Meet Mukwevho from Muvhango, in real life

We often forget that the actors we see on screen are real people with lives that are different from the characters they play. Many elderly people who don’t understand TV dramas dislike actors because of the roles they play. However, let’s get to know the actor who portrays Vho-Phusuphusu Mukwevho on Muvhango.





Jacky Nethomboni is a well-known figure in the world of reggae music. He has been performing for around 30 years, and his latest album, ‘Dzilafho la Mutsiko’ (Depression Remedy), is a hit. He put a lot of effort into making it one of the best in the competitive music industry.

On screen, he plays the role of a troublemaker – the Chief’s uncle – who is always opposed to the plans of other elders. But in real life, he is a helpful and supportive person. He is involved in several projects aimed at nurturing the talents of young musicians.

Aside from his music career, Nethomboni was also a schoolteacher. It’s worth noting that other cast members on Muvhango, such as Vho-Masindi and Vho-Mukondeleli, were also teachers. This suggests that the actors have been exposed to various aspects of life that may have influenced their roles on the show.

Jacky Nethomboni is a multi-talented artist who has dedicated his life to music and helping young musicians. He plays the role of a troublemaker on Muvhango, but in real life, he is a supportive and helpful person. It’s important to remember that the characters we see on screen are not real, but the people who play them are real and often have fascinating lives beyond what we see on screen.
