Fans may easily label her as uptight when they see her as her Muvhango character.
Actress Liteboho Molise, on the other hand, is anything but. She enjoys not just acting but also rapping.
Sharing the stage with famed Motswako rapper HHP, dropping bars to Harambe during a concert in Lesotho in 2014, she claims, was the happiest day of her life.
Liteboho talks to Drum on the Muvhango set during her lunch break.
“It was Jabba the Hutt; can you imagine how exciting that was?” People think I'm tense because of Tebogo, but I'm not. I don't think I'm particularly interesting, but I'm not as tense as they think. I'm a big fan of Jay Z, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem's old school hip hop. Locally,I love HHP’s music as well as old school Khuli Chana. I listen to a bit of Cassper too,” she says
Another thing people did not know about her is that she loves to dance.
“I am really good dancer, even though I think I am a bit rusty right now, but I can dance. I need to get in front of a mirror and practice some Amapiano moves or the pouncing cat,” she laughs.
If she was not an actress, Liteboho would definitely pursue a career in politics.
“Actually, I think maybe when I am older, I can get into politics. I am very interested in politics,” she says.
She has been on Muvhango since 2012 and her character has developed from being a domestic worker to the mayor’s wife and she has her eyes set on the chieftaincy
“It's been a fantastic journey. When a character transforms as Tebogo has, each stage feels like a new persona to you as an actor, and it forces you to channel different people into the role. Tebogo has always piqued my interest.
“Tebogo has taught me to pursue my goals. I secretly wish I had her drive and fearlessness because she doesn't care who you are, she will let you know if you get in her way in any way. She is obsessed with the bottom line.”
She was motivated to succeed when she initially came on the Muvhango set and did not allow the language difficulties hinder her.
“I come from Lesotho where we only speak Sesotho so I did not know any of the other languages that were spoken on the show, not just TshiVenda. Then I decided to read the whole script because it is in English so that I do not only go on cue, but I also know what the other person is saying too. I also spent a lot of time with my colleagues off set and they would teach me how to pronounce certain words and that helped tremendously, even with our chemistry on camera. I was just very eager to learn.”
She's now taking on a new role in her life. Lingashoni, 1Magic's latest melodrama, was announced last month and will premiere on March 22. On the show, she will portray Seipati Moeketsi, a farm worker.
When asked about her forthcoming part, Liteboho feels that the audience would enjoy this new character.
She exclaims, "I am really excited about my new role."
"She is a far nicer individual than Tebogo. People have a love-hate connection with Tebogo, I've discovered over the years. Some individuals wish they had an alter ego like her, while others are simply annoyed by her. Seipati, on the other hand, is a lovely lady. She is a year or two older than Tebogo and is dedicated to protecting her family.
