Actor and musician Anga Makubalo, joins us for this edition of the cook-along. He is one of the most recognised faces in South African media, whether it be acting on our screens or performing alongside the likes of DJ Tira as “NaakMusiq”, Anga has surely made a name for himself.
South Africa first noticed him when he joined the cast of Generations, as MJ, until his departure from the show in 2014, as part of the 16 actors who left the show. He continued to shine after he left the show, as he started to pursue a music career, signing to DJ Tira’s record label Afrotainment, first featuring on DJ Fisherman’s chart topping ‘Call Out’. This was the start to a successful music career, leading to large collaborations with renowned and established artists such as, DJ Tira, Bucie, Heavy K, and many more.
A thriving music career never changed his mind of wanting to appear on television as an actor and personality. He has gone on to star in leading roles hit shows such as Igazi, SABC 3’s long running Isidingo, and Z’bondiwe. During this time he became the first actor to play lead roles and 3 different networks, with 3 primetime shows at the same time. 2017 also saw him become the winner of Tropika Island of Treasure Maldives.
