I own the fact that I am attractive, says Lehasa Moloi.

He’s an actor and writer, now a music star in the making. DRUM caught up with Lehasa Moloi

The last time we saw you was on Rockville. How was that?

Yes, many people have been tweeting and talking about it coming back. So we’ll see how that goes.

Speaking of acting, what’s been one of your all-time favourite scenes to shoot?

A scene in Season 1 of Rockville, when Shona Ferguson’s character, JB, confronted my character, Oupa, and roughed him up a bit. That was reminiscent of something that happened to me a while ago. Doing that scene, in a protected environment, was cathartic.

Tell us about your new career path.

I’m currently working on my music and it’s been a big transition from acting, so I’m learning the ropes. I’m working on a hip hop album that will be out next year sometime. I have a single that will drop soon, so people will see a different side to me.

Who inspires you musically?

HHP, Zubz, Kanye West, Jay Z and Fabolous.


You’re in amazing shape. How do you maintain your body?

Well, thank you. I take care of my body and work out six times a week for an hour or two daily, depending on my schedule. I also eat healthy so that is a full-time job on its own, but I love it. The downside to that is people end up thinking I’m not so smart and spend all my time in gym – which isn’t true.

What’s another public misconception about you?

People think I’m young and naive. They also think I’m small built and are shocked when they meet me in person.

Women obviously think that you’re hot. Do you think you’re attractive?

Yes I do. It took me a while to get to that space, but now I own it. I am attractive!

Tell us something that we don’t know about you.

That I’ve been fired from jobs way more than I’ve been hired. Sometimes I feel it wasn’t fair but I kept pushing. I’m also a great cook!

Who is Lehasa?

Humble, truly South African, close to my Sesotho roots and resilient.

What’s your biggest fears?

Being irrelevant in the true meaning of the word to me – I always want to be someone who adds value to other people’s lives. No negative energy but good value.

What do you know without a doubt?

That there is a God and I’m here because of him. I’ve always felt His presence even during painful and dark times.
