Mogau Motlhatswi is a celebrated South African actress best known for her unmatched talent as Mapitsi on Skeem Saam. Dupped as the next big thing to Mzansi’s small screens, the bubbly actress has won big of late. She has fast become one of Mzansi’s finest with her unmatched talent. Of late, the actress has fast become the face of SABC’s drama series Skeem Saam.
The actress was cast as Mapitsi Magongwa, the baby mama and fiance of Thabo Maputla character played by Cornet Mamabolo. Like those before her, she had her shot to fame through theatre arts. Despite having a craze for law, she later enrolled in theatre plays. However, from there, she hogged headlines when she was cast into Skeem Saam.
Of interest is that she hasn’t been on any big-screen project besides Skeem Saam. She joined the educational drama series in 2011 in the wake of big wins in theatre plays. In recent seasons we have come to witness her on-screen husband, Cornet Mamabolo.
Currently, she has been wowing Mzansi as she seems to be connecting the dots about John Maputla’s weird behavior of late. John has been coming home late, spending weekends out, and trying to cover his tracks, but it seems as if Mapitsi thinks otherwise. Will she manage to fix the puzzle that John has an extramarital affair with Melita?
No doubt the actress has not only become one of Skeem Saam’s finest but Mzansi at large. Mzansi has wondered about her age and takes home salary on Skeem Saam in the mix of things. After all, it seems as if the actress is older than we thought. The 29-year-old actress was born in Mogoto, Limpopo, South Africa on July 13, 1992.
Mogau Paulina Motlhatswi is a true testimony of beauty with brains as she holds an honors degree in Audiovisual Communications from the University of Johannesburg. For her Mapitsi on-screen character, the rumor mill has it that the bubbly actress takes a whopping R40 000 per month. More late showrunners have been paying their cast based on variables such as experience and role prominence.
