting it was related with legislative issues and his child may pass on.

He went gaga for going about as a kid when the cast of Asinamali, composed and coordinated by Mbongeni Ngema, were practicing in Lamontville. “I cherished their vitality and how they handled issues in our locale.”
He said from that point forward, he began watching plays around eThekwini until Tiki Nxumalo made him the lead entertainer of Abasheli at the Playhouse Company.
“I turned into an in-house on-screen character. I played in shows, for example, Jimbo and Taxi Jam,” he said.
Thabo is a very much voyage entertainer. He has been to Europe and America in the melodic Isikhulu, where he hobnobbed with on-screen characters, for example, Peter Mashigo and Mfana Hlophe.

Thabo runs Amanguni Productions and Services. He works intimately with the KZN government. He as of late worked with the chief’s office on the creation of a social assistance about tormenting and torment of educators. His fantasy is to see youthful ability in acting, who are not very large for their shoes. “The life expectancy of an entertainer is excessively short. I’m fortunate that I despite everything do what I like,” he said.
