Loko Moloko is a South African artist manager and actress best known for being a contestant on the third season of the Mzansi Magic reality competition television series Big Brother Mzansi, in 2014. She placed third on the show.

She made her screen acting debut in the soapie Rhythm City, in June 2015.

Big Brother Bio

Describing herself as grounded, experimental, open-minded, analytical, committed and beautiful, Loko loves dancing, lives in Kempton Park and is an artist manager for a band. She previously appeared on TV in Mzansi Magic's Our Perfect Wedding during her cousin's wedding.

Loko bites her nails when stressed, dislikes compulsive liars, people giving her advice when she hasn't asked for it and when people don't practice what they preach.

She prefers being around positive, like-minded people and says the women in her life are her role models. "Perseverance is the one characteristic I absorbed from them. And we all got it from our parents." Loko also reveals that her mom is one of her best friends.

Addicted to TV series, especially Modern Family, Loko also tunes in to Tamar and Vince, Trisha and Jerry Springer. She relaxes by reading 'power' literature, walking and listening to music from Jimmy Dludlu, Dave Koz, Jonathan Butler and Die Antwoord among others.

On screen she admires Sofia Vergara, Vivica A. Fox and Tyler Perry. Loko has competed in hip hop dance competitions and performed hip hop professionally. She speaks English, Afrikaans, Setswana, Sepedi, Sesotho and Zulu.

For holidays Loko likes the beautiful blue beaches of Mozambique though she'd love to visit Turkey for the shoes and fashion.

Loko wanted to be on Big Brother Mzansi because, "I find it intriguing how one can identify the weaknesses of others and play it up as one's strength to eliminate the competition. After years of research, I think I can do that effectively to ensure that I win".

She says that audiences should watch her because, "What you see is not what you get with me. I'm smarter than I look so the contestants won't see what's coming. And I know how to stir up drama...people love drama. I will play the game the way it's meant to be played. Strategically and excitingly. The audience should know that Loko is here to play the game," she says with a wink. "It's nothing personal, it's just business as Donald Trump would say".

Loko believes that the best thing about South Africans is that they are a diverse, loving, talented, rainbow nation which is filled with unlimited growth potential in a variety of fields.
