We can all agree that these rising young performers have made their mark in South Africa’s burgeoning film industry.

They have, however, been well rewarded for their on-screen personas as a result of their sudden popularity. The following is a list of South Africa’s highest-paid child actors. Please keep in mind that these are not exact data; they have not been validated.

    Litlhonolofatso Litlhakanyane is a well-known South African actor, well known for his role as Tebello in the popular soap opera Scandal on etv. He has unquestionably made a name for himself on small screens. After several failed auditions, the upbeat actor made his small-screen debut on Scandal, etv’s most popular drama series. He plays Seipati’s son in the drama series. He is making headlines for his unequaled talent, and Mzansi is curious how much he would earn from the drama series. We can all agree that he has swiftly established himself as one of the show’s faces. Yet, from extra to supporting cast members, the fast-rising actor is winning big time. Litlhonolofatso Litlhakanyane’s take-home pay is between R40,000 and R60,000, depending on time on set.
  2. Scandal’s Tshaiamo Molobi plays Lebo. He’s had more than his fair share of celebrity recently. Tshaiamo Molobi, who portrays Lebo on the etv drama series Scandal, is a well-known young actress. Apart from Scandal, he also stars in the serial opera Diep City. He is most known for his portrayal as Lefa in the television series Rhythm City. With a career spanning decades, the versatile actor is not cheap. The actor earns roughly R30 000 per month for his Lebo persona. He, on the other hand, receives around R20,000 for his Diep City role.
  3. Scandal’s Nqobile is played by Zekhethelo Zondi. Zekhethelo Zondi, a Naledi-born South African actor, dancer, model, and philanthropist, was born. She is most recognized for her role as Nqobile Mdletshe, often known as Just Nqobile, on Scandal. Zekhethelo Zondi is a model and actress best known for her part in the Mzansi Magic television series Isifiso. She began acting at an early age and joined an agency when she was just six years old. Her major break came in 2017 when she was hired as Zinhle, Pallence Dladla’s daughter, in the Netflix series Shadow. She made her debut as Mae in the 2019 short film Grave Confession. That same year, she appeared in a FNB television ad. Zekhethelo plays Thandeka in the 2021 Netflix original film Collision. Given Zekhethelo’s current role on the television show Scandal, she seems to be a temporary leader or support. Therefore, it is predicted that her compensation will fall between R25,000 and R30,000. Naturally, that depends on the season. Also undetermined is her financial worth.
  4. In House Of Zwide, Karabo Magongwa plays Keletso. Karabo Magongwa (born 2008) is a South African child actor best known for playing Azania in the Vuzu Amp drama series aYeYe.

Karabo Magongwa is a promising actress who portrays Keletso in the etv drama series House Of Zwide. She makes more money from advertisements, yet it appears that she falls short of monthly pay when compared to other emerging stars. Without a doubt, House Of Zwide is not a low-budget production, thus the emerging actress is paid roughly R25,000 every episode.
  5. Scandal’s Khanyi is played by KaiAnn Munyaka. KaiAnn Munyaka is a promising actress who plays Khanyi Jewel Nyathi on the etv programme Scandal. She has been impersonated as the crown gem of small screens. Her unrivalled talent has earned her a place among Mzansi’s best child actresses.
