Actor to say his goodbyes to the entertainment industry soon

After being within the acting industry for 30 years, Presley Chweneyagae has decided to abandon the art when he clocks in 40! Best known for his role in the 2005 hit film Tsotsi, Presley Chweneyagae has made a reputation for himself, playing in various productions which have made him a household name.

According to Daily Sun, the actor plans to retire not only from acting but wants to abandon the show business as an entire. His current role is on the hit Mzansi Magic telenovela The River and plays the character Cobra. But viewers should enjoy the actor for the remaining 3 years because when he’s 40 years old, he’s calling it quits.

“I’ll quit acting once I turn 40 and that I won’t be involved within the show business as I’ll specialize in a special work and environment,” he was quoted by the publication.

Presley continued by saying the acting industry is hard but actors should find it in their hearts – and pockets – to offer back to their communities whilst they still can. this is often to make opportunities for the children as they’re the longer term.

He too is a component of an initiative that provides back to communities and other people from impoverished areas. “My message to young actors is for them to stay strong because they’re during a challenging industry. they need to always remain calm, disciplined, and focused.“

When he won the Outstanding Actor award at the Black Movie Awards for his lead role on the film Tsoti, he said that moment made him very proud.

In September last year, Presley made headlines for allegedly beating up his wife. Daily Sun reported that the actor and his wife fought and therefore the altercation escalated drastically. This saw him allegedly being detained at the Pretoria North police headquarters on common assault charges.

“I left her after taking the keys. subsequent thing, I got a call from the police that a case has been opened against me. There was no assault on her or myself. I followed the relevant protocols by handing myself over to the police, with whom i’m co-operating (with),” he told the publication.

“GBV and femicide may be a big problem in our country. I take it very seriously and wouldn’t wish it on anyone, male or female. I even have previously been active on awareness of such issues and can still do so in my personal and business life .

“As husband and wife, we do have disagreements. quite anything, she is my wife and therefore the mother of my children, and that i have an excellent respect for her. it’s just unfortunate we discover ourselves during this situation,” he concluded.
