After high school, Molemo’s parents helped him to get a right agency for acting and modelling. He started out modelling and then he later auditioned for acting roles. His first debut role on television was to play Khumo Sebata on The Queen.

“So I stopped modelling and joined a agency that got me castings but I was [not] getting any of them. She (the casting agent) finally sent the role for Khumo and I got the role. My first gig has been my breakthrough,” said MolemoTlali.
