Actor Mpho J Molepo is known for playing the role of Kabisi Moroka on Generations The Legacy. The Kabisi role is the guardian and the leader of the wealthy and powerful Moroka empire; he rose into power after succeeding Molefe Moroka.
Over the storyline, Kabisi fought hard to preserve the Moroka name; his major setback was the failure to appoint a Moroka heir. From failing to convince the lawful heir Mazwi Moroka to take the reigns to witness Smangaliso Moroka taking a hiding from family affairs, Kabisi’s desperation saw him offering the Moroka heir to Mpho.
His great undoing came the moment he fell for and wedded Tshidi; betrayal and emotional blackmail became his daily bread. Despite playing the role of an elder family leader, the custodian of the Moroka clan’s financial and traditional values, Mpho J Molepo is much younger than Kabisi Moroka.
Born on 28 November 1973, Mpho J Molepo is 48 years old; he is qualified with a Bachelor of Arts Honors Degree in Drama and Live Performance from Wits University School of Arts.

Over the years, he has played roles on Skeem Saam, Zabalaza, The LAB and Backstage. Besides acting, Mpho has a keen interest in film directing and has worked on several theatre productions, including Mating Birds, Play Me, and the Award-winning play Skierlik.
In real life, he is the father of one daughter Dimpho Molepo.
