@IAMSIVN // “Spurred on by a hunger for success, Sivuyile “Siv” Ngesi is one of SA’s most dynamic actors and comedians in the South African entertainment scene, and with good reason.
It isn’t a far cry to find Ngesi immersed in several different spheres of the performing arts at one time, as he showcases his talents across a number of platforms in order to achieve the success he has always dreamed of, no wonder he was voted Mail and Guardian most influential young South African.
At the age of nine Siv toured Asia with Les Miserables in the coveted role of Gavroshe. Since then he has landed roles in films such as World Unseen, Zeenon Z3 , Schweitzer , Invictus and Long Walk To Freedom. He first made a name for himself in the popular SABC 1 television programmer Khululeka, The Adventures of Sinbad, Double Shift and Interrogation Room. Siv was also one of the leads in M-Net’s League Of Glory. He also appeared on Mzanzi Magic’s S.I.E.S and the international series Strike Back. His best credit to date must be his scenes with Keifer Sutherland in the hit American TV series, 24.
Siv’s theatre experience includes top class productions such as Sizwe Banzi is Dead, The Island , Butlers and Brandy and more recently his stand-up comedy show Dekaf, and the very controversial Race Card that was sold out on it’s national tour. Siv performs to expats all around the world and with his very South African flavor of humor , he makes many want to book a ticket back home to SA .
In 2014 Siv captivated audiences with his smile and dance moves in the 7th Season of Strictly Come Dancing which aired on SABC3 and can be seen presenting a tv show on ETV called Skywin.
Apart from being an established actor & comedian, Siv has also been in demand on the corporate circuit as MC and Entertainer, and has seen his career skyrocket as both local and international acting offers have come his way.
