South African actor Motlatsi Mafatshe is a household name and a face easily recognizable to most South Africans. He can easily be termed one of the most famous actors in Mzansi and has been for many years. Currently, the actor is a recurring actor in House of Zwide and has been trending these past days due to his on-screen fight.
Motlatsi’s role in House of Zwide as Molefe
Motlatsi Mafatshe takes in the role of Molefe in the fashion drama telenovela and has been holding it since the series debuted. Molefe is Onalerona’s uncle and a brother to Rea, who is Ona’s stepmother and the only mother she has known. Despite having his problems relationship-wise and business-wise, he is always looking out for his family, which has landed him in trouble recently.
With Isaac being in jail for kidnapping Ona, it now falls on Molefe’s shoulders to take care of the family. With that in mind, Molefe is letting it get to his head, which leads to a fight with Nkosi Zwide and then having the two men wedge war between the two families. Molefe has always been treated like one of the kids in the Molapo household because of the mistakes he is always making regularly. Also, because of his youthful features, the actor appears as if he is younger than he is.
Motlatsi Mafatshe’s age and Net worth
Motlatsi was born in 1984, which makes him 38years old this year and older than most of his fans thought he was. Mafatshe joined the industry as an actor in 2005, with his debut role being Elalini in a short video. His television career came two years later as Casper in When We Were Black in 2007. After that, his career just started shooting up, and he has never been without a role for a long time. His most famous role before House of Zwide was in Isidingo, a cast that Motlatsi was with for close to ten years.
Besides the successful acting career, Motlatsi is a successful musician under the name Tlatsi and has been releasing songs for several years now. The entertainer specialized in music while studying for his degree at the AFDA. It’s funny to many of his hardcore followers that his primary career is acting instead of music.
When the Covid pandemic hit the globe two years ago, showbiz died a little, and many artists had to find another income stream to sustain their everyday life. Motlatsi started a farming business on the side that supported his family throughout the lockdown. The actor is rumoured to be worth an estimated R4 million, with most of his money coming from his intensive acting career.
