Sdumo Mtshali is a South African actor who rose to fame by winning the first season of the SABC1 reality competition Class Act, in 2010.

He landed his first leading dramatic role in the SABC1 drama series Intersexions, which premiered in October 2010.

In 2011 he landed the role of Maidi Kotwe on Rhythm City, which he played for a year. His character, a medical student, was married to Nozipho Kotwe (played by Bonnie Henna) and involved in a love triangle with Tshidi (played by Nokuthula Ledwaba).

In 2013 he returned to Rhythm City and landed the starring role of Kuti Daniels in the SABC1 drama series Tempy Pushas, set against the backdrop of the lavish fashion world and juxtaposed with the vibrant township culture.

Born in King Edwards hospital in Durban, Sdumo always dreamt of being an actor. He has a background in theatre and acting in productions while he was studying drama. He is now a fulltime thespian.

After working a series of odd jobs, including working at Marine World, he auditioned for Class Act in 2010 and ended up winning the competition. As part of his prize he won representation from Moonyeen Lee and Associates and was sent on the New York Film Academy for eight weeks to further learn the craft of acting.

Upon his return to South Africa he was cast in the Donovan Marsh film iNumber Number, which was a further part of his prize for winning Class Act. In 2012 he played the role of Spikiri in the feature film Inside Story, directed by Rolie Nikiwe.

Originally from Durban, he currently resides in Johannesburg.

He also has a starring role as Sibusiso "S'bu" Ndlovu, Samson's youngest son, in the Mzansi Magic telenovela-turned-soap-opera isiBaya.
