Actor and former reality TV star Clayton
Misoya is back on our screens. The actor made his comeback on one of South
Africa’s favourite soapies, Skeem Skaam.
He is playing Levison Mkandawire who is

what will transpire between the two guys.
“He is friends with Marothi. But he will
share information that will upset Marothi and [they] might become frenemies. I

“We shoot months in advance and Clayton
joined us two months ago and appeared on our screens last night (Tuesday 21 May),”
she shared. Sumaya was reluctant to share how long the actor will be part of
the show but promised that he will shake things up.
“He’ll be on our screens for a few weeks,”
