INTERNET sensation Paballo Kgware is on her way to the top.

This as she has joined popular SABC1 soapie Uzalo in a cameo role, playing the alter ego rich makoti that everyone loves on social media.

Speaking to Daily Sun, Paballo said she was overjoyed when she was asked to be a part of the show.

“Acting is an industry that I have been trying to get into. So when I got the call from producers of the show, I was overjoyed because that meant I am starting to be seen by shows that I dream of being a part of,” she said.

The 22-year-old graduate from AFDA, who made her first appearance on Wednesday 24 November, believes the role was the beginning of a fruitful career.

“We all have to start somewhere, and we can’t land major roles as our first acting job. That is why I did not turn away the role because even the smallest one, in any TV show, is important. Hopefully this will open more doors for me,” she said.


With over 800 000 followers on TikTok, Paballo believes in the power of social media.

She shared that had it not been for the platform, she would not have been noticed by big productions.

“TikTok is a good tool that can make you. After graduating, I found myself bored with nothing to do. Then I created an account on TikTok, not knowing that I was creating my own big break, hence I advise people to not take social media lightly.”

Although making videos might seem easy to do, Paballo shared with the People’s Paper that a lot of creativity went into creating them.

“I sometimes go through a creative block. But once you have an idea of how you want your content to look like, it becomes easier. It also becomes easier with time because some of the people I imitate are in our lives every day.”
