Sipho Ngwenya speaks on Mzansi Magic's success, personal development

South African musician and actor, Sipho Ngwenya, says the past four years have all been about self development.

Ngwenya is best known for his role as Ajax on the SABC1 soap opera, Generations, from 2006-2010.

He currently works as the M-Net's commissioning editor on Mzansi Magic.

Ngwenya says he moved to M-Net because he is creative and can appreciate the content of their show.

People wanted different content. The viewers that we have now are more opinionated. Because of social media they are aware of what is happening in the world. So we had to give them content that is more challenging, compelling and thought-provoking.
