Who Is Clement Maosa and What Is His Age Now?
Clement Maosa is a South African actor, lawyer, musician, entrepreneur, model, and radio DJ. He is currently 34 years old. Maosa was born on May 9 1988 in Polokwane, Limpopo. He was, however, raised in a town called Bochum (also called Senwabarwana) in the Blouberg Local Municipality of the Capricorn District Municipality in the Limpopo province.
The Skeem Saam has a younger brother and two sisters. They all grew up together in Bochum. Further details about his family background, childhood, and siblings’ current whereabouts are under the radar.
He received his elementary and high school studies in a village called Ga-Rammutla, in Capricorn District Municipality, Limpopo. It was while he was in high school that he changed his initial plans of becoming a soldier. He, instead, decided to become a great actor.
The actor attended the University of Limpopo, where he studied law. The particular year he graduated is not public knowledge.
Who Are Clement Maosa’s Parents?
Clement is the son of South African parents, Mr. and Mrs. Maosa. Their first names are not available, and both of them have reportedly passed away. Before their passing, they gave their children the best training any parents would give their kids.
Apart from their names, their exact occupations were not public knowledge. Clement hardly talks about his parents publicly. However, he once mentioned that he wished he could be given just one day to see and chat with his parents because he missed them greatly.
How Clement Maosa’s Acting Career Began
Maosa launched his acting career in 2011 in the popular South African television series Skeem Saam. He received a call from the producers of the show after a successful audition asking him to join other actors in the show. He traveled from Limpopo to another city for the audition after finding out about the audition on Facebook.
Since the first season of the show (which began airing in 2011), he has been playing Zamokuhle “Kwaito” Seakamela. His character is a smart teenage kid who has a keen interest in poetry and enjoys reading and writing.
Though Kwaito was born into an average family, he does all to his best abilities to impress his mother, who loves him so much. One of the things that often make him sad is the fact he has no one to call his father.
Maosa’s performance on the show has been exceptional right from the first season. He joined Skeem Saam at the age of 23, and for over a decade now, he’s been doing a fantastic job.
Skeem Saam is the only TV role Clement has starred in. However, he has other hustles through which he makes money. He is a radio DJ, model, and artist. He also describes himself on his Instagram bio as an entrepreneur, farm owner, and brand ambassador.

Although the actor hardly makes public statements about the woman that gave birth to his son for reasons best known to him, it has never stopped him from showing the world how cute his son is on his Instagram page.
The musician has been together for some years now. He proposed to Kamo during his 30th colorful birthday, but since then, nothing has been heard about the two sealing their love officially.
