He is also known for hosting the morning talk show Expresso on SABC 3 since its inception in 2010.

 He became a member of the North West Children's Choir in 1998 while attending Potchefstroom Central School.

He matriculated from Potchefstroom High School for Boys in 2004, and completed a Bachelor's degree in Chartered Accounting at North-West University in 2017.

Despite all the drama and scandal Maboe was in the past year , he has finally found himself again and he has recovered from it all thus he is back on social media according to the Citizen news paper Katlego is ready to take control of his life once again.

With optimistic posts on his Instagram posts it's pretty clear the past is behind him and he has found himself once again after a really swarthy past year and it seems he is going to make an epic comeback to the limelight .

A lesson to be learned from Katlego 's story is that forgiveness makes way for progress in a person 's life and that's exactly what Katlego did he was forgiven and he forgave himself now it's time to pick up from where he left off and make the most out of his second chance.
