Mohale, best known for enjoying the role of Odirile on MTV’s Shuga, has joined the cast of Mzansi Magic drama series Rockville as Zamani.

He said: “I was over the moon once I was told I got the role as I even have been dreaming of being a part of a production as big as this.”

The 26-year-old, who’s married to Somizi Mhlongo, described Zamani as smart and calculating.

“He’s an accountant who’s right down to earth and does everything with caution.

Zamani loves his boyfriend wholeheartedly, which can cost him,” he said.

The rising star told the People’s Paper he enjoyed breathing life into the storyline.

“Although sometimes it had been challenging, the role gave me a perspective on what happens within the world. Overall, people are getting to love Zamani,” he said.

Mohale said as a shirtlifter he was happy playing a personality that identified as queer.

“I think it’s important to cast queer people for queer roles and it’s a conversation we’d like to possess ,” he said.

“I never understood the concept of casting a second banana for a gay role when there are numerous queer people that can execute the role well.”

“My acting skills became better and I’ve learnt to know the tv industry better. Going forward, I still want to try to to more acting, but due to business and other interests, I don’t get time to attend auditions the maximum amount as I’d wish to ,” he said.

Asked about divorce rumours, Mohale laughed and said they weren’t true.

“I don’t know what everyone’s talking about. It’s always news to me once I examine of these allegations.
