Bio

Africa Tsoai is a South African actor best known for his role as Mr. Maputla in the SABC1 drama series Skeem Saam.

Africa was born in Hebron-Graskop in Mpumalanga, a place just below God's Window. He grew up with his granny, uncles, cousins and extended families as parents.

After matriculating, Africa studied graphic design at Rudolph College in Johannesburg. He was a self-taught fine arts enthusiast, and got his diploma in 1989 and did a sound engineering course at Inhouse Records in Randburg in 2000.

Highlights of Africa's career include starting his small business in 1996, his showbiz highlights include ramp work as a model, photographic stills and extensive extra work in international movies and SABC dramas.

Behind the scenes he is involved in music, transportation, voice overs, translating, producing and copywriting.

Africa has four children. His grandmother is his inspiration; she always gave very good advice. He gets angry when people take advantage of him.

He has plenty of unfulfilled ambitions and is not afraid of anything. In life, he knows death and disappointment are 'for sure'. He regrets not saving more money.

In his spare time he enjoys fishing and attending soccer matches. He listens to Thobela fm, as it represents his heritage. His favourite movie is Heat. Mind Your Language is his favourite TV show and his favourite movie stars are Ving Rhames, Roseline Morapedi and Lydia Mokgokoloshi.

Africa enjoys reading about nature conservation because it brings his mind back to reality. If granted three wishes he says they would be "to be healthy, wealthy and have lots of respect."
