Glamour: How would you describe your personality?

Lungelo: I'm extroverted. I always aim to keep those around me as happy as I am.

Glamour: When did the acting bug bite you?

Glamour: How does Jabu handle workplace drama while trying to win Sibongile’s heart?

Lungelo: Balancing work and romance is tough, especially in the early stages. It’s a challenge navigating both.

Glamour: If Jabu could take Sibongile on a dream date, where would they go and what would they do?

Lungelo: You'll see their journey unfold on the show—perhaps to Mauritius or the Maldives, as Sibongile loves being around water.

Glamour: If Jabu could have a heart-to-heart with his character's father, what advice would he give him about life and love?

Lungelo: Hardships can refine us into our best selves. Embrace them, as they have the potential to bring out our beauty, like a diamond in the rough.
