As a young boy growing up in Soweto, Menzi became hooked on American courtroom dramas. These so inspired the young Menzi that he decided at an early age that he would pursue a legal career after completing school. However, his natural talent for entertaining people and an inherent understanding of drama took his career in a totally different direction.
Having made a name for himself in Kwakhala Nyonini, he joined the cast of Street Sisters, a celebratory musical which toured Europe in 1990 to critical acclaim. Cast as the bad guy in Ubambo Lwami, Menzi became something of a folk hero and everyone's favorite bad boy. The success of the series was such that Menzi was unable to leave home without being mobbed by adoring fans.
Menzi was most recently seen on television screens in Gaz'lam.
