Moving to Joburg was a scary thing for him, imagine knowing what you want but not knowing where to start. The city of gold can be a pretty scary place if you’re not from here, there's just too much going on.

When he arrived in Johannesburg on his own, he moved in with his grandparents who had already been living here for years. He started studying while he went to auditions and like many other actors in the industry, it was not an easy journey.

Many doors were closed in his face but with a drive for success and a hunger for greatness he kept going. Luck later took a turn for the best when he landed a cameo role on Tshisa in the early 2000’s. He then became a YOTV presenter directly after that.

After tons of auditions, roles slowly started rolling in. Tiisetso has been on Mzanisi’s most popular dramas and he is now on Isithembiso. He plays the role of Ali Makatkat.  Speaking about the role he said, “it was easy for me to portray this character because I can be soft too."

Tiisetso recently became a father and though he prefers to keep his private life out of the public eye, he lets us in on enjoying fatherhood. Although he has a lot of balls in the air, he always makes time for family. He is also a businessman and wants to focus on growing his business and landing even bigger roles in the future.
