We are joined in Studio by Muvhango’s very own Chief of Thathe, Gabriel Temudzani. Since joining the show 18 years ago back in 2000, he has become one of the most loved characters on the show.
Gabriel was born in Venda, Limpopo, and grew around Tshivhilindulu in Nzhelele area. This was where he discovered his passion for farming, he has studied agriculture and inherited a farm from his father, where he now produces his own products. His passion for acting though, started when one of his high school teachers got him into drama classes. When he left Limpopo for Gauteng, he realised that he had to learn english, as he was experiencing a rather large language barrier.
His passion for acting has led to him becoming one of the most recognisable faces in South Africa. His career began in 1995, and five years later he found himself as the attention grabbing Vhafuwi Azwindini. He is not only an accomplished television actor but he has also starred in a number of theatre and film roles, such as when he won a Vita award for his work on the theatre production ‘The Dog and The Night of Horror’. His film roles include ‘A diamond and destiny’ in 2003, and 2009’s ‘Night Drive,’ among many others.
