Presenter and actor Siv Ngesi is once again making headlines and this time, it is for something Mzansi had never seen coming! Siv has on countless occasions received rave reviews for his acting skills and it looks like he will be wowing Mzansi and the world very soon.

Taking to his Twitter, entertainment news and blogger Phil Mphela just recently broke the news that Siv has landed an acting role on The Woman King where he will be starring as a supporting the cast.

The news has been received with great excitement from fans, especially because the film stars acclaimed American actor Viola Davis as the lead actress. Mzansi is happy to see that our film industry is once again being placed on the map, and we couldn’t be more excited for the premier that will be happening this coming September.

Siv is not the first SA actor to land the acting gig alongside Viola Davis with actors like Thuso Mbedu and Zozi bagging the gig not too long ago. At this point, fans are saying that the film should just be made a pure SA production altogether now that most actors will be from Mzansi.

It does make sense that they would choose African actors especially because the film’s storyline is set to tell the stories of women warriors in Africa. There is no denying that fans are excited to see that they will be seeing many of their fave Zalebs featured in the film.

All in all, fans are pretty excited for Siv saying that they cannot wait to see what role he will be playing in the film. The actor who has been away from the screens for quite some time now, recently lost his cousin to COVID 19.

He took to Twitter to share the sad news with his fans and followers alike and it is evident that the news took a huge toll on him. Fans did not delay to send him all their love and strength following his loss.

It was also during this time that Siv had introduced his drag queen alter ego, Sivanna, who as you can already imagine was not exactly Mzansi’s favorite. This is especially after Sivanna had landed major modelling gigs that many claimed was unfair seeing that there are other may drag queens who were more worthy of the opportunities.
