Pasi Reveals She Has A Beard

E.tv actress Mapaseka Koetle has never been shy to speak her mind. Apart from her near-perfect acting skills. It is her outspoken personality that has made her a hit with audiences. More recently, she took to her Instagram stories to reveal that she has a beard.

“Morning banabeso.” She said. “I just want to ask neh? I’m talking to ladies who have nchebe (beard). How do you guys deal with it? Does it embarrass you? Obviously, I wax it. I was advised to remove it permanently.”

The star joked and said that it is the reason she removed the “Ma” from her name and now goes with Paseka. “I was shocked. I even called myself Paseka, I removed the Ma in it because my beard was so big. I just want to ask ladies who are very hairy like me. Are you embarrassed to have a beard?”

On Saturday, 10 July 2021 the actress proved that beauty does run in her family when she introduced her younger sister to the world. Because it was her birthday, she saw it fitting that her thousands of social media followers also joined in the party. Unfortunately, they could not go out because of the lockdown restrictions.

Her sister’s full names are Rakgadi Sedy Koetle – she is a businesswoman, a brand ambassador and a mom.

Now a household name in the industry, Koetle had to grind her way up before landing the role of Dintle. “And then Scandal, I went to go audition for Gontse (there’s a character called Gontse)…and I didn’t get it, and I said: ‘You know what? it’s fine ’cause a week before I went to go audition for a character I got a callback but I didn’t get the part and I was so mad that I even stopped watching Rhythm City.” She revealed – she had initially auditioned for a different role.

“Two weeks after they called me, and I’m thinking I’m going back to audition for Gontse, not knowing that it’s a new audition all together…immediately when I left Sasani [studios] I get a call…they tell me I got the part…they didn’t even have a name for that character, they were like, this is Dintle, there’s no other.”

Chatting to Kaya FM some years back about her journey in the industry,

Mapaseka revealed that there was a time when she couldn’t even afford her taxi fare.

“The first day, we came with a train because I couldn’t afford a bus and it’s like 9 or 10 hours just sitting there. A lady was sitting next to me and the baby was crying, the baby pooped and it was just a long trip.” She said.

“We didn’t know which taxi to get from where, because there was Noord and then there was Bree, I didn’t want to look around because people were going to be like; ‘Aah this girl, where is she from?’ So it was so interesting.”
