A dark cloud hung over in South Africa by the loss of a young and talented actor who had his whole life ahead of him but he has suddenly died.

After battling with illness for quite long, such a handsome thespian unfortunately lost the fight and death conquered him on Monday evening. The whole entertainment industry was mourning as fellow actors in the industry shared their message of condolences as they were so distraught and shaken.

Former Muvhango's actor, Luzuko Nteleko passed away on Monday and it was confirmed by his sister. His family also released a statement and revealed the cause of his death.

His sister, Nomsa Nteleko took to Twitter and wrote "How do we even begin Ndlovu...Dear God #RIPLuzukoNteleko."

Nteleko was first known acting on SABC 1 drama series, Zone 14 where he was playing the role of Loyiso.
