UK-based, Zimbabwean Actor Munashe Chirisa who is better known for his Comedy skits recently landed a leading gig in an Amazon Prime Ad.
Munashe, as he is now known, has done everything from funny vines as biblical characters to flexing Rap skills in music videos. He got the Amazon Prime role after three rounds of intense auditions out of over 1000 candidates. Meanwhile; Munashe was going through an intense break-up with his longtime girlfriend and had just let go of his Talent Manager of two years.
The Amazon advert was directed by multi-award-winning director Steve Rogers who’s done ads for Nike and Old Spice. The advert showcases ‘Amazon Prime’, the online store’s version of Netflix; a video-on-demand streaming service.
