Get to know Buhle from Imbewu & her twin sister
Vuyokazi Tshona is an actress best known for her role as Buhle on Imbewu.Vuyokazi was born on August 27, 1992, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.Vuyokazi is Vuyelwa’s twin sister.
Vuyokazi’s twin sister is also an actor, having recently returned from a stint as an actress and vocalist for the Disney Lion King in Manila.
Vuyo’s life is well planned as she sets her eyes on becoming a professional. The stars however have more in store for her. As destiny reveals itself, she finds herself in the entertainment industry. Quickly becoming one of Mzansi’s sweethearts, Vuyo keeps aiming for the stars.
The two sisters grew up together, but only one had an interest in acting, and that was Vuyelwa. Vuyelwa studied cinema at Tshwane University of Technology, while Vuyokazi studied agriculture.
Vuyelwa would go to auditions when the two had finished their studies, and Vuyokazi would join her. She had always wanted her sister to pursue a career in the arts, and she was able to encourage her to audition. Vuyokazi got her first acting part in Uzalo this way.
Vuyelwa is a successful actress in her rights. She has travelled the world as a singer and actress for Disney’s Lion King International tour. Vuyelwa has toured in countries like the Philippines, Mexico, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan and New Zealand. She also doubles up as a musician. Together with her twin sister and the Khuzwayo twins, they recently dropped a song called Isidwaba that they have been marketing on their Instagram accounts for some time now.
“I could sing, but I never thought I could perform as an actor. As I got into it, I realised that I could actually do it. I then enrolled at the Joburg Theatre to learn more,” she shares. “Church was a social place for me. I grew up in church. I started singing at church and I got my first role because I could sing,” she adds.
Her twin is Vuyo’s inspiration and the reason she has a knack for the arts. At 25 years of age, Vuyelwa returns from Manila, Philippines where she was also an actress and singer for Disney’s Lion King international tour.
Vuyokazi rose to prominence when she was cast as a member of Uzalo, and she was cast due of her lovely voice. She went on to play Zodidi Ndamase in Ingozi. In Imbewu-The Seed, she played Buhle, the spoiled last child of the Bhengu family.
