Where did Rantebeng Makapan from Generations disappear to?

South African actor, Rantebeng Makapan is popular for playing the character of spoilt brat Thomas Mashaba, son of Kenneth Mashaba on Generations.

Although he featured in a few local productions after leaving the cast of Generations, fans have been wondering about her whereabouts.

In a 2020 interview with Lection on his podcast, Rantebeng opened up about the industry, what he would love to see change, and his whereabouts,

“One of the hardest things about the industry is that gaona spane, there’s too little content. I remember Ntate Hlaudi who spoke about 9-10. We should’ve supported that man as artists because if you watch the tv right now or listen to the radio, we are consuming a lot of international stuff which means that chelate is going out of the country to pay people abroad,” he told Lection.

Rantebeng says the dynamics of the industry have changed since he first started out in the early 2000s – it’s now all about social media following.

“When got into the industry around 2003/2004 when you went to an audition, there was a block there that said experience, and where did you study. Fast forward to now, that block has been replaced by the number of Instagram followers, and the number of Facebook followers. They. No longer look at your experience but at look at whether you’re an influencer or a socialite.

What Ranteebeng Has Beeen Up To

He is in the process of setting up his production company. “I really want to be the guy that’s behind the scenes, that’s providing content. I discovered that there’s a lot of space that I can fill. Besides that, I’m very much into network marketing.”
