During an interview with Channel24 before he jetted into Mzansi, Sam said that he was so excited to be visiting our shores.

“I’m so excited to come over there, I’ve never ever been to South Africa before but I’m so excited to be there. I’m so excited to drink South African wine,” he said.

The star also showed his appreciation for the love he’s received in Mzansi so far by sharing a picture of a group of women wearing T-shirts with his picture on it.
