He needs no introduction best known for his on-screen character of Chef Kgosi on SABC1’s drama series Skeem Saam. He has been gracing our screens for years. We can all agree that he is that star actor we all love to hate.
The celebrated actor was born and bred in Kgalagatsane, a small village around Zeerust where he originally comes from. Like those before him, his thrust into the limelight came in the backdrop of Theatre plays. However, he studied at Ramolao Makhene Theatre – Market Theatre. Upon graduating, he fast became one of the best crops produced by Ramolao Makhene Theatre.
Apart from acting, the bubbly actor doubles as a writer and director. He has worked on several programs that have made him one of the few actors to have produced award-winning programmes. Since his thrust into the limelight, he has been winning big.
He has starred in several series snd made appearances in adverts. No doubt his theatre play Darkie made him one of Mzansi’s finest. However, he is best known for his Skeem Saam character, Chef Kgosi, in many things.

Currently, on Skeem Saam, he works with Lehasa, who happens to be his boss. Kgosi and Lehasa are trying to get rid of information linking them to Fanie’s death. However, it seems as if walls are closing in for them as they find it hard to access information relating to the murder case.
However, despite being one of the big names on the drama series, the actor also has a side hustle that plays well. He has business interests in farming and majors in vegetable produce and sale.
In the wake of his new gig on Scandal, Mzansi has been wondering about the actor’s monthly takings and net worth of late. For his Chef Kgosi character on Skeem Saam, the actor gets a take-home salary of R40 000 per month.
However, considering how many other showrunners pay to their cast, the actor earns more than we thought. His net worth got implicated in his Skeem Saam salary news. Rumour has it that he earns more from his side hustles and as of 2021, he has an estimated net worth of R2.4 million.
