On screen Skeem Saam’s Mlungisi Mathe is the corrupt and womanising varsity student Emkay, but even though he’s nothing like that in real life, it hasn’t stopped his legions of female fans from throwing themselves at the young soapie star.
Talking to Sowetan recently, Mlungisi says that his inbox is filled with adoring female fans, some of them have even sent naked selfies!.
Also in his inbox are loads of proposals: marriage proposals, proposals to buy him stuff, proposals to be their Ben 10 and a whole lot of proposals we would rather not mention!
“I get a lot of proposals, most of them are scary and weird,” he tells the paper.
“Some of the requests they make …I don’t even know what to say… what is this, can a person who is normal say something like this?” he adds, laughing.
But Mlungisi says it’s not going to his head because he understands it’s not him that the thirsty ladies want, but rather Emkay!
