Buhle Samuels is an amazing combination of beauty, brains, and charm. She has not revealed the name of the elementary school she attended but there are reports that she spent her childhood in South Africa. Buhle has revealed that after high school, she got accepted into the University of South Africa to study Somatology and after completing her studies, she earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree.

Considering that she did not study drama or anything related to the career she is pursuing now, you can’t help but wonder how she managed to be so good on screen. Well, for Buhle, everything about being in the entertainment industry is all about passion.

She Started Her Career As A TV Presenter

After graduating from high school, Buhle started her own mobile beauty salon. Although we can’t say how long she had to run the salon before starting her career in the entertainment industry, it is quite obvious that it did not last for so long. She soon landed a job with Africa Magic in 2014 to host a breakfast show. At this time, she was 24 years old.

While working with Africa Magic brought her some level of fame, it does not take all the credit for making her as famous as she is today.

Featuring In Muvhango Was A Career Breakthrough For Buhle Samuels

Buhle Samuels made her acting debut on SABC2’s soapie, Muhvango. She landed this gig not long after she started hosting the breakfast show in Africa Magic. In Muvhango, she played the role of Matshidiso Mofokeng. She was so good at playing this role that viewers could not help but notice the new actress with top-notch acting skills.

Featuring in Muhvango brought Buhle Samuels to the spotlight. And considering the work she put into making her character look so real, the fame was deserving. According to her, settling into the role was not all rosy, plus, she had to learn a bit of the Venda language.

Another thing that made her character challenging was the fact that in reality, her personality was the opposite of Matshidiso Mofokeng. While Matshidiso Mofokeng was mean and vindictive, Buhle Samuel says she is a kind person. However, she pulled through and delivered the role so well, irrespective of the challenges.

She was so good at her role that it earned her nomination for the Best Newcomer at the 2015 Annual Royalty Soapie award – even though she did not win as Izak Davel took home the award.

She Left Muvhango After Four Years To Kick Off Her Music Career

After four years of playing the role of Matshidiso Mofokeng, Buhle Samuels decided that it was time to move into something else. In 2019, to the dismay of fans who were already so used to the fact that she was a part of Muvhango, she quit the job. According to her, the decision to quit her role in Muvhango was because she needed time to build other areas of her career.

She took her career to another level by signing into Arthur Mafokate’s 999 record label. She has since released songs like Dim the Light, Ng’enza So, Everywoman, and Cheater (I’m Done). Buhle is also known for her dance moves. She is regarded as one of Mzansi’s best dancers. Indeed she has multiple creative skills.

In 2019, The Talented Actress Made Her Return to the Screens

Leaving the set of Muhvango was not leaving acting entirely for Buhle Samuels as in 2019, she landed another acting gig. She was drafted to play the role of Zandile in a new TV series The Seed written by Duma Ndlovu.

Although her role was not the lead, it was one that revolved around the life of the lead character – and Buhle delivered her role perfectly. She has also featured in the Netflix series Kings of Jo’burg, where she played the role of a supportive, loving but huffy wife named Angela Masire.
