Katlego Danke is a South African actress known for her role as Dineo Mashaba in the SABC1 soap-drama Generations. Katlego holds a BA in Theatre and Performance from the University of Cape Town. We sometimes feel that she isn’t celebrated enough, considering the unbelievable contribution she’s made to our entertainment industry.
Here are five reasons why we love her.
1. Ages Like Fine Wine
Can you believe that Katlego Danke is 41-years-old turning 42 this year? It’s still hard for us to believe as it is for you. This woman just ages like fine wine. In 2006 she was voted as one of FHM’s 100 sexiest women in the world.
2. She’s Talented & Consistent
There is no disagreeing her talent, she’s by far one Mzansi’s most-talented and most-stable television actresses. Her unbelievable work has earned her a Golden Horn Award for Best Actress in a TV Soap. This was during her time on Generations.
Danke’s latest role as Onthatile on Mzansi’s Magic’s newest hit series Gomora just proves how talented she is. She has been doing for almost 20 years and has done integrity to each and every role. From her days on Backstage up until now.
3 She’s Private
Unlike most celebrities, Katlego has always kept her private life private. That has kept us guessing for years about her love life and family. Even on her social media, she doesn’t reveal a lot.
4. Down To Earth
Danke is one of the most humble celebrities we know, unlike most celebrities with her qualifications she doesn’t let her success get to her head.
5. She’s Got A Beautiful Heart
Katlego has a heart of gold. The actress really loves her family and shows that over her social media from time. She’s also been honest about her support for women’s rights. A true leader.
