Gomora Actress Thathi ‘Katlego Danke’ celebrates birthday, real age shocks Mzansi
It won’t be fair enough to talk about the South African entertainment industry without implicating Katlego Danke into the equation. The seasoned actress has become one of Mzansi’s finest of late with her unmatched talent. She is best known for her on-screen character Thathi on Mzansi Magic’s drama series Gomora.
However, apart from acting, she also doubles as a radio DJ and TV presenter. Her illustrious career spans decades, and she is not holding back. In the mix of things, she has capped her career with accolades such as the precious Golden Horn Award.
Her thrust into the limelight came with her Backstage gig in 2002. However, her unmatched talent saw her winning several gigs. Notable gigs that made all sorts of headlines were from Isidingo and Generations before casting on Gomora.
In recent years she has been best known as Dineo Mashaba on the Old Generations, but her Generations fame is quickly fizzling out given her on-screen character on Gomora. Since her debut on Gomora, she has managed to wow Mzansi, and she is that star actress we all love to hate. A few ago, the actress won big when she won big at the Annual Royal Soapie Awards.
Here are some of the awards she has managed to cap her career within recent years.
Best actress award from the South African Film and Television Awards
In 2006 and 2011, she was voted one of FHM’s 100 sexiest women in the world.
In 2010 she was a nominee for a YOU spectacular award for Favourite Actress.
She is nominated Best Screen Villain in the Duku-Duku 2004 Awards,
Best Dressed Actress in 2009 at the South African Film and TV Awards
However, despite her success, Mzansi has been wondering how old the star actress is. Well, Katlego Danke recent turned 43-years a few days ago. In the wake of her birthday, Mzansi seems to be coming to terms that she is 43-years. Her youthful looks have deceived many.
The multi-award-winning actress was born on 7 November 1978 in North West, South Africa. No doubt she joins a host of several actors who looks younger than their actual age. After all, maybe it’s a Gomora plug given the fact that Thembe Seete, who plays Gladys, once saw herself trending after her actual age shocked Mzansi. In the mix of her trends, she shared some anti ageing tips that impressed Mzansi.
