Many people were taken aback by Eric Macheru's sudden rise to prominence. Prior to his on-screen prominence, the acclaimed star actor was a footballer.

Unfortunately, he was not just any footballer, but a football genius who made headlines for his prowess on the field. Eric Macheru was a member of the Ajax Cape Town dream team, which made headlines for its young potential during the 2004-2005 season.

In the midst of it all, his promising career was cut short by a career-threatening injury that forced him to hang up his cleats. After retiring from football, he pursued his passion for acting by earning an acting degree from AFDA. According to recent sources, he is furthering his education.

Skeem Saam has offered him an acting role as a result of his sudden celebrity. Leeto, the eldest son of Meikie and John Maputla, was played by the cheerful actor in Skeem Saam.
