Somizi’s Fiance Mohale Bags His First Acting Role! When we first got introduced to Mohale Motaung, he was said to be a student and working in the corporate world but it seems Somizi’s influence was too big.
Although he has appeared on TV before in his fiance’s hit reality show, Mohale has officially bagged his first entertainment gig as an actor on MTV’s popular show Shuga.
Mohale will be playing the role of Odirile, an openly gay man who will shine light on issues surrounding HIV prevention, precautionary medication as well as abusive relationships amongst others.
“Odirile is one of the key characters through which the series will explore innovations in the HIV-prevention space, including precautionary medication like PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis), self- testing, toxic masculinity, abusive relationships and transactional sex,” he said before explaining how including Mohale in the cast opens up the industry for young talent,” the Vice President for Youth, Music and BET for Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa) Monde Twala said.
“As an openly-gay man, I’m fortunate to have the support of my family and my fiancé, Somizi, but not all South African youth, especially those growing up in conservative and traditional households, experience the same level of acceptance. That’s why programmes like MTV Shuga play such a crucial role in informing the youth and helping them realise they are not alone,” Mohale said on his new role.
We can’t wait to see him in action.
