Hailing from Parkgate, in KZN, Nkanyiso started playing football at school since his early teenage years. Growing up in awe of his favourite player Emmanuel “Scara” Ngobese, Zungu continued playing football after school and joined his first club AmaZulu FC. During his time at AmaZulu, the young midfielder went on loan to Durban FC before moving on to Jomo Cosmos. He would play for one more club, Stellenbosch FC, before signing with the club of his childhood dreams, Orlando Pirates Football Club.
With high hopes of contributing to the Club’s success, Zungu aspires to play a vital role in adding silverware to the Club’s collection. He has also set his sights on a Bafana Bafana call-up and has ambitions of playing abroad.
Nkanyiso lives true to his name spending his time off the field enjoying singing and dancing with his friends and family.
