About

Katlego Moswane Maboe is a well-known face in South African television. The handsome TV presenter has had a colourful career in music and as a stage host. Though educated to be an accountant, Katlego’s artistic talent shined through, right from his college days. Katlego Maboe has been a part of many charitable events too. Let’s discover a little more about him.

Personal Life and education

The star was born in the Ikageng township of South Africa, close to Potchefstroom, on October 29, 1986. Katlego Maboe, aged 35, graduated from high school in 2004 and enrolled in a bachelor’s in Chartered Accounting from North-West University in 2007.

Katlego Maboe is trilingual, he can speak Afrikaans, English and Setswana fluently. 

His interest in music was obvious from an early age. In 1998, he sang in the North West Children’s Choir. That love for singing continued during his college days, where he became a part of Flip A Coin, a South African acapella boy band. Here, he performed as a singer and a beatboxer.

Career

Katlego Maboe’s height of 5’10”, his looks and communication abilities render him perfect for a television career. He got it when in 2009, he signed up for a program created by the lifestyle magazine, DEKAT. The show was in Afrikaans. After this, he became a co-host on the SABC2s lifestyle magazine program 50/50, followed by the Expresso Breakfast Show on SABC3. Here, he won the hearts of many fans and is considered to be the most popular of all the Expresso presenters. 

He has also done other TV gigs. He hosted the 2017 South African Film and Television Awards, the Afrikaanse Taal- en Kultuurvereniging (Afrikaans Language, and Culture Association or ATKV). The coolest gigs we’ve seen him take on would be the Tropika Island of Treasure in 2018 and the Huisgenoot Tempo Toekennings. He also hosted season two of our favourite show, Strictly Come Dancing.

Away from the glare of the camera, Katlego is a chartered accountant. He studied to be a CA but pursued a career in entertainment instead.

Family, Kids, and Relationships

Who is Katlego Maboe’s girlfriend?

Monique Muller, Katlego Maboe’s girlfriend since 2016, got married after a one-night stand, as told by Muller. Though there are rumours that Monique Muller and Katlego Maboe’s wedding happened secretly, most people believe that they are just live-in partners. Although the marriage had its fair share of controversies, they had a happy union together for many years. Monique, Katlego Maboe’s wife, bore him a son named Phoenix Katlego Maboe. Until 2020, the trio lived together in Katlego Maboe’s house in Johannesburg.

Things fell apart when Muller learnt that Maboe cheated on her. She found out when she contracted an STD. Knowing that she had not been with anyone but Katlego, Monique knew her husband was having an affair. Things unravelled for Katlego from here. He was suspended from presenting the Expresso Show, allegations of abuse against his spouse surfaced and Maboe lost his deal with OUTsurance. He was the face of the brand and got replaced with Elana Afrika after these allegations surfaced. The two have since separated.

When was Katlego Maboe’s son born?

Katlego Maboe’s son, Phoenix, was born on June 26, 2018. He is currently three years old.

Who were Katlego Maboe’s parents?

Katlego Maboe moved to Potchefstroom in North West Province in 1898 after his parents got divorced. Though nothing is known about Katlego Maboe’s father, his mother, Beauty Maboe, was a teacher near Lichtenburg.  

Katlego Maboe’s father figure was his late uncle, who took him under his wings after his parents divorced. His single mom and his loving grandparents raised Katlego and his two sisters.

News and Scandals

What was Katlego Maboe’s scandal about?

Katlego Maboe was arrested in January for being in contempt of court. The arrest is alleged to be related to a harassment case opened by his former partner Monique Muller after he purportedly violated a protection order she had been granted against him.

Katlego Maboe’s OUTsurance contract cancelled

Following news of his infidelity, Katlego Maboe’s OUTsurance contract got cancelled. OUTsurance distanced themselves from Katlego Maboe by pulling all his advertisements off the air. 

Espresso, too, issued a statement. They confirmed that Katlego would not be on air pending the outcome of the inquiry.

The scandal brought Katlego Maboe’s family into disrepute. Will we ever find out what happened? Or what drove him to commit such acts? We guess we’ll have to wait for the day that Katlego Maboe spills the tea. 

Katlego Maboe’s Charity Work

Katlego rode the Cape Town Cycle Tour with Doctor Michael Mol in 2011 and 2013 to raise funds for charity. In 2014, he was appointed as a HOPE Cape Town Goodwill Ambassador. He worked on projects that focused on providing health and education in Cape Town.

Car

He owns a Mercedes Benz. He shared this on Instagram with this caption: “2018 is truly showing off and my travel Tuesday just got an upgrade. Looking forward to hitting the road with my new baby! Honoured to be part of the Mercedes family…” 

We’ve also seen him try out other cars like Range Rover, Jaguar.

House

We’ve seen Katlego pose in posh studios, hotels and other fancy buildings, none of which sadly includes his house. For what it’s worth, Katlego is one of South Africa’s most revered entertainers. His net worth of about $1 million will definitely allow him to live in some of the best houses money can buy.

Net worth

As of 2021, Katlego Maboe’s net worth is estimated to have hit the $1 million mark.
