From 18 June, Siv Ngesi will be gracing our screens on Wednesdays at 8:30 pm as the new Adventure Presenter on The Man Cave (SABC 3). We caught up with the charismatic Siv recently and he definitely put a smile on our faces.
The Man Cave is all about man power! What’s your definition of an alpha male?
I believe an alpha male can laugh at himself and he never tries too hard.
We’re likely to see you on many Man Cave adventures. What gets your adrenalin going?
My adrenalin pumps whenever I’m out of my comfort zone and when I’m challenging myself and competing! I am very competitive!
Your performance career started at the young age of nine with a role in Les Miserables. Since then we’ve seen you act in Invictus and Long Walk To Freedom, laughed along with you in stand-up shows like Race Card, and watched your moves in Strictly Come Dancing… Which form of performance are you the most in love with and why?
That’s like asking Zuma to pick a favorite wife! But my favourite has to be acting for film! There’s nothing like making love to the camera … not making love on camera, that’s another story.
Which other talents do you have under your sleeve?
I am an amateur boxer, I have fought two fights and won two! I have one more fight in July … going for the hat trick! I am allergic to losing.
You’re one of Cosmopolitan’s sexiest men for 2015 and you’ve previously been voted by GQ as one of South Africa’s top 10 best dressed. What style advice do you have for men to feel their best?
The best parts of your outfit are your smile and confidence. With those two, you could wear a black bag and look great.
