“We are saddened by the news of Lesego’s sudden passing at such a young age. During her years on Isidingo, she was professional and performed to the best of her abilities. We extend our grief and sincere condolences to her family and friends. She will be missed by her friends and colleagues here at Endemol”, says Sivan Pillay, Managing Director of Endemol.
Motsepe’s debut on Isidingo was in 1998 serving a decade to the show. She performed well in her craft, and delivered her role exceptionally. Endemol and Isidingo’s cast and crew will celebrate her contributions to the show. Her legacy, love and influence in acting will remain in the lives and hearts of many South Africans.
The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) joins the country in mourning the death of Ms. Lesego Motsepe, a renowned South African television and theatre actress. As the SABC we are proud to have contributed to the nurturing of this fine talent.
The corporation would like to send heartfelt condolences to Lesego Motsepe’s family, friends and colleagues. Lesego will be remembered for her immense contribution in the arts industry. Her role as the lively Lettie Matabane on one of South Africa’s popular soapie, Isidingo, captivated millions of South African viewers on our channels.
We saw Lesego’s talent flourishing at an early age as she featured on many productions including the teenage drama, Dynamite Diepkloof Dudes, and from then onwards she blossomed into a great performer she was.
Her face will surely disappear on our minds but her great work will remain and continue to challenge and inspire aspiring and established performers. Lesego Motsepe will be truly missed.
