He is by far one of the most talented young actors on South African TV at the moment.
And considering that today, 4 March, is his birthday it's only right we celebrate his day and acknowledge what a great actor Sdumo Mtshali is.
He's had numerous roles on the small screen as well as the big screen. When he first appeared on Isibaya we couldn't help but sit upright and acknowledge the amount of talent Sdumo has, his relationship with his on-screen ex-wife, Thandeka, played by Nomzamo Mbatha, has always been a beautiful relationship to watch.
To be honest, there was a point where we secretly wished they actually dated in real life and when they divorced, it felt like all the fans of Isibaya were going through a divorce as well, heartbreaking!
It's not only his performance on Isibaya that has made us continue to respect his work as an actor. When he began acting on iSthunzi, the respect became even greater.
Sdumo was able to evoke so many emotions from the other side of the screen, especially when he attempted to rape Winnie, played by Thuso Mbedu, we really disliked him throughout that entire first season of iSthunzi.
It's impressive how Sdumo is just able to switch up from being a good guy on Isibaya to being a bad boy on iSthunzi, oh and not forgetting a very sexy detective on his first film iNumber iNumber
We can't wait to see what more Sdumo has to offer in 2017, a lot of "actors" in this industry but there aren't a lot of true thespians who are completely dedicated to the craft like Sdumo Mtshali.
