Bonginkosi Ntuli was a South African professional soccer player who was always dedicated to his craft. He was born on March 28, 1991, in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

Ntuli has always been in love with the sport ever since he was a kid. He began his career in the Vodacom League with Sobantu Shooting Stars.

But shortly after, he went on to join the Golden Arrows reserve team, where he made his debut in January 2012. 

After the Arrows, he joined Mamelodi Sundowns in 2014 but struggled to break into the team, and six months later, he joined AmaZulu on loan.

From 2015 to 2018, Platinum Stars loaned Ntuli. A resilient player, Ntuli went on trial with Djurgardens IF in July 2018.

However, his transfer to Europe never happened because Ntuli and Djurgardens couldn’t agree on the financial terms of his arrangement.

Ntuli joined AmaZulu on loan in August 2018, which later turned into a permanent deal in 2019.
