Masango had her secondary school education at Mduku High School ROCKS. Upon completing her studies, she proceeded to the University of South Africa for her tertiary education. She has plans of becoming a successful entertainer in the nearest future.

She Began Making Waves In Her Mid-Teens

Kealeboga has clearly shown that there’s no minimum age to stardom and success ever since she burst onto the scene. She began her acting career before the age of 18, and it’s been an awesome experience for her since then. Besides gaining immense popularity for her gig, she has met with and also shared screentime with notable actors through her role.

The fast-rising actress’s exact age when she joined Rhythm City is not known to the media as she has not shared her journey to the acting world publicly. Similarly, it’s not clear if she has acting experience before fame, but from every indication, it appears Rhythm City is her debut TV project.

Masango’s character in the series, Zinhle Ngobese, is quite an interesting person to watch. She is the daughter of the political heavyweight Khulekani Ngobese and his wife Nandi Ngobese, as well as a spoilt child who spiraled out of control after the death of her beloved brother, Theo. Shattered by the painful death, she became depressed and later turned to drugs and alcohol.

Kealeboga Masango did not play her role like a first-time actor – she was just too good at her role, and even exceeded people’s expectations. She did an amazing job both in making her character a fan favorite and popular. Through Zinhle, she was able to show viewers what a versatile performer she is – and her fans can’t wait to see what she does next.

It is worthy to note that Masango was the youngest of the cast in Rhythm City. The second youngest was up-and-coming actor Tshiamo Molobi, who featured as an orphan (Lefa), who ended up finding a family with the Khuse’s.

Kealeboga Masango Is Currently Working On How To Expand Her Resume


Kealeboga Masango has established herself as an actress to watch with just one role. Her name now rings a bell both within and outside of the entertainment world. She equally has a lot of loyal fans, as well as the attention of filmmakers on her side. But the young lady does not want to stop there; she has plans of improving her craft and building her fast-growing acting career to an enviable height.

All of these plans, we believe, are still being processed and promises to be mind-blowing. It is not known if Masango has plans of branching out to other areas in the entertainment field. So far, her only known TV project is Rhythm City as she hasn’t been part of any other local production, but her fans are already excited about her impressive resume.

This beautiful and talented young lady may not have appeared in an avalanche of local TV projects in the industry, but the fame Rhythm City has brought her way obviously shows how hard work pays off. She looks forward to scoring more roles, especially international roles, and also working with the best filmmakers across the world.

She Prefers To Keep Her Family Members Away From The Spotlight 

Kealeboga Masango is one of those people who believe in doing the right thing at the right time. Some time ago, she disclosed that the reason why she does not have an active Instagram account is that she was a minor. Obviously, she wanted to join the platform ready and at the right time. This partly explains why a lot of information about her personal life and professional career is largely unknown.

Masango is very secretive as well. She loves keeping a low-profile on matters that do not pertain to her acting career. Till now, she has successfully kept information about her family under the wraps.

The names of her parents, their occupation, as well as her family background, are currently under the radar. It is not known if the Rhythm City actress has siblings or is an only child. Masango hasn’t shared any picture of her family members neither has she opened up about her position in her family.
