He’s one of the most easily recognisable faces on SA television.
Yet you’ll never find him throwing his weight around – he’ll go to an audition just like everyone else, thank you very much. Seputla Sebogodi may have had over 30 years in the industry and is a house - hold name thanks to playing Generations’ Kenneth Mashaba, but he still has his feet firmly planted on the ground. He tells DRUM how he had to queue for the audition for Lithapo, just like everyone else. It’s in this role in the SABC2 telenovela that he’s now flexing his creative muscles.
“You treat every day as a new day,” the 57-year-old says. “You can’t go into an audition pompous.” When he got the role of Bra Kabe, he knew he had to give it his all. “I make sure every role I play is different. Otherwise as an artist, it is going to be boring for me. Bra K is not as loud as the characters I have played and that is what an actor is supposed to do – be able to transition effortlessly.”
