Katlego Maboe - Success breeds fame


Katlego Maboe is fast becoming a household name in South Africa. He is host of the SABC3 breakfast show Expresso and a sought-after TV presenter, singer, voice-over artist, master of ceremonies, model and actor.

Born and bred in Potchefstroom, he certainly has come a long way since completing his B Com degree in Chartered Accounting in 2007 at the NWU.

Fluent in Afrikaans, English and Setswana, he effortlessly navigates any given situation and has no trouble communicating with people from all walks of life. Among his many accolades, Katlego was crowned the most stylish male celebrity in South Africa at the 2014 YOU Spectacular Awards, and featured in the 2015 South African Menswear Week modelling for Presidential Shirts.

His biggest passion by far has always been music, a burning passion he has fueled since becoming a member of the North West Children’s Choir in 1998. His love of singing manifested itself in his involvement in the well-known South African a capella boy-band, Flip a Coin, as one of the group’s lead vocalists and beat-boxers.

Appointed a HOPE Cape Town Goodwill Ambassador in 2014, he is regularly involved in philanthropic projects that focus on education and health.
