A man without patience and perseverance will never discover his real purpose and reach his fullest potential, he quoted above his photo on social media.

Really looking forward to catching up with my cohort as we will be celebrating this on my birthday. What a way to end 2022 in preparation for 2023.

-- PLAYING PAPI IN LINGASHONI' The former The Queen actor also plays Papi Zulu in 1Magic's telenovela Lingashoni, a show that reflects on betrayal, love, and living a double life.

In an interview with Rise Fm Molamu shares that he loves playing Papi as the storyline is rich and had many layers.

Papi wears rings and chains, which is something that I have only done in theatre and not television. That was a great challenge for me because it is in these dark places that he finds himself in that he tries to navigate through. I'm all about challenges so it was something that I couldn't ignore, he adds.
