Mpho Popps speaks about his versatility in the entertainment industry as he was famously known for being a stand-up comedian, but now he hosts multiple shows, he acts, and he is also a podcast presenter. Speaking to The Citizen, he said, “Our entertainment is growing in all spheres. Music, acting, presenting, comedy… so I feel like as an artist, I drive myself in being a versatile artist.
I’ll never box myself as saying ‘I’m just a stand-up comedian’.” He says all that he is currently experiencing are dreams come true.
“I remember I had a moment sitting at SunBet Arena when Kevin Hart was here and I said to myself ‘I can’t wait till I perform at SunBet’ and I put it out there to the universe,” says Popps.
“It was the biggest live recording of a podcast in the world. He (MacG) was able to realize his dream, but in realizing his dream he helped other people, like myself, realize their dreams.”
“What a beautiful wholesome ‘black child it’s possible’ moment. I’m still reeling from that moment.”
Speaking about his role in a new comedy film titled Big Nunu’s Little Heist, Mpho said, “Yes I’m a comedian [but] acting has been something I’ve always wanted to do. Growing up I wanted to be many things, that’s why entertainment makes sense because I can be a cop, I can be a pastor… I can be anything. In front of the camera, I can embody any character and then get to do something different the next day.”
