Moshidi Motshegwa Biography: Age, Career, Net Worth, Husband, Daughter and more

Actress Moshidi Motshegwa age and net worth has left Mzansi awestruck. She has been dupped as the drama queen of late. In recent years she has been making all sorts of headlines with her on set drama. The celebrated South African actress Moshidi Motshegwa is best known for her on-screen character Malefu Mokoena on The River.


If you’re looking for the details of Moshidi Motshegwa’s age, you might be on a long thing – as the saying goes. Where many in her industry have no qualms detailing their ages, Moshidi Motshegwa would rather be quiet on aspects of hers.

We can all agree to the fact that she is older than we thought. Despite playing more senior character roles, she is even older than some of her on-screen roles, surprising to many. Despite keeping her private life under wraps, we have managed to connect the dots about her personal life. The veteran actress was born in 1977, and as of 2021, she is 44-years-old.


Moreover, between July and August 2008, in the SABC2 mini-series Noah’s Ark, Motshegwa performed the leading role of a wealthy Xhosa doctor's daughter known as Uhuru Mokoena. Then, between August and November of the same year, she featured on Where Were You?, an SABC2 game show, as one of the contestant panellists. Since November 2008, she has been working as a judge on So You Think You’re Funny!, an SABC1 reality competition talent search, together with comedian David Kau.

Net Worth

In the backdrop of her take-home salary Mzansi seems to be stunned with her net worth. She is filthy rich and arguably one of the richest star actresses to have graced our screens. As of 2021, the veteran actress has an estimated net worth of R10 million.

We can all agree that she is living large and keeping up with her celebrity status. On Isono, she stars alongside Mzansi’s finest, Nthati Moshesh, who stars as Mother Mary. The star-studded cast also includes Rami Cheune, who plays the role of Jumina.


She might be a popular actress, but a lot about Moshidi Motshegwa’s life is just not out there. One of these is the issue of her husband. On the subject, she has been mostly quiet, and we can’t determine her marital status at the moment.

You may want to stay tuned for an update, though. However, in one of her flick, she had played the role of a woman who lost her husband to death.


Last we checked, Moshidi Motshegwa has just a child – a girl. Once again, Moshidi Motshegwa accentuates her reputation for keeping aspects of her life private with her child. The name of her child has not been made public.

One apparent thing is that there’s a serious bond between mother and daughter. Moshidi Motshegwa’s style of parenting will certainly please many out there. According to her, parents must let the girl child know that she is loved and enough.

Moshidi Motshegwa The River

After five years of being off-screen, Moshidi landed a role back on The River airing on Mzansi Magic. As one of The River cast members, she played the role of Malefu who lost her husband to the cold hands of death, and as a result, she went through several struggles including dealing with a criminal son. While talking to Move! during an interview session about The River soapie, as published on Press reader, she said: “The honesty, simplicity and truth of the story blew me away. This is a South African story that is seldom told.”

But unfortunately, she had to leave, and a reason adduced to this was partly because of the strained relationship which she had with Larona Moagi, her on-screen daughter. Then, there was another information that she did not return to The River because she was underpaid.

Rhythm City

Rhythm City is another popular Mzansi flick and one that featured Moshidi Motshegwa. She had played the role of Naomi. However, after the role, she disappeared from the limelight.
