In honour of this amazing woman, here are five reasons why we love her.

1. Ages Like Fine Wine

Can you believe that Katlego Danke is 41-years-old turning 42 this year? It’s still hard for us to believe as it is for you. This woman just ages like fine wine. In 2006 she was voted as one of FHM's 100 sexiest women in the world.

There is no denying her talent, she’s by far one Mzansi’s most-talented and most-consistent television actresses. Her incredible work has earned her a Golden Horn Award for Best Actress in a TV Soap. This was during her time on Generations.

Danke’s latest role as Onthatile on Mzansi’s Magic’s newest hit series Gomora just proves how talented she is. She has been doing for almost 20 years and has done justice to each and every role. From her days on Backstage up until now. Can we give this woman her lifetime achievement-award already?

3. She’s Private

Unlike most celebrities, Katlego has always kept her private life private. That has kept us guessing for years about her love life and family. Even on her social media, she doesn’t reveal a lot.

Danke is one of the most humble celebrities we know, unlike most celebrities with her credentials she doesn’t let her success get to her head.
