Uzalo actor Masoja Msiza (Nkunzi) bitten by dogs while selling steel wool.
Despite the fact that he was raised in a difficult home with few privileges, he has managed to make the best of his difficult upbringing and early hardship.
Actor and author Masoja Msizadoes visits schools to inspire children in addition to providing entertainment on television.
His upbringing has an impact on his inspirational speeches.
Masoja, who is known as the feared Nkunzi on, wants to instill optimism in the minds of young creatives.
“I don’t go around schools motivating kids just because I think they can’t think for themselves or their future, but I’m doing this to add on the positives that they dream about and want to achieve for themselves.
“What I’m trying to tell them is that they can be anything. They can be big and celebrated like me no matter what their background is. They mustn’t look down on themselves,” said Masoja.
The 57-year-old actor said his upbringing in KwaThema, a neighborhood in Johannesburg, was difficult and unpleasant.
He claimed that he has previously sold steel wool door to door. However, he was sadly bit by dogs.
“I have wounds of dogs bites. But every time I look at these wounds, I’m reminded of my long journey. I use them to motivate kids. And they pay attention when I speak to them,” said Masoja.
