tshego Seak­goe got her first taste of the spot­light at age eight, when she sang for Nel­son Mandela’s 80th birth­day in 1998. “It’s one of my most trea­sured mem­o­ries and the news­pa­per clip­ping is a re­minder of why I wanted to en­ter the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try,” says the 26-year-old.

Mi­nor stints on YOTV and KTV fol­lowed and af­ter ma­tric she went on to study In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions and Diplo­macy. She also started mod­el­ling. “My first big cam­paign was for Le­git’s spring/sum­mer 2012 range and then came one of my ca­reer high­lights: walk­ing for David Tlale at the 2013 Mercedes-benz Fash­ion Week,” she says.

The last year has seen Tshego re­turn­ing to the small screen, with roles on Keep­ing Score and the pop­u­lar The Queen. “I love the con­stant chal­lenge of be­com­ing a dif­fer­ent per­son with each char­ac­ter. It isn’t easy, but it’s taught me to be less self-con­scious and to keep learn­ing.”

Up next: a role in the lo­cally pro­duced movie En­emy of the State and a part in her first in­ter­na­tional se­ries, FIFTY, di­rected by the ac­claimed Akin Omo­toso.
