Modupe has had one brilliant acting career in which we have also seen him act in other television shows like Harvest, Heartlines, Home Affairs and Rented Family.

He has hinted at exploring further as a creative and this is what we believe he means by that statement.

Being a Published Author

We do know that he has written a book titled Along Came Tsakani which is due to hit the book shelves this year.

Music Career

He has also begun a music career and has released two single we could find. His first single titled “Idumakamnandi“ which was received well enough that he worked on a second single.

He has released his second single title “The Waaa Song” which was produced by DJ Pencil & Zing Master.

I do believe that KagMo is his stage name that he is adopting, but don’t quote me on that unless I am correct.

Acting Career

Just because he is leaving Scandal does not mean he is done with acting. He still does plan on taking on other roles on the small screens. In a way we might say he is just trying to play the field or the television screen in this case. In a Drum Q&A he mentioned that he will be working on a film with his daughter and that he cannot divulge too much on that just yet.

Master of Ceremonies (MC)

He still plans to continue being an MC. He has been the MC for many ETV roadshows and other events.

Ambassador

He is an ambassador for Brothers for Life which is a social and well-being movement aimed at mobilising men to take responsibility for their own health.

Radio Presenter

According to Modupe he usually starts a year by setting 17 goals for himself to achieve in that particular year. Being a radio show presenter was one of his goals for 2017 and it seems that he has gotten that opportunity on CliffCentral .com. He is hosting Unleashed every Wednesday from 3PM to 4PM.

So as per his post we shall enjoy his last storyline which should conclude by May. How will the story of Mangi Nyathi end on Scandal? I guess we will have to watch and see.
