Blow out your 43 candles today Dingaan Mokebe! The actor, singer, voice artist and television presenter is enjoying his birthday today.

The multi-talented actor plays the much loved James Motsamai in the soap opera Muvhango, and has been since 2003.

He also spread his wings and dabbled in presenting, when he replaced both Duncan Senye and Vuyelwa Booi, as the single host of the consumer rights show Speak Out. He took over in 2013 starting with Season 6 and continued hosting for three seasons, until 2016.

Here are the many times Dingaan Mokebe made headlines recently:

Did you know he actually changed his real name to James Mostamai? 

“Before I was James, I was a nobody and after 16-years of being James in Muvhango, I decided to honor the guy who made my life awesome by becoming him.”

“Having the whole Southern African Development Community know me as James for the past 16-years has changed my life in many different ways.
I feel like I am James, not Dingaan I can relate to James more you know. People call me James and I had to stop fighting it and accept my destiny.” said Dingaan Mokebe when quizzed about this move.

We love that he is always full of advice and doesn't hold back. Remember when he told women to stop being hard to get? 

"Ladies, have you ever played hard to get knowing very well that you want this guy but you played hard to get? And then when he was no longer interested and was with somebody else, that's when you wanted him but he was no longer available? – Said the Muvhango actor in the video
