At the age of 20, Bofelo William Molebatsi has established himself as one of the country’s best comedians.
Better known by his stage name ‘Mawilla’, the Kanye native has only been in the industry for just over a year but already has more than 60, 000 followers on Facebook despite not having a page sponsor.
What motivated you to pursue a career in comedy?
I didn’t do well at school, I didn’t have a job and everyone at home was going to work.
One day, I was bored and decided to take my friend’s camera, shot a video and uploaded it on Facebook.
Joel ‘Ntsoro’ Keitumele was also my motivation during his time.
When did you start comedy and what reactions did you get from people?
I started comedy last May and people started commenting on how ugly I was but everything has been good so far.
I get gigs and also do stand up comedy now and then.
