Luzuko Before The Fame

The late star who’s originally from Gauteng, who owned an education/industrial theatre and promotions company, was fluent in isiZulu, isiXhosa, Xitsonga, Sesotho and English.

In one of his very few interviews that are available on the internet, chatting to eNCA – the actor opened up about his humbling first job, how he lost thousands of rands and financial advice.

“The first job that I had to do was promotions, so I used to stand on the streets, on the robots and hand out flyers. I used to get R25 per hour.” He shared and opened up about how he lost a lot of money in his life.

“I hope what I’m about to say will teach people something. I’ve spent a lot of money on trading. I used to be a trader. And I lost a lot of money on it. I believe that it was an easy way to make money. Not knowing that there are a lot of scams and people out there who are taking advantage of people. I think I lost about sixty-something thousand on trading.”

He left the viewers with valuable money advice. “You must love money but you must never worship money.” He added. “The reason why they say money is evil is because of what people do to get money. Do you know what I’m saying? I’m just saying that people must love money and if you love something, chances are that you will get it.” Said the star.
