Today is Uzalo actor Nay Maps’s birthday and to play our part in service delivery as we so often do oh so diligently – we are serving you some five facts that will help you get to know the crooner. Pay attention!

His real full name is Naymaps Maphalala.

He shot to fame as part of a killer cast on leading SABC 1 telenovela Uzalo, where he plays the part of a certain Mxolisi Xulu, one of two sons who accidentally got swapped at birth. Imagine that headache. But then again, it is such gritting plot twist that have helped the show maintain such a pull with viewers.

He was initially enrolled for an IT Degree at the University Of Pretoria before striking it big with his first break on Uzalo. The television show once toppled Generations The Legacy as the highest rated show on SABC 1, which hasn’t happened since Simunye One Time days.

Besides acting, presenting and dressing to kill, Maphalala is also a pianist for a gospel group called Spax and Newlight.
