HUNGANI DRAWS STRONG CHARACTER FROM TV ROLE
ROMEO Medupe is a troublemaker on e.tv’s Scandal! The 25-year-old actor, whose real name is Hungani Ndlovu, told SunBuzz the character was about to get a little bit crazy. “I’m even confused how it will pan out. The shooting makes me watch myself more often because I’m interested in the growth of my character,” said Hungani, who has been playing Romeo for the past three years.
He said the character has helped him spread his wings. “In 2017 I released a single Follower. It didn’t do well because of a lack of marketing.”
Hungani runs an organisation called SANS Group in Newtown, Joburg. “SANS stands for Strong Attitudes Nurture Success. I started the organisation to help people understand what it takes to be in the entertainment industry,” he said.
Hungani said he will run a three-month acting course in April. “We’ll be teaching audition technique, showbiz, character building and scene study,” he said. “Character building will develop the role a person can portray truthfully while we identify the difference between the real you and character.”
