Sizwe Dhlomo revealed this week that he turned down an opportunity to add 'actor' in his list of talents.

The media personality missed out on being a soap opera star as he was approached to play one of the most loved characters in Rhythm City.

Answering a followers question as to whether or not he considers acting, he revealed how he turned down the character Sbu Vilakazi on the popular soapie 13 years ago.

The character was played by Lungile Radu, but Sizwe says it was originally written for him and he did not audition for it.

At first he mistakenly said he was approached to play Suffocate Ndlovu but followers couldn't seem to imagine him playing such a hardcore character saying he wouldn't have nailed it.

"You know the role on the e.tv soapie from about twelve years ago? Character name Suffocate? That role was written for me but when the director approached me, I told him acting wasn’t my thing. True story," he then corrected himself by saying he meant Sbu, and not Suffocate.”
