Masilela was a South African singer, actor, and former soccer player best known for his role in the e.tv soap opera Rhythm City as street kid Sifiso Ngema. His first appearance was in January 2013.
After a vehicle accident put an end to his professional soccer career with SuperSport United, he entered the eighth season of M-singing Net's competition Idols in 2012 after more than three years of recuperation.
Even though he had no prior acting experience, he made it to the show's Top 18 and was then contacted by Rhythm City to audition for the role of Sifiso.
Dumi was shot dead on Thursday, 3 August 2017, in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni, after he was kidnapped on Wednesday night. The most difficult part has to have been the burial, for the couple's entire family, but particularly for the wife. She finally acknowledged the truth about his death: that he had passed away.
