Hamilton Dlamini encourages youngsters to tell real South African stories

Veteran actor Hamilton Dlamini says he visits shebeen and the townships to polish his craft.

Speaking to Azania Mosaka on the Friday profile, Dlamini says actors must not take on roles that portray the glossy lifestyle they see in Rosebank and Sandton.

He says people want relatable content.

There are characters in shebeens.

Hamilton Dlamini, Actor

I want to encourage young stars, it doesn't have to take a shortcut. They must just watch people in the township and make sure they tell the right stories.

Hamilton Dlamini, Actor

I also want to be entertained and watch my people through other actors. They must do justice to storytelling.
