“In previous years, I struggled to come to terms with my struggle with depression and anxiety. I guess I was looking for guidance, a way to make it through tough times. Fitness changed my life. With therapy, church and family around me, a lot of the work had to come from you.There are two paths, either you go downhill or come back up,” Lehasa said.

“A lot of men have struggled and they end up taking their own lives. For me, it became that I wanted to share this thing that healed me and share it with other men. To push through the struggles and overcome them.I want to share with men that there’s a way that works and it doesn’t involve alcohol or violence. You can take control of your life,” Lehasa said.


Lehasa is showcasing his talent in a brand new Netflix film called The Vow, where he shares the screen with the incredible Tumi Morake, the talented Kenneth Nkosi, and the captivating Nqobile Nunu Khumalo.

“We shot this a long time ago in March 2021. That was a project done with an acquaintance of mine, Adze Ugah. He brought me on board and when they consulted with me, it was the height of actors not having work, Covid-19 times,” he said

“We were worried about where the next plan would be coming from. It was a nice return to acting after taking a break due to the pandemic. It was a good experience. We didn’t shoot for too long. It was a two-week long shoot. Most movies are shot between months and three years, that was super-fast. I think it was a nice show to be part of,” he said.

Lehasa humorously mentioned that he could definitely see himself in that particular aspect of the film. “That’s how relationships work. There’ll be issues and you work through them. I’m not completely unfamiliar with this. You don’t get there through love. I’ve been married for over 10 years, it’s not just through love. It’s about God’s grace and maturity. You get to a point where you guys are able to work through things together,” he continued.

Lehasa is currently working on two exciting projects: Nu Mustle, a brand, and a podcast, in collaboration with his wife. They’re definitely keeping busy! “Nu Mustle is a brand I’m trying to build to train people. I’m also transitioning it into more of a clothing brand called Athleisure wear and fitness clothes.With the podcast with my wife, we’ve become busy this year, but are working on it. We haven’t had much time to focus on it. It’s still in the works and will focus on many topics surrounding the institution of marriage,” he said.
