Hanging Out With Clement
Jerry Mofokeng

In this episode of Hanging Out with Clement Manyathela, legendary actor Dr Jerry Mofokeng wa Makhetha talks about his career, childhood and latest book.

With a career spanning more than 31 years, Jerry Mofokeng wa Makhetha says his mother did not understand when he said he wants to study drama.

Speaking to Clement Manyathela, Mofokeng wa Makhetha said his mother said he must be a lawyer and become as was good at preaching and debating.

He says in his career he only started getting paid in 1994.

Acting does something for you inside, before you get paid, before you get reviews before you get awards it just builds you up inside. There is something that psychologists call self-actualisation, in other words when you have found your DNA and the DNA becomes your livelihood.

I loved Neo Mokgethi on _Scandal, I enjoyed Neo Mokgethi,_ they wrote the script but I owned the scripts. I put Sta-soft and did all the things to them especially when I was with Kgomotso Christopher.
