Makgofe Moagi is one of the many South African actresses who slayed a role so much that people confused her on-screen character and life character. Her role in Skeem Saam sparked a lot of discussions and debates all over social media.
Some areas in the Limpopo province named her the face of side chicks on social media. Makgofe Moagi’s age stuns Mzansi as people realize that the actress is older than she looks.
The Skeem Saam actress rose to fame in South African entertainment scenes when she landed a job as a suitcase model in the hit show Deal or no Deal. The actress who always knew that her place in the world was in front of the camera made a name for herself in the modelling industry.
However, before Makgofe was a model on the M-net game show, she was a presenter on the SABC 2 talk show Motswako. She held that hosting gig for two years, from 2005 to 2006. That’s the job that made her a big name in the entertainment industry.
She is older: South Africans can’t believe Makgofe Moagi’s age.
In 2007, Makgofe debuted her acting career when she landed a role as Tumi in the SABC 2 drama series 90 Plein Street. In the second season of that same show, she was recast in 2009, playing the role of Maphaseka in its second season. The year 2014 saw her landing the most significant role in her acting life so far. She was cast in Skeem Saam as Charity Ramabu, who played John Maputla’s side chick.
When talking about her role in Skeem Saam, she said she is grateful for both people’s positive and negative responses. The actress knew she was doing justice to the character when many people started confusing what she did on-screen for who she was as a person.
The actress, who looks like she might be in her late twenties, shocked South Africa when they found out that she is 42 years old. Makgofe does know how to take care of her looks and skin. The actress hardly shows any signs of ageing.
