King Kong is a hit production of the popular Cape Town's Fugard Theatre which is currently playing until February 18, 2018.

Dube will be playing the central role of Pop, a role previously played by Sne Dladla, and will appear on stage from January 2.

Speaking to John Maytham Dube says he is looking forward to step in a role that he believes Sne Dladla executed very well and he is intending to make it his own.

I think the key is just to make the role your own.

It doesn't necessarily pay today's bills but there is a happiness that comes with being on stage - we work for applause to be honest...
