OPINION: Kwaito's old pictures will leave you Sh0cked - (from zero to hero)

Pictures: Kwaito's transformation got Mzansi talking

His success comes from patience and perseverance, had he not been patient with himself Kwaito wouldn’t have come this far. An old picture of him standing next to a donkey vs him now that he has made it in life was shared on social media to inspire people. It really shows that with determination you can go far.

Imagine: Clement Maosa

Clement Maosa is a popular South African actor, radio DJ, model and musician. He is best known for his role as Zamokuhle Seakamela in the popular SABC 1 soap opera, “Skeem Saam”. He is also known as Kwaito on the show. He has played the role for over 8 seasons of the popular show.

Skeem Saam

Joining skeem Saam—Clement Moasa was playing Kwaito—A 19-year-old boy who had a fair share of life's struggles. He exuded confidence and a sense of purpose. His love for education and writing shined both in and out of the classroom. He was wise beyond his years and his exceptional performance in the classroom made him a favourite among teachers in Turfloop, but wasn't aware that university is a completely different place of learning.

He was an excellent reader, a complete sucker for good stories that transport him to other worlds. His hard-working attitude was rooted in growing up in the home of a single parent who never allows her children to give anything less than their absolute best. His proudest moment was winning a trip to London and getting his short story published. Kwaito’s Matric year was disrupted by an abusive relationship with Lelo Mthiyane, who revealed herself to be a sociopath.

Against all the odds, he succeeded in doing well in life, and arrived at Gauteng University full of hope for the future. But Lelo’s appearance in Joburg has opened up old wounds, and it seems that she is far from finished with him. His flaw is his moral irrationality.

He desperately needs a strong male role model to guide him into adulthood, but his father Seakamela is nowhere to be found.

Eventually, he joined the University of Limpopo to study law as per the desires of his parents, who both passed away in 2007 while he was still studying. The loss hit him hard and he was forced to be the breadwinner of the family together with his grandmother, which required lots of sacrifice from him.

Clement Maosa took to his social media to dedicate his recent achievement to his grandmother. The star shared beautiful picture of him and his grandmother on his birthday, Clement told the story of how she was his pillar of strength and the woman who made everything possible.

Maosa didn't only end up as a successful actor but he obtained a Law Degree at the University of Limpopo. "I even graduated Bachelor of laws at the University of Limpopo because nothing could stop a willing and resilient spirit."

In his journey Maosa also ventured into music. He features on the King Monada track, Good Life. And he also has a single called Rhythm of Your Heart. A lot of his fans were surprised when he ventured into music but it’s always been something he loves. As if that’s not enough he was also seen around attending dancing classes and tutoring.

In those early days, he also got to meet South African stars like DJ Bongz where his magnificent dancing skills came to the fore. Eventually, he got his big break with Skeem Saam in 2011 and he has not looked back in the face of success since. In addition, he hosts birthday parties for celebrities in South Africa.

What does Clement Maosa do for a living? Did you know that Clement wanted to be a soldier when he was a young boy? All this changed, however, when he got to high school. Did you also know that he had to travel from Limpopo for Skeem Saam auditions?
