Skeem Saam fans took to social media to react to Thursday night’s episode after seeing Charles Kunutu’s house, his wife Salamina, and Letetswe’s siblings.
Masilo Magoro is a South African actor best known for his role as Morena Lerole, the father of Baksteen (Innocent Masuku), in the SABC1 drama series Tshisa, in 2012.
He also appeared in the trailer for the musical film 16 Bars as a detective and played the role of Vusi in the Tim Greene film Skeem, both in 2011.
In 2013 he had a major role in the second half of the second season of the SABC1 drama series Skeem Saam as Charles Kunutu, Rachel’s uncle whose mission is to get revenge on the Maputla family.
His first few years of primary education were in Lenyenye, Tzaneen with my two older brothers and his mother who worked as nurse for Dr Mamphela Ramphele. They then moved to Johannesburg and joined his father.
In the mid eighties, while studying at Thabo high school in Naledi, Soweto, he got involved with a political student body that also did cultural events. This is where he first tasted stage as a performer, playing a soldier of the old South African regime.
Masilo studied drama at Fuba Academy for three years and later a one year part time course with Market Theatre Lab. A highlight of his career was playing Sgt Spikiri in a stage play at a school drama festival where he got his first standing ovation.
His most memorable achievement was his involvement as a story developer, crew member and performer in the movie Gomora Hustle.
Masilo’s favourite music is South African gospel; he is co-founder of a gospel group in Lenyenye called Barorisi ba lentswe. He enjoys comedy and played the role of Vusi in Skeem.
Masilo says he is fortunate to have worked with some of his favourite actors, Lydia Mokgokoloshi, Shoki Sebotsane, Africa Tsoai, Harriet Manamela and John Morapama in Skeem Saam.
His recent favourite TV show is S’Gidla Waar and he loves stand up comedy, specifically comedians Trevor Noah, Steve Harvey and David Kau.
In Masilo’s leisure time he does a bit of reading, writing his own script, and watching movies with his wife Pat and their daughter. He hopes that one day he will be blessed with a son and wants to teach drama to the youth
