The unexpected death of Mlungisi, portrayed by Nkanyiso Mchunu in “Umkhokha: The Curse,” shocked viewers when he tragically took his own life by jumping off a building after a night of partying with his brothers, Khulekani and Siphamandla.
In a recent episode, Mvelase’s portrait fell from the wall, foreshadowing a dark cloud over the family just before Mlungisi and his wife Nokubonga could announce their pregnancy.
Despite initially being a villain, Mkhululi’s character underwent a transformation in recent episodes. He started showing kindness, interacted civilly with the family, and quit drinking.
Just as viewers were beginning to warm up to the new Mkhululi, his untimely suicide shocked everyone.
As fans mourned his character’s demise, they also took the opportunity to praise the actor behind the role, Nkanyiso Mchunu.
The talented actor gave a compelling portrayal, capturing the essence of the character flawlessly.
Even his peers in the industry couldn’t help but admire Nkanyiso’s performance.
Veteran actor Mondli Mkhoba recently commended Nkanyiso, recalling how he first saw him in “Muvhango” before working with him in “Imbewu.” Mondli expressed his pride in Nkanyiso and how he has excelled in his role as Mkhululi.
“Macingwane, I first saw you on Muvhango. I worked with you on Imbewu. I remember the conversations we had about waiting for the right time and opportunity, and how one should genuinely prepare for their moment.
Today, I took the time to watch Umkhokha. The Mkhululi character is spot on. You are nailing that role, sir, and I am genuinely happy for you.
