Sicelo Buthelezi on his education

While most of Sicelo Buthelezi’s information is known. It is contested when he was born. Other sources claim he was born in 1985, on the 20th of March. Making him at least 37 years old as of 2022. However, other sources claim that he is only 23 years old, citing a date of birth of 06 February 1999.
These dates are considerably different and hard to merge. However, the most cited is the implausible 1985 one. But, by the look of things, it is agreeable that he is only 23 years old. Considering his role on Gomorrah was a 19 year old Teddy.
So, it’s either he Is a 37 year old playing a 19 year old, or a 23 year old playing a 19 year old. Whichever is more plausible for you, but at Safrolebs have agreed to a consensus of 1999, 6 February. Because it makes more plausible sense to us.
