Siv Ngesi’s #ShowmaxAddiction
He’s possibly the cheekiest celebrity in South Africa right now, and he’s only just getting started. He’s not shy either, as you know from the recent butt pics he shared when he dropped his pants on the Thando Thabooty show on 5FM.
Here’s a reminder:

1. It seems that Kim Kardashian has competition in the posterior department. Tell us about that pic, were you trying to break the net with your booty?
Hahaha! While we traveled for Wingin’ It , I occasionally would take ass pics in front of amazing views … I must add I have a mighty lekker ass, it’s so Lekker it’s spelt cl-ASS! Some had negative things to say about the picture, but this lion doesn’t care what sheep think, life is too short for clothing.
2. What are you working on at the moment that you’re excited about?
I am currently shooting Man Cave, filled with travel, adventure and kak praat! Just boys being boys, on TV and getting paid for it. Dream Job stuff. But Wingin’ It is the ultimate dream job … traveling around the world to put bread on the table.
3. From acting to stand-up comedy, you’ve been hustling hard to get where you are today. What were some of the craziest gigs you’ve done?
At nine years old I performed at Madiba’s birthday party and I had lunch with him. I can still feel his soft hands…
Three years ago I was flown to America to MC the retirement of a service dog. (Yes, I said dog, as in canine.) And two years ago I was flown to Dubai to MC a wedding of two strangers, it was magical.
4. What’s the last series you binge-watched?
Veep is my biggest addiction at the moment! It’s a drug and a half!
