Skeem Saam’s Captain Malebana is Rhythm City Fats’ father in real-life

A person who is unaware of Fats is not a fan of Rhythm City.Fats is difficult to ignore, whether he’s merely loitering or planning something.

He performed as the family’s bad apple, Busang Moroka. He had dreadlocks at the time, and it appears Mpho Molepo wore dreadlocks for his role as Fats at one point.




Arthur Molepo has been in the field of acting for a long time and has played in so many roles that he has established a solid reputation both domestically and internationally.In the soap opera Skeem Saam, Arthur is most recently known as Captain Malebana.Mpho said his father is his inspiration, and watching him in action led him to choose acting as a career.

I grew up in theatres, as my father took me to rehearsals, so after matriculating from the National School of the Arts in Jozi I was set for a career on the stage. The arts world is the only thing I know.

Arthur Molepo revealed to Drum Magazine that although he is proud of what his son has achieved, if it were up to him, he wouldn’t have had him in acting.If I could have chosen a career for Mpho it wouldn’t have been acting. But I did give him his first break when he was at school – I was directing a play and asked him to perform a song for the production. I shouldn’t have paid him that R500 because he didn’t have to do anything. He just sang a song I composed. Haai man!
Mpho claimed that he had survived in the field primarily by following his father’s advise and picking up tips from his experiences.Without a doubt, the Molepos keep us entertained.
