Actor Thato Dithebe, who portrays Neo in House of Zwide, and Lebo in Champions revealed on X this week that he’s a Wits graduate.


The 23-year-old House of Zwide star also revealed on social media that he will soon graduate from Wits after completing his engineering degree.


Dithebe shared a letter from the institution congratulating for completing his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.

Social media has been flooded with congratulatory messages after former YoTV presenter competed his degree from Wits University.

News of the actor’s degree comes after Sowetan reported this week that he’s joined Mzansi Magic’s telenovela, Champions.


His character, Lebogang is from Pretoria and a football player. The talented actor says his latest soccer player character wants nothing but to make it in life and become a star.

“I’m often mistaken to be from Pretoria, maybe because of Neo, the character I play on House of Zwide, that people feel that I’m from the capital city,” said the actor.

“My second role on Champions, Lebogang Serite, is also from Pretoria, and because I’m always in character, I guess it makes it easy to pull off a convincing persona.”

Sunday World reports that Thato Dithebe will act alongside Kwenzo Ngcobo, Sello Maake KaNcube, Kgomotso Christopher and Jo-Anne Reyneke in Champions.

Executive producer Phathutshedzo Makwarela explains that the show Champions uniquely embodies the spirit of South Africa, aiming to inspire and excite our audience.

@R_Sanchez_C137: “Congratulations Thatos. Wena uyikho konke, you’re a jack of all trades. An actor, presenter and now a civil engineer.”
