MBABANE - South African screens is about to be graced by a local face. This is because another Eswatini-born actor, Thando ‘Starring’ Mzamo, will be part of a TV commercial which is still being shot and will be broadcast on South African channels.

The advert, which will soon be appearing on TV, is for Shell, a global group of energy and petrochemical companies.
The commercial is in relation to  the upcoming Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns game, which is slated for October 12 at FNB Stadium in South Africa under the ABSA Premiership League.

The filming of the commercial is currently being done at Diepkloof in Soweto, Johannesburg.
Mzamo confirmed that he was currently among the people who would be appearing on the upcoming Shell advert.


Mzamo told the Entertainment Desk that he would appear wearing both the Kaizer Chiefs and Memolodi Sundowns jersey during the commercial as per the script which was given to him.

 Mzamo said he made the cut of being part of the commercial cast through the assistance of Becky Castings, an agency for models and actors based in South Africa.

“Beck Castings formed a partnership with the Eswatini National Council of Arts and Culture (ENCAC) to promote budding models and actors to showcase their talent outside Eswatini borders,” said Mzamo.
The actor said he was so happy to be part of the commercial.

“What humbles me the most is the fact that Kaizer Chiefs have been a team I have been supporting since my childhood days and thanks to ENCAC and Becky Castings for making me part of an advert of the one of the biggest soccer teams in South Africa.”

Appearing on ‘big’ screens is not new for Mzamo; he is in some scenes of international Netflix series titled ‘The Professionals’.
Also, Mzamo has made it a habit to motivate the Eswatini youth in theatre.
His last tour was about a month ago when he motivated actors from Siphila Nje Drama Society with Eswatini renowned actor and model Nolwazi ‘Snowee’Simelane.

ENCAC CEO Stanley Dlamini applauded Mzamo for his achievements.
“As a council which promotes growth in arts in the country we encourage people to come to our offices so we engage on how they can also be like ‘Starring’ and ‘Snowee’,”said Dlamini.
The ENCAC offices are at Coates Valley in Manzini.
