Musa Ngema is a South African actor and motivational speaker best known for his portrayal of Mazwi Moroka on the longstanding SABC 1 soapie, Generations: The Legacy.
Quiet and shy, he believes living the life of his flashy on-screen character would send a wrong message about his true self. Durban-born Ngema, a reserved, polished man, is indeed totally different from Mazwi who tends to be arrogant as he thinks he’s smarter than other people.
The star is not an outgoing person, and prefers to rather relax and read a book. Ngema admits that having two powerful women in his life – his mother and girlfriend of 13 years – has kept him grounded and focused.
He has also acting in theatre productions including Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Animal Farm, The Giving Tree, Othello and The Crucible.
Ngema studied drama at the Durban University of Technology.
He has had a few roles on 7de Laan and Rhythm City before joining Generations: The Legacy. He has also played Othello in Shakespeare’s Othello, multiple roles in both The Crucible and Animal Farm and the prince in Cinderella.
He joined Generations in 2014 along with Rapulana Seipheo, Connie Ferguson, Manaka Ranaka, Ronnie Nyakale, Thulisile Phongolo and Moopi Mothibeli after the producers of that show dismissed the entire cast over a prolonged wage dispute.
Musa Ngema had also protrayed the character of Lindile on 7de Laan and Norton on Rhythm City.
