While other actors often express their frustrations at the”lack of jobs” in the acting industry, Thapelo Mokoena says he doesn’t usually suffer from the same fate and wants to share his secret to booking and keeping gigs.
In an interview with TshisaLIVE Thapelo explained the motive behind his latest initiative aimed at empowering aspiring artists through a series of talks.
“I am doing this because I can’t write a book quick enough, but I have something to give to these young artists. I know why I get all the gigs I set out to have, and I want to share that knowledge because not everyone is privileged enough to have money to go to school for that education.”
The actor shared that the approach of the #BookYour1stGIG also differs from most that he has seen. He said he wanted to create a setting that made it easier for people to understand the industry and how to best use their skills.
