Early Life

Luthuli Dlamini was born on 13 March 1966 in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. He grew up in England spending his time between that country his his native Zimbabwe. "I was born in Zimbabwe in the late 60’s and moved between Africa and Europe most of my life. I lived all the way through the Beatles craze of the UK and the liberation movement of Zimbabwe. England was fun but I felt like a foreigner and I always wanted to come back home," he remarked during a Drum magazine interview.

Scandal Controversy

Luthuli Dlamini initially notified the producers of Scandal! on 4 June 2007 that he had been ill and needed sometime off. After a prolonged absence and no news from him, the producers of that show tried to reach him to no success, at which point they went to his house where they found that the house appeared to be uninhibited.

After two weeks of no news from him the police were notified and they discovered that he had been inside his house. He claimed that he had been sick and needed time to recuperate. On 28 June 2007 he was dismissed from Scandal! but later returned on recurring basis to see out his character of Stan Nyathi.
