Bio

Dingaan Mokebe is a South African actor, singer, voice artist and television presenter best known for his starring role as flamboyant yuppie investment broker James Motsamai in the SABC2 soapie Muvhango, joining the cast in 2003.

Mokebe made his television debut as monosyllabic Back Of The Moon barman Dingaan, who fears and respects his boss, Sunny Jacobs, on the SABC1 soapie Generations in 1998. He played the role for three years but was fired in 2000 after voicing displeasure with his character's story arc on the show.

Initially cast as an extra who was very rarely seen on Generations, his character suddenly won R10-million in the national lottery. Despite his newfound wealth, however, the character remained in the background working as a barman, which confused viewers and the actor himself.

When Mokebe voiced reservations about his lack of character development he was released from his contract. After auditioning unsuccessfully for a number of stage plays he landed a starring role on Muvhango, where he has remained ever since.

In the interim he has appeared in TV dramas such as Nna Sajene Kokobela and Umoja.

Dingaan was one of eight celebrities who competed in the second season of the SABC2 reality competition Strictly Come Dancing, in 2006. He and his partner Phemelo Mabuse were voted out fourth.

He was later a presenter on the Community Builder Show and has featured in the numerous commercials for clients such as Smirnoff Red, Nedbank Million Dollar Challenge (as a ballboy collecting stray golf balls), Motsweding FM, Kelloggs, Coca Cola Mega Millions and Klipdrift.

In 2013 he replaced Duncan Senye and Vuyelwa Booi as the sole host of the SABC2 consumer rights show Speak Out, starting with Season 6. He continued hosting for three seasons, until 2016.
