The actress plays the role of one of the most loved characters on Skeem Saam. You can't mention the show without expressing your favourite Rachel Kunutu moments and these are just a few things that we've come to love and appreciate about the young actress.

Earlier on in the month the DSTV Viewers Choice Awards announced that Lesego was nominated in the favourite actress category and upon hearing the news we not only knew that she deserved to be nominated but that she also deserves to win the award.

Here are a few reasons why we think Lesego deserves to walk away with that award.

Skeem Saam is her first TV gig

From what we've come to learn, Skeem Saam is Lesego's first acting gig on television. Although she comes from an Arts background, Lesego hit the ground running with her character on the youth drama show and she hasn't looked back ever since. It's quite rare for an actress to have a first gig become one of her best gigs especially if you've just started acting on TV. Now that's what we call talent.

The Rachel Kunutu character is one of the most "memeable" characters we know on local television. Chances are there is a Rachel Kunutu meme for every mood in the week.

Cultural Impact

Believe it or not but if you find yourself wearing big frame shades, people call it the Rachel Kunutu look, even Muvhango actress Liteboho Molise has caught on to the look.

Even characters from 1 Magic's The River know whats up.

So please guys, go out there and vote for Lesego, we all know she deserves this accolade.
