Networth and Social Media

He has a reported networth of $30 000.00 which is like R406 700.00. However, Tshiamo Molobi’s Social media presence is somewhat sketchy. He has an instagram account under the username: @tshiamo_molobi_lefa with no profile photo and only one picture of him. It is the only account with his name and picture with the biggest amount of following.

However, his facebook presence is of better applause.His facebook page goes by the name Tshiamo Molobi and has not been verified yet. But, it has a large following and a convincing profiling showing it is not a fan page. It seems he’s not much into social media, just like his Rhythm City colleague Kealeboga Masango known as Zinhle who said she will only run an instagram account of her own when she’s at the legal age.
