Lesang Tshoke


Born on 16th of August 1989, Lesang is a 32 year old gentleman with a multi-faceted life. With a happy go lucky attitude towards life, his main purpose has always been to chase whatever he is passionate about as and when the passion arises, which will be evident herein.

Spending most of his childhood raised by a single mom and his elder sister, Lesang’s colourful ventures in life begin in 1998, where he discovered his love for musical theatre and at the tender age of 7, he secured the main character role in an annual school play. This cultivated his performing passion and saw him become a lead in the schools brass band where he played the trumpet. The brassband saw him performing all over South Africa at multiple occasions from concerts to year end functions, to performing for the great late Nelson Mandela and the list carries on and on.

It was only natural that leaving high school, he decided to pursue music and the performing arts further, seeing him grow on to attend a prestigious art school in Pretoria named Pro Arte Alphen Park. That was the greatest decision he made which fed his need to be on a stage in various aspects. He then began training on the Piano as his second instrument major. In his final 2 years of high school, the school allowed him to take on a 3rd instrument major (this was not a norm). He had achieved an average of over 80% in his first two instruments being the trumpet and piano so he was then allowed to choose where his other passion would lie, that being his voice. He decided to harness this passion by pursuing the study of classical and Jazz vocal training.

Leaving high school, he felt that the entertainment industry in South Africa with regards to classical, jazz and musical theatre was not where he wanted his bread and butter to come from as it is a fickle market and so he decided to take on one of his other dreams of becoming a doctor one day. He thus got accepted to the University of the Witwatersrand where he would study BHSC (biomedical) towards his MBBCh.

This career path would be short-lived as halfway through his degree, he decided that he wanted to become a pilot. This saw him secure funding from SA Express through a bursary to become a commercial pilot. To date he has acquired a Private Pilots License as well as a Drone Pilots License under his belt.

During his aviation career, the entertainment bug came to place a weight on his shoulders again which he could not ignore. He then signed for a place in YFM’s most sort after Y-academy. Which saw him graduate top of his class of 2013 as a certified Radio Broadcaster. After this bug was attended to, his life took a turn back into aviation to pursue the completion of his Commercial Pilots License.

Due to the high cost of self funding to complete this license, he would now and then delve back into entertainment as his current means of income. Hosting and MC’s at his weekly Karaoke and Games Night events; as well as taking on work to MC at various events for New Years eve, corporate functions for creators and other open concerts alike. His voice has been used in various projects as a voiceover artist.

Being his own boss in the field this time, he became producer and director of some of the countries biggest Youtube shows at the moment; managing to harness relationships with Youtube internationally as well as work with various brands on marketing campaigns of his own creation, finally reaching the point of being able to make money out of his own creativity. He has been seen as a thought leader in the content creation space in South Africa, even being invited as keynote speaker by companies such as DSTV.

His MC’ing has since seen him be the master of ceremonies at events such as the Tshwane Food Festival, the UNFPA Stakeholder forum on accelerating SRHR financing, the UNFPA Regional Leadership Meeting for the Eastern and Southern Regions, Toyota Touch Season 8, the Wonderboom Airport Air Navigation Rally , where he was actually standing in as a aviation sport live commentator.

During this phase of his life as a well known content creator and subsequent influencer in South Africa, he decided together with some of his friends to enter the sort after 48hour film festival. At first, this was just for fun, until he and his partners realised what a great piece of art they had created, seeing them win 6 awards overall in South Africa, 4 awards and second place at Filmapalooza in Orlando Florida and eventually a screening at the Cannes Film Festival (short film).

As can be deduced by now, this is a vibrant young man who lives his life for the moment; chasing all his heart desires and making sure he succeeds at all he lays his hands on. An asset to anyone in any field who decides to take him on to any role they see fit.
