The 37-year-old actress and slay queen, Tebogo Thobejane, became the flashpoint of every celebrity conversation when she was revealed to be a cast member of the South Africa TV series, Muvhango. The hot, sexy, and now famous Instagram influencer landed the acting gig, which some of the shows’ fans couldn’t relate with. While some were totally loving her vibe, others were seriously wagging their tongue against her. Whatever you have to say, she is already at the top of her game and has worked hard to get there.
In 2020, while the world’s economy was experiencing a meltdown and so many people were getting broke, Tebogo Thobejane found a way to make the best use of her curvy body to keep her finances bubbling – through the Onlyfans platform. However, seeing her as one of the casts of Muvhango really came as a surprise to many viewers. Many people now want to know how she moved from being a content creator in the controversial platform to becoming an actress in the popular drama series, Muvhango.
Tebogo Thobejane Revealed That She Was 36 In 2019
Before becoming an Onlyfans content creator or a Muvhango star, Tebogo Thobejane has always been one of South Africa’s most popular Instagram slay queens. When she came out to tell fans that she was 36 years old in 2019, many fans were amazed because slay queens of her age were no longer as loud as she was.
How she maintained such an attractive body despite her age and the fact that she is a mother made it more surprising. Beyond being a ‘slay queen,’ Tebogo became an entrepreneur and urged people not to see all Instagram influencers as online prostitutes. She claimed she was not showcasing her sexy body for money but rather selling products and promoting brands.
Tebogo Thobejane had mastered the act of making money from social media that, as of 2019, she was taking home R100,000 per week. According to her, she was in the business of changing the common narrative associated with slay queens. Two years after the revelation about her actual age, Thobejane is still looking as young, sexy, and attractive as she was back then. It just looks like she is not getting any older.
She Also Became Popular For Being Friends With Faith Nketsi
Tebogo Thobejane was born on the 30th of November 1983, in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she also had her primary and secondary school. After her basic education, she moved on to earn a bachelor’s degree in film production from a yet-to-be-revealed tertiary institution. Her father, who is of blessed memory, is one of the co-founders of Black Like Me and Principal Hair Products, and his business indulgence inspired Tebogo’s love for entrepreneurship.
She became popular in South Africa through her friendship with Faith Nketsi, her mentor and business partner. Together, they started a modeling agency called Feline Model Management Company. Her fame and popularity grew as a result of the kind of pictures she uploads on Instagram. Although her relationship with Faith Nketsi has long ended, she managed to maintain the fame that came with it.
Besides promoting other brands on Instagram, she also owns her own brand called Bofa Belts and Slay Kit. She also sells make-up and waist trainers. The IG influencer also owns a company that serves as a link between celebrities and nightclubs called Rush Productions. She has worked with popular African celebrities like Davido, D’banj, and Wizkid.
She Created An Onlyfans Account To Earn Money During The COVID-19 Lockdown
It is no news to anyone that most businesses and individuals faced some financial crisis in 2020 due to the global pandemic and the national lockdown, which came almost without warning. Tebogo Thobejane’s businesses faced similar challenges; clubs were no longer functional due to the COVID-19 prevention measures put in place, and a major source of her income was affected.
So she decided to create an Onlyfans account to earn some money, and in just four months of joining the platform and posting content, she started making close to R200,000 per month. At this time, the Onlyfans platform received an increase in traffic due to the stay-at-home order.
This is massive compared to what other stars on Onlyfans make. A popular Onlyfans creator called Monica Huldt, aka Miss_Swedish_Bella, makes $100,000 per year, which is about R1,449,520 million and R120,793 per month.
She advises young ladies to be careful with what they post on Onlyfans. As someone experienced in the field, she agrees that sometimes money can make people do what they would regret.
What Is Onlyfans?
Onlyfans is a social media platform launched in 2016, where people sell or buy pornographic content. To gain access to a creator that you like, you will have to pay a monthly subscription fee that ranges from $4.99 to $49.99. While those with little or no sex work experience can create an Onlyfans account to post nude videos and pictures for a price, people who use Onlyfans are usually experienced sex workers and porn stars.
The social media platform owners get 20% of all the money a creator makes, while the creator keeps the remaining 80%.
How Tebogo Thobejane From Being An OnlyFans Creator To Being An Actress In Muvhango
To the amazement of everyone, in January 2021, the beautiful Instagram influencer, slay queen, and Onlyfans content creator was announced as one of the casts in one of South Africa’s biggest TV series, Muvhango. This news got many people talking, and social media was practically shut down for Tebogo Thobejane. While many people were excited to have a hotty in the series, others did not really like the idea.
In Muvhango, Tebogo Thobejane plays the role of Belinda, a wedding planner. Although she plays her role well, how she got the role is still a surprise to everyone. This is majorly because she has previously never acted in any movie before, and she studied film production and not theater arts.
Although the original length of time she was meant to stay on the series is unknown, the producers may consider giving her a longer stay because she has become a major interest to fans. It is prevalent for fans to compare celebrities who have something in common, and becoming a celebrity puts Tebogo in the line for some comparison.
The series started comparing her with Buhle Samuels, which did not go down well with her. She asked fans to stop because she was not on the show to replace anyone, and she does not see a reason for the comparison because they are two different people. According to Tebogo Thobejane, she worked hard to be where she is now, and it has taken her more than a decade to get here, and as such, she should not be compared to Buhle Samuels.
As the saying goes, life begins at 40, and for Tebogo Thobejane, it began some years earlier. Despite her age, she doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon, so let’s all be prepared to see her more often on our screens.
