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.
Nteleko was first known acting on SABC 1 drama series, Zone 14 where he was playing the role of Loyiso.
Tembisa Mdoda Nxumalo was the first artist to share the devastating news of the sad passing of Luzuko. She took to social media and wrote "Luzuko had a long career as an actor. Each day we lose one of us. Each day. He has taken a special part of art with him. Only few will understand."
It has been revealed that Luzoko succumbed to his illness after battling with cancer for quite long.
Last year, this thespian took to social media and thanked God for healing him when he was suffering of brain cancer. This came after Nomsa has shared that Luzuko was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer.
“The doctors had given up on the possibility of him waking up from a coma … He spent seven weeks in ICU,” she said.
Social media has been filled with messages of support towards his family as friends and industry friends expressed condolences to the Nteleko family and paid condolences to the star.
Isibaya actor who use to play with him on Zone 14, Andile Mxakaza wrote " Lala ngoxolo mfanakithi, mhlaba awunoni."
