Twenty five-year old ex-fireman Abdul Khoza says he is living it up after landing his first role on television as Two Step, a rising soccer star in the winning drama series Intersexions. The rising actor won over many South Africans when he emerged as the winner of the second season of the SABC 1 reality show, Class Act in 2011.

After winning the competition, Khoza left his job as a fireman in Durban and moved to Johannesburg to pursue a career in acting. The aspiring actor  served four years in the army before he became a firefighter and  is a fitness fanatic who loves an adrenaline rush. An avid skate-boarder and super bike rider, Khoza dreams of becoming a stuntman one day.

"Intersexions was a big deal for me. Not only is it a great drama series but it is the most educational. Being my first acting role on television I was very nervous but my directors and co-stars reassured me and made me feel at ease," says Khoza.

Currently Khoza is wrapping up his first musical single which he plans to release later in the year.
