The 45-year-old singer is set to make his television debut on SABC1’s soapie Skeem Saam from the 19th July 2018.

He will play the role of Setati, a client of motor mechanic Big Boy Mabitsela (Charles Maja). He later finds out that Mabitsela replaced the new parts of his car with old ones.

Mphoza told Sunday World: “I couldn’t believe my ears when I received a call from Mahuma Paul Rapetsoa that I got that Skeem Saam role. I kept on telling him that I was not in the mood for his funny jokes. But it finally sunk in when he repeatedly told me that I need to come to his offices and sign a contract.”
