She is young: Scandal actress Omphile ‘Botlhale Boikanyo’s age leaves Mzansi in disbelief
Dupped as the golden girl of small screens, the bubbly actress has proved her worth when it comes to acting. Botlhale Boikanyo is a celebrated South African actress best known for her on-screen character on etvs drama series Scandal as Omphile.
Apart from acting, the bubbly actress doubles as a poet and performer. Unlike others who were thrust into the limelight through theatre, Botlhale made a name for herself when she won the South Africa’s Got Talent show whilst 13-years-old.
Of interest is that she was introduced to poetry whilst she was just six years old. From there, she was performing at big stages before her thrust into the stardom, which came in the backdrop of South Africa’s Got Talent win in 2012. Two years down the line, the actress released her original poetry album Spoken Word and Music.
However, fortune favours the bold in the wake of her big wins; she bagged a gig on Scandal as Omphile Ngema. On-screen, she is talkative and is a free-spirited teen who has her fair share of teen struggles, from relationships to education struggles.

She hogged all sorts of headlines at some point when her on-screen character was taken out of context. In one of the scenes, she trended after giving one of the boys a thorough beating because of crushing on her friend.

At the age of 20-years, she already has an illustrious career capped with accolades and glory. She is poised for greatness and that’s definitely another Leleti Khumalo in the making.
