HEART-THROB actor and musician Anga “NaakMusiq” Makhubalo has found himself a new home in the industry.
Sunday Sun has been told the actor, who currently stars as Bantu in the hot new Mzansi Magic drama, Igazi, is set to join Isidingo.
Anga was part of the 16 Generations actors who were fired two years ago.
Sources at the SABC3 soapie said Anga got an offer he couldn’t resist.
A source told Sunday Sun: “Money talks, he’s definitely getting a bigger cheque. He’s worth it after all. I know he has signed the contract, I’m not sure whether he’s started shooting or not.”
The source said Anga was headhunted by theIsidingo team to increase viewership.
The source said Anga is a big brand and will bring in a younger audience, because of his successful music career.
Anga is signed under Afrotainment as an artist.
The source said: “They know Anga has a following. He’s liked by both young and old, and has many female fans. So he’ll helpIsidingo through his brand.”
The source added that after Anga’s departure from Generations, he looked for many jobs and also focused on his music career.
“He pursued his music career and that boosted his profile as an entertainer.”
Isidingo’s production co-ordinator Malebo Mokoena refused to comment.
Anga said: “Yes, I’ve joined Isidingo. I started shooting on 1 April. I’ll play a young troubled man, Obakeng. He was raised by his dad as his mum had him when she was young, so she gave him up. He runs away as his dad can’t handle him. He hustles and will do anything to fend for himself.”
