From Financial Struggles to Spiritual Transformation
The video comes a couple of months after Thabiso Mokhethi opened up about his financial struggles after he lost his job after six years on prime-time TV.
In a recent exclusive interview with Gogo Skhotheni on The Venting Podcast, the actor reflected on the challenges he faced during this difficult period.
“After Generations there was a switch. I came from being on TV doing two shows. I did Gospel Gold, Gospel Time and Refresh. After Generations things just went dry,” he said
Thabiso explained that he embraced ubungoma to address his inner struggles.
In early September, Thabiso altered his stance. In a social media post, he distanced himself from being a sangoma, expressing his pursuit to seek God and preach the gospel
