Skhumba Hlophe is a South African comedian, radio presenter and actor. The comedian has two children with his wife. He lost his first born son at only nine weeks.
He is well known for his starring role as Bheki Zulu, the overbearing mechanic father of the title character, in the SABC1 sitcom Thandeka’s Diary. He is also known for his role as Dlamini in the feature film Taxi Ride and its spin-off series of the same name.
Skhumba Aka Big Banger is the voice of Tembisa FM and although he is relatively new to the comedy scene he is very quickly establishing himself as a very reputable entertainer. With his Zulu foundation his hilarious mannerisms and slang are a lot similar to what can be heard around some of the hoods of Gauteng.
Skhumba’s humour is based on general observations of life which makes allot of his material very easy to relate to. With Big Banger’s larger than life comedy attitude he tends to thrill audiences and critics alike.
