Isibaya actor Nkanyiso Mzimela, who plays Melusi Zungu, is adamant to break into the music scene despite the hatred he received for his debut freestyle back in July. The negative feedback did not deter the actor in pursuing his dreams of being a well-known musician as he has a few tricks up his sleeves.
He told TshisaLive that music is the biggest form of art he is serious about as he started making music a long time ago. Despite the lack of support when it comes to his music, he said he has something to offer the world.
I am a musician, I make music. People must be on the lookout for the two new singles I am about to drop, Off-Screen and In My Dreams. Music is a big part of my artistry, and as far as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a musician. Hopefully, people are not going to hate it, but even if they do I’ll pick up what I need to and leave what isn’t useful and take it from there,” he said.
Nkanyiso is determined to make it big in the industry by pushing his limits, as he has a few projects line up. He said his character, Melusi on the Mzansi Magic series has helped build his character outside the acting space.
On top of everything else I am doing, I would like people to get to know me as I am. I am working on personal projects that show who I am as a person, as Nkanyiso and not the characters I play on TV. I hope people receive me as I express myself fully.
“As an artist I have found myself in a position where I need to get out of my comfort zone and outdo myself. I need to strive to reach a part of myself that I have not reached before, to push my own limits. I have had to grow up. A lot of people never realise you need to step up and be present for yourself and that it has to be a choice you make consciously. Melusi has helped me, in a way, to do that,” he declared.
Nkanyiso released a 7-track back in August under the moniker “NIGHT$” and had received some pretty rave reviews on Twitter. He is set on releasing two new singles called Off Screen and In My Dreams and hopes the feedback will be more positive this time.
