The entertainment industry was shocked to hear that actress Shoke Mogapa has passed away at the age of 34.
Nashoda Billy, a representative from Shoki’s management company, MLA Talent Agency has come forward to confirm the news but have remained tight lipped about the cause of death.
In a statement released by Nashoda, he revealed that the actress passed away on Tuesday night and they were devastated by the news.
An anonymous representative from Clive Morris Productions has also expressed how saddened they were to hear about her passing and reminisced about how much they enjoyed working with her on the set of ‘The Docket’.
TimesLIVE reports that the source praised Shoki’s professionalism and believed that her acting skills would have taken her very far in the industry, but they are saddened that they will never see how far she would have made it.
The young actress made her acting debut as a personal assistant on the 2008 series ‘The Lab’ but her career has skyrocketed since.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Shoki has appeared in many successful movies and TV series, but she received huge acclaim for her role in ‘Sink’.
The actress received an award at the SAFTAs for Best Actress in a Feature Film for her role as a Mozambican domestic worker who loses her child whilst under her employer’s care.
Shoki has racked up numerous award nominations and has won just as many awards for the roles she plays and had a very promising future which ended far too soon.
