Former Generations: The Legacy actor Nyaniso Dzedze opens up about portraying the character of Nkosi in Skeem Saam.
Nyaniso Dzedze reveals to Sowetan that he wants his Skeem Saam character, Nkosi to inspire more young boys.

“I’ve done many roles on TV and most of them are as a bad guy than a good guy, so this role is going to be a refreshing experience,” he said.


“Nkosi will show viewers what it’s like to have a backbone and not be intimidated by Lehasa (played by Cedric Fourie).”

Dzedze adds that Skeem Saam viewers will get to see Lehasa account for his sins but not how people expect.

The publication reports that Dzedze is set to play the role of a “good-hearted” Nkosi, who is all about being morally correct.

Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela confirms that actor will make his debut on the SABC1 soapie on Monday, 12 February.


The publication reports that the former Durban Gen actor also portrays the role of Khumalo on Netflix’s series Soon Comes Night.

He stars alongside The Wife actor, Kwenzo Ngcobo, who portrays the character of a liberation hero turned heist king, Alex Shabane.

Dzedze add that Soon Comes Night was his first project with Netflix… which made it even more exciting for him. He feels he made his landmark with the role.

The Skeem Saam actor took to his Instagram account in 2022 to discuss his Durban Gen character Dr Dhlomo.

His character, who was abusive towards his wife, Sne (played by former Uzalo actress Nombulello Mhlongo) said playing the character was his real-life experience.

The star also revealed he wanted to quit the role and called his agent crying as his father abused his mother growing up.

“I read the scenes and I realised that this was pretty much a reflection of what my mother went through with my dad. My dad was the Dr Dhlomo of my mom’s life,” said Dzedze.”

“It was so difficult for me to face that part of my hurt, part of my own story that I hadn’t really told to myself.”
