Tribute to GP-Maorange - one of Mzansi's greatest actor of all time

When we talk about the best actors in South Africa GP-Maorange has to be one of them. GP-MaOrange (born Israel Matseke Zulu) is a singer, dancer and poet from South Africa known for his role as GP in the SABC1 drama series 'Gaz'lam'. In 1997, he formed a theatre group called Abanqobi Drama Group. In 2016, he debuted on the Mzansi Magic soapie isiBaya playing the role of a gangster called Cyprian Gumbi.

He is a reformed gangster and has good acting skills. Zulu has starred in several movies including Tsotsi (2005), Dora's Peace (2016) and Hard to Get (2014), iNumber Number (2016), First Grader and No.1 Female Detective Agency among others.

Success sometimes must be dreamt and wished for before it comes. The actor has always wanted to be famous and always desired to change the lifestyle of his family. Having been born and raised in Alexandra, life was not always easy for him and his family. Poverty and the need to help fend for his family pushed him into a life of crime at an early age.

Today because of an illness this man is forced to exit the DSTV drama, Gomora. He is suffering from gangrene. Israel is having a hard time filming because of this illness.

Gangrene is death of body tissue due to a lack of blood flow or a serious bacterial infection. Gangrene can develop when the supply of blood to an area of your body is interrupted. This can occur as the result of an injury, an infection, or an underlying condition that affects your circulation.

• It is treatable by a medical professional

• Requires a medical diagnosis

• Lab tests or imaging often required

• Short-term: resolves within days to weeks

• Critical: needs emergency care

Gangrene is usually curable in the early stages with intravenous antibiotic treatment and debridement. Without treatment, gangrene may lead to a fatal infection.

Let us pray for this man. We still want to see him doing what he does best on our television screens.
