Jerry Phele is a South African Sotho descent man who has starred in several drama series including Emzini Wezinsizwa where he used to play the role of Mofokeng, a role which he is still known by to this day.
However, he has also starred in the SABC1 educational drama series Khululeka and also joined the cast of the SABC2 sitcom Skwizas for its second season where he starred alongside veteran actors such Lillian Dube and the late Mary Twala.
In 2013, he had starred as Bra Seputla - a scheming taxi driver in the Mzansi Magic's sitcom Samsokolo. In 2018, he had a starring role as Motsamai, a village joker who had more knowledge than first meets the eye in the Mzansi Magic's telenovela The Throne.
He is one of the only two surviving Emzini Wezinsizwa cast members. He looked to shake his role as Mofokeng when he stepped into his new role as Motsamai on The Throne.
Speaking to Sowetan he said this: "I've tried to correct people, I've given up. It has become my name. Even when I meet the real Bafokeng, they call me Phoka [Mafokeng clan names] and ask me where in Qwa Qwa I am from. Even my children are known as Mofokeng children and my mother is Mofokeng's mother. I now take it as a compliment, it means that the character I played really made an impression on people".
