Bheki Mkhwane was born in Durban. He is a South African actor, director, producer and playwright. He is popularly known for his role as Samson, the head of the Ndlovu clan in the Mzansi Magic telenovela-turned-soap-opera isiBaya.
He began his career in acting in the theatre and says that he always refused TV roles as he felt the shows were not a true reflection of the lives of South Africans.
One of the Isibaya’s producers was telling him about the show and he commented that he liked the storyline. He was approached by Angus Gibson (director of Isibaya) to be one of the leads and he decided to take the role as the storyline was a true reflection of the society.
