The multi-gifted Sbu from Uzalo in real life.

Simphiwe Majozi is one of the South African TV stars of the SABC 1 soapie, Uzalo. His acting role has stolen the hearts of many South Africans, he is loved by many. He plays a role of being the most entertaining character who is able to move from one emotion/character to another; he is seen as a very talented actor from Uzalo. Simphiwe plays the role of hijacking cars and participating in other criminal activities to make a living and on the other hand he is the beloved boyfriend of Fikile whose real name is Nelisa Mchunu.

Simphiwe's life on Uzalo has no sense of direction but in real life he is a man that knows what he wants and he is very organised. He was born and raised in Mtwalume (near Port Shepstone in Kwazulu Natal's South Coast). His parents have 10 children and he is the last born of the ten, indeed he comes from a very huge family. He is the younger brother of Mxolisi Majozi who mentors him and is the manager of Grammy Award winning group, Lady Smith Black Mambazo.Like many children, Simphiwe does not have parents. His parents passed on whilst he was still in primary school but that has never stopped him from soaring to the top, going beyond limit and achieving his goals. He is a marketing management graduate from the Universal College Outcomes in Pietermaritzburg. Few months after he had completed his studies, Simphiwe made his first debut on the SABC 1 soapie, Uzalo. He was only supposed to appear once on scene but the Uzalo producers and directors saw the great talent within him and therefore, they created a permanent role for him.

Mzansi fell in love with Simphiwe for the first time they saw him on the screen, you'd swear that if he wasn't created a role for they would have pleaded for him to come back again. He is the reason so many people watch the show and are glued to the screens when Uzalo is playing. The amazing actor who used public transport had to untimely buy a car because his fans made it very hard for him to get to work on time because of wanting to talk to him and take pictures with him.

Simphiwe is not only an actor but he is also a musician. He says his love for acting and music was birthed at church as he was involved in plays and singing. His late father was a pastor, so Simphiwe and his siblings were raised in church.

Whilst people took the Covid-19 Lockdown as a time for resting and lazing around, Simphiwe saw an opportunity to go out of the nutshell and expose his hidden talent. He says he has been longing to launch his music career for so many years but he was afraid that people would not see his talent but they would judge him and say he is taking chances and advantage because he is a TV star. Nonetheless, the TV wrote a song and released it during the first South African Lockdown and he received a positive response from the public. The title of the song is "Nizobona Ngomophu" which is a Zulu proverb which means you shall reap what you sow. He says he wrote this song because when awareness was raised about Covid-19, the rules and regulations of the pandemic were released but people were not adhering to them so he is telling them that they shall reap what they sow through his song.

Last but not least, Simphiwe Majozi is not a single man but he is in a beautiful relationship with a lady named Kekeletso Mahlelebe who is a Elundini local municipality DA councillor. The two are very private about their relationship as much is not known about it but the least that is known is that they met in high school and they have been together for 13 years now.
