Rise to fame
When your predecessors are already making it in the game, you will have everything to prove, as most end up assuming that all is handed to you on a silver platter.

Only three years into her career, and she is already quitting? Candice reveals the shocking news of her egress from Generations: “The Legacy”, which leaves fans in awe. “Truly one of the most bittersweet moments of my career, to actively leave a place I’ve called home. What started like three months after the antagonizing rebel who eventually won over Lesedi’s friendship became three years of the Lerato Matema coming of age story. Silly crushes, secrets, drug addiction, activism, kidnappings, campaigns, sisterhood, a sense of belonging, struggles with identity and young love,” she posts on Instagram.

She decides to take a break from acting to focus more on her company to develop youth skills. “I plan on leaving no stone unturned.

As a TV personality, what better present is there to buy oneself than an enticing smile?

Though the imperfections were seemingly minor, it affected my work, on-screen performances because of how insecure I felt and, more importantly, my overall confidence.” All this extravagance boosts her confidence as she prepares for her new role in “Impilo”. Whoever said money doesn’t solve problems must not have had enough to solve them.
Since Candice Modiselle bagged new teeth, who is the boyfriend, she is enticing with that new smile?
Sis is going big for sure!! From making money moves to scoring one of the actors who get most ladies drooling. Pallance Dladla, the leading actor of the hit Netflix series “The Shadow “, is supposedly Candice’s beau.

Most celebs do not earn nearly the sum of money the public perceives. “How much money do you guys think we make? This sweet, sweet girl just asked me for a donation of R40k. I had to read the figure twice because bathing my love, 40 tao e twang kae?” Was the little girl wrong, though? Because the lives portrayed on social media by these celebrities convince us that they are loaded.
