The roar of Simba the lion in Walt Disney’s “The Lion King”
Born 16 November 1973; a typical Scorpio – dynamic, driven, motivated and slightly mysterious.
 
He speaks All South African languages and English like a Lord!
 
One of South Africa’s most industrious personalities, Fezile is renowned as both a Screen and Stage Actor. He has starred in more dramas and daily soaps than any other South African actor, including  Soul City,  Generations,  Sewende laan,  Song vir for Katryn, Molofish, Isidingo, Mzansi, Friends indeed, The Hidden City, Kelebone, Sleurstroom,  Secret in my Bosom and more. 
 
He was the South African presenter of the BBBC show “Ready Steady Cook” which received rave reviews.  Previous presenting jobs include  the popular home ownership show “On Site” on TV2. the MNet Book Awards,  the “Rock Down Africa music show,” The All Africa Film Awards, the SAMAS and the Loerie Awards. He’s a speaker on HIV/AIDS and hosted the 2005 Khomanani HIV/ AIDS Day, anchoring a five hour television show and proving his ability to relate to people across all barriers. His love of  the stage has him returning at least once a year to perform in  live theatre.
 
Fezile  hosted the 2005 Khomanani Day – caring together for life, the government partnership against HIV/AIDS, anchoring a five hour show and proving his ability to relate to people across all barriers. 
 
He was also the MC and keynote speaker for the Matzikama HIV & AIDS Initiative on World Aids day in 2005. He visited communities and schools in the Vredendal area, one of the most severely affected by HIV/AIDS, and delivered a personal message that evening to over 1200 people.  
 
“It was a rare privilege working with Fezile on our World HIV/AIDS day. He was mobbed by fans for autographs and it was a bit scary at times, but he was so patient, so warm, so approachable and absolutely charming. His talk in the evening, giving a personal account of the effect of HIV/AIDS on the family, when his sister and brother-in-law died of AIDS, had the crowd of over 1200 riveted. It had the desired  effect. I am sure our communities totally get the message now – if a celebrity like the Fez is personally affected by this pandemic, anyone can be. From myself and the team, thank you so much for all the work and the awesome script.”
