South Africa has seen the exhibition of Thahane's talent on numerous local productions on local tv. She has had roles on tv films like eKasi, Galz and Saints and Sinners. It is however her role on Skeem Saam that made her a prominent fixture on Mzansi tv.

Thahane then made waves on Mzansi Magic's telenovela The Queen where her acting received praise. She had to cut that adventure short as she decided to pursue her education and moved to New York to study.(as Amo on The Queen)


Thahane in 2019 told 'Drum magazine' that she suffered racism during her time in America. She recounted how at one time a lady switched seats on the subway when she went to sit next to her and how her Russian roommate used to sanitise items in their room after Thahane touched them.

"It wasn't long before I started experiencing racism when people found out I was from Africa. They made comments about my hair, the way I looked. One lady even moved when I came to sit next to her on the subway."

This however did not detract from her experience and despite the challenges Thahane graduated with flying colors making her family proud.(during her time in New York)
