Ray Ntlokwana

Velaphi is best known for his hilarious character on one of South Africa’s most popular shows from the 1990s, ‘Velaphi.’ He received a national award for his portrayal of the character. It was unfortunate that his career caused him to become bankrupt and impoverished while he had six children. I needed to open a bank account to pay for his funeral. He passed away in the year 2000.
