You just know when a show features her it will be a hit! We asked our readers which of her 3 famous roles are they loving the most, so here they are.

Muvhango - Meme

Tsholofelo gained viewers hearts with her role as Meme on the SABC 2 drama series, Muvhango. She played a scheming, conniving and gold-digging Meme who always taunted her former cast mate Thandaza, played by Sindi Dlathu.

Speaking on her role years back, she told ZAlebs that people could not differentiate between her character and her as a real life person.

"I have had so many incidents of elderly people approaching me and asking me why I always taunted Thandaza on the show. I’d be doing my shopping and all of a sudden I’d just get a lady approaching me and asking me why I give Thandaza such a hard time.

"I usually just laugh and explain that it’s just a character I’m playing and it’s not necessarily me. People are then taken aback at how much of a nice person I am.”

The River - Rakgadi Kedibone

With this character, Tsholo showed off her versatility and killed it even further. The star received numerous rounds of applauds with her character and how she nailed it. Every emotional scene she gave it her all and brought it to life.

Fans were particularly unimpressed by the writers who gave Kedibone a man and made her fall knee deep in love with him, only to snatch him away from her before their big day.

Even actress Flo Masebe was left stunned by her performance just by watching that story line alone, "Dear @Tsholo_Matshaba, We see your light. Thank you so much for sharing your outstanding craft with us," she said.

Kings Of Joburg - Detective Jazmine 

When The Fergusons released their casting for their Netflix series Kings Of Joburg, we just knew Tsholo was going to be given a bada*s role and NAIL IT! She played the feisty and inquisitive Detective Jazmine on the series, who had the Masire brother's on the palm of her hands.

Well of course there were a lot of plot twists here and there, but her killing the role, did not go unnoticed.

Here's what our readers had to say about her acting skills:

Thobani Thobzar Mdlalose: "I've always loved her and how she potrays all her characters"
