Many Generations The Legacy fans were excited to see South African actor Tumelo Matlala on Durban Gen after a few years of being offscreen. The actor, who is also a known gospel artist in Mzansi, just joined the show playing the role of Dr Skhumbuzo Khumalo and is ready to take the medical series by storm. Tumelo Matlala had fans ask about his age and grow interested in who the new doctor in town is in real life.
The actor joined the show for the extended second season of the show when the series jumped to five years later after Dr Dhlomo died. The actor is a doctor that joined the hospital four years prior and has Dr Dhlamini rooting for him to be appointed Head of Surgery.
This is because Dhlamini does not want to establish Dr Zondo, his wife, to avoid people accusing him of nepotism.
Tumelo was born on the 10th of August in 1991, making him 31 years of age as of this year. The actor is younger than many Durban Gen viewers may have assumed, and his looks make him perfect for taking on more mature roles than his actual age.
He played the role of detective Robert in generations the legacy back in 2019.
The actor is most active in the music industry, where he works as a gospel musician and has released two albums in his career. The first one he released in 2017 was called from a heart of a man to God, and the other one is Blessed Generation.
