Former Scandal! actor Kagiso Modupe has shared the details of how he made his first million using his manhood.

Modupe shared the details in an interview with David Mashabela on his YouTube channel, King David Studio, about his journey in the entertainment industry and how much he and his family sacrificed for his debut movie, Losing Lerato. According to the actor, he made his first million by using his private part in an advert.

"I made my first bar via my private part," he said in the interview.

While Modupe did not detail how the idea came about, he said he used not being circumcised to his advantage. He said it happened when he was around 12 years into his marriage.

"I approached Brothers For Life, I approached Right To Care and said let me do it publicly, but I'm gonna go and encourage men to come and do it with me in Katlegong on the same day," he told Mashabela.


"I put it out there on social media, but I said I need R1 from every circumcision that I make, and across the country, I got 1.1 million men, and they did it."
