If you have not watched the Showtime tv show, “The Chi”; you should check it out. It is an amazing show and I got to opportunity to interview Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine who plays Reggie for the Sag Aftra Foundation.
Check out the interview below:
A Q&A with Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine of THE CHI. Moderated by T.K. Trinidad. Produced entirely in its namesake city, THE CHI is a timely coming-of-age story centering on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption. Season two will spotlight Brandon’s (Jason Mitchell) ambitious plan to make his food truck a success, along with navigating the class differences between he and his girlfriend Jerrika (Tiffany Boone). Emmett (Jacob Latimore) will encounter a lot of bumps and bruises as he makes an effort to grow up and get custody of his son, guided by his mother Jada (Yolonda Ross) who is discovering a new life of her own. Kevin’s (Alex Hibbert) ability to deal with the trauma of what he has experienced in his young life will be tested, as he strengthens the bonds with his buddies, Papa (Shamon Brown Jr.) and Jake (Michael V. Epps), whose older brother Reg (Barton Fitzpatrick) exposes Jake to twisted lessons in street survival. Lastly, an imprisoned Ronnie (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine) will attempt to come to terms with killing Brandon’s brother and reclaim his life, while Detective Cruz (Armando Riesco) launches a new investigation. The season will also show the joys of living life on the Southside of Chicago.

I have been following boxing on and off for years, especially when Mayweather was fighting. I first heard of Victor Ortiz when he went up against Mayweather which resulted in a broken jaw. After that Ortiz was seen in movies and Dancing with the Stars. Ortiz is still boxing and helping young boxers active their dreams. He has an incredible story.
