Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo
Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo's appearance on Rockville has proven that his acting career is gaining momentum despite the criticism.

Mohale was relatively unknown in Mzansi before he started dating and went on to marry Somizi. However, since then, Mohale has made moves to cement himself as an aspiring actor among many other things.

Taking to Instagram, Mohale bragged about his latest gig and expressed his joy at being part of the much-loved production. Mohale plays the role of Zamani, who is Sipho’s (played by comedian Trevor Gumbi) boyfriend.

“Meet Zamani made a young appearance on #RockVille5 this past Sunday, and the plot has definitely thickened. Adonis is definitely not happy with me and Sipho is definitely up to no good! Ei, Umjolo.

“Really enjoyed working among the greatest, @gail_mabalane @trevorgumbi @wisemanzither @tarinapatel. Thank you, @connie_ferguson @ferguson_films @sediimatsunyane. Catch #RockVille5 this coming Sunday at 8 PM on @mzansimagic,” he wrote.

In September last year Mohale responded to criticism he received after it was announced that he would be making a guest appearance on ’Rhythm City’. Twitter users questioned why Mohale would be getting an acting job over performing arts graduates who were more qualified. A debate ensued and while many defended his new gig, others lambasted it. “About the ’Rhythm City’ gig, people expect me to not do anything simply because I am married to a famous person.

 “I can’t blame myself for getting married to Somizi, and that now must not mean I shouldn’t pursue any opportunities simply because people are going to say that Somizi got them for me,” said Mohale. He said that those making comments on social media know nothing about how he got the gig. He also said that he auditioned for the role and was not alone in the audition as many have said. “My agent sent me an email and said myself and six others have been picked to audition, I recorded a self-tape and sent it,” he said.
