It is every actor/ac­tress’s dream to have a SAFTA as part of their col­lec­tions. For Tshep­ang, it was an unexpected wish that came to pass. “Win­ning the award was su­per ex­cit­ing and my pro­file up­graded dras­ti­cally and more op­por­tu­ni­ties started com­ing”, he says. The 24 year old also has an award for best child actor from the African Movie Academy Award. Tshep­ang says that his fans can ex­pect more of his act­ing, mu­sic and film mak­ing. He is known for his breath taking role in South Africa’s tele­vi­sion drama, Izulu Lami (My se­cret sky) as Chilli Bite. Tshep­ang Mohlomi is a 24 year old who has made his name big through his act­ing tal­ent and pas­sion. The 24 year old Tshep­ang gives us an in­sight into his act­ing ca­reer af­ter be­ing picked from an in­for­mal set­tle­ment in eN­tuzuma, Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Get­ting started:

It was in the year of 2007 when Tshep­ang was dis­cov­ered by the pro­ducer of the drama “Izulu Lami” by Madoda Ncayane, who is the pro­ducer of the drama. Tshep­ang played the role of a street kid who was the leader of them all as Chilli Bite. Doors kept open­ing for Tshep­ang with great op­por­tu­ni­ties in the in­dus­try even though he did not have any act­ing back­ground when he first started his act­ing ca­reer. “I was re­ally ex­cited about it be­cause it was my first ex­pe­ri­ence and see­ing my­self on big screens was just a dream come true. I am for­ever grate­ful”, he says. With his great pas­sion for act­ing, Tshep­ang’s role in Izulu Lami gained him more fol­low­ers and act­ing skills as a whole.

Chilli Bite:

It is ev­ery­one’s ques­tion about the name “Chilli Bite”. Tshep­ang says it is his stage name as he does mu­sic, act­ing and film direct­ing. Tshep­ang has hit tracts such as “Shand­pha, Me and Ma mama as well as My Dali”.

Tshep­ang Mohlomi (24) says that he did not have any act­ing back­ground when he first started his act­ing ca­reer.
