MESHACK MAVUSO: ‘PEOPLE LOVED HIM BECAUSE HE LOVED THEM’

The former Durban Gen star Meshack Mavuso attended Mpho Sebeng’s memorial service at Joburg Theatre on Thursday, 9 May.

Mavuso tells The Citizen that the number of people who showed up at Sebeng’s memorial shows what a respectful young man he was.

“This number [of people] proves that he was a respectful young man, he respected everyone he worked with. That’s why you see so many people…people loved him because he loved them.”

“It shows the respect he had for the craft. The respect he had for even us, those who are older than him. He never undermined anyone. He loved the industry, not what comes with the industry…he loved the art form.”

MOTLATSI MAFATSHE: ‘HE WAS SOME SORT OF ANGEL’

House of Zwide actor Motlatsi Mafatshe thanked the Mpho Sebeng family for lending him to the industry.

“It tells you about the kind of person he was. Not everyone is able to come into this industry and make a mark and be loved by everyone…others are divas, others are just difficult to work with because they think they’ve made it.”

“When you see all these people here, you just get a taste of this guy…if you’ve lived with him, spent some time with him, you realise that he was some sort of an angel.”

Mafatshe adds that Sebeng had an amazing aura of being a superstar. One could see he was quality. He had the biggest heart with his friends.

“Whenever you’ve been in the acting game for too long, he would want to know how you do this and how I can better my performance and myself. I’ve never met anyone who was so professional.”
