The South African actress Mapaseka Koetle Mapaseka was born in Bloemfontein, Free State, South Africa. Just like some other actors, Mapaseka's dream was to be a doctor, and at a time, she considered a lawyer. Her passion for becoming a doctor was because of the coat she would wear and then ask people ”wa kola? Are you sick?” But little did she know that destiny had something completely different for her.
It all started that whenever they had a subject in Arts, Culture, and Life Orientation, she would be with other pupils in her class. The rule in their class activities was that whatever topic they were given had to be acted. By implication, other pupils began to fall in love with her each time she acted. Then, on her part, as she began to fall in love with seeing people watch her while she performed, she started to figure out what she could make out of it.
As a young lady with a humble background, Mapaseka had always drawn inspiration from her mother. According to her, the mother was so confident about her and would go around bragging about her. So, out of the fear of not disappointing the woman, Koetle drew energy from that and made up her mind to do whatever it would cost her to succeed. After she finished Tsoseletso high school in Bloemfontein, she decided to learn more about acting.
Mapaseka did her first year in the School for the Creative Economy popularly known as AFDA, but because it was costly, she had to embark on some researches. It was in the process that she eventually moved to City Varsity, which was where she had her Acting for Camera qualification in 2011. Then, she launched out in theater after she landed a role in the hit play “Show Off” as ‘Lesedi’. Within four years, Mapaseka was decorated in 2015 with an award as the Best Support Actress of Royal Soapie award.
