Dineo Moekesti is one of the most hardworking personalities in the entertainment industry. We first met the 26-year-old beauty when she replaced Nonhle Thema as a presenter on O Access and she has since managed to solidify herself as a household name.

In a recent interview with Anele Mdoda, the star got candid about being bullied in high school because of her famous mom, "I'm going to be very honest with you, there were also struggles of bullying around that time. Yeah, so you in this space as a kid where you trying to hone this creativity that you got but you also have challenges because your mom (Kg Moeketsi) is quite big and other children don't know how to deal with that."

She then went on to say that she was bullied because people were jealous of her, "It feels like it's never ending for the most part. It's not like you going there and you're being pushed around like it's in the movies, it's not like that. But at the same time, black girls are often prone to violence because it's such a 'norm' in the black communities. Their default setting is, 'I'm going to threaten you with violence'." she said.

Dineo is in a much better place, she is one of the principle actors on Mzansi Magic's The Queen.
