Marietjie BothmaLocation: Based in Johannesburg
Actress, MC, Motivational Speaker and Musician Marietjie Bothma is best known as the Afrikaans woman who speaks fluent Zulu in the King Pie Advert. The multicultural TV personality has taken audiences by storm with her funny character and her ability to speak fluently in many languages.
Marietjie's is a refreshing and truly unique South African story - a story of hope and perseverance that could change someone’s life. From being a street kid to performing as MC at Jacob Zuma’s Presidential inauguration, Marietjie's life journey is particularly inspirational.
Her presence and performance at the union building in Pretoria was preceded two years before by her highly acclaimed performance on a King Pie commercial, in which she surprisingly spoke fluent Zulu. As a result, Marietjie was trending in the townships and all corners of Mzansi.
Followed the popular advert, Marietjie starred in numerous hilarious SABC1 adverts (Bheka Mina Ngedwa), and she can be seen as Noxolo in Ukhakhayi, a drama Series for E-TV. She is currently shooting for a new international series called “The list" playing as Belinda
Though she is exciting to watch on television, but her dark past experience would have been a painful experience to watch on our small screen.
Born in Potchefstroom, Marietjie was adopted by a Pretoria family when she was 10 months old. During her struggled upbringing, Marietjie dropped out of school with only Grade 7 to her name; she moved from one place to another and ended up being a street kid. At some point, she was had lost all hope and attempted to commit suicide.
Her dark days being behind her and Marietjie is currently living her dream, and using fame to inspire people by telling her story in multiple tongues.
