  • Anyone who has watched the South African Broadcasting Corporation's Shaka Zulu miniseries will agree with me that many millions will always associate Henry Cele with Shaka Zulu. His performance in that film was one of the most passionate displays of acting brilliance that I have ever seen. He really put Africa on the map. Henry Cele passed away five years ago. He lived a short life having been born on  30th January 1949 and passed away on 2nd November, 2007.

    Below is a snapshot of his performances in Shaka Zulu. The background music is from Margaret Singana, 'We are Growing' whose words you can find by clicking here

    Henry was the most beautiful man I have ever laid eyes on and a great actor. I am sorry he is gone. Rest in peace you beautiful creature.

    I'm not saying this because I liked Cele, but it's realy what my eyes beheld in him. The guy was truly handsome, tall, dark, beautiful teeth, great structure. It seems like God realy took his time when he created him.
