Gomora viewers are puzzled by TV personality Moshe Ndiki’s character and storyline, who joined the popular telenovela this season as Mr Faku. He plays Gladys Dlamini’s family friend and a struggling educator at Gomora High.
‘MR FAKU IS BORING’
Viewers of the popular telenovela Gomora took to social media this week to troll Mr Faku’s personality and storyline. Fans also demand to know how the actor scored the role as ‘he can’t act’ while some fans revealed that the actor probably got the role because of his huge social media following.
The actor made headlines last season for dragging Melusi (Zolis Xaluva), Gladys (Thembi Seete), and Thati’s (Katlego Danke) love triangle storyline on social media and admitted he’s a huge fan of the show and was even invited on set.
The actor-presenter portrays Andile Faku a teacher whose life has been ruined by the ugly habit of gambling.
He lost his lavish Sandton life and his cushy private school job because of the habit, landing him at Gomora High, and thinks his new gig is beneath him, according to Sowetan.
Viewers have also criticised Ndiki’s humour and feel that he’s overdoing it as his style of acting doesn’t fit the telenovela.
