Well, Kope is technically but not officially married. He lives with his fiancée, who is only known by the name Mpotseng. The couple is blessed with three kids, including twins: Zoey (a girl) and Zoyl (a boy).

Education and career
Since his high school time, Kope had manifested all the hallmarks of a gifted actor, particularly due to his spontaneous comedic flair.
Some dreams never come easy, and his passion for media was no exception. To raise money for his college, Kope had to hustle through some very humble business ventures. For example, before graduating from high school, he sold Kota sandwiches to his colleagues. After that, he moved on to supply pencils and pens to schools all around Limpopo.
At this time, it seemed so clear that Kope’s hustle was picking new momentum. Immediately, he dropped the pen and pencil business; he ventured into catering and sewing curtains for senior citizen's homes.
Using the hustle proceeds, he enrolled at the University of Limpopo, where he graduated with a degree in media studies and then moved to Johannesburg to actualize his dream to join the entertainment industry.
From Limpopo university, he got a chance to work in a modeling & acting agency, and in no time, he was a common face on popular commercial ads. Television roles would follow soon, and these included the role he played in Ashes to Ashes as a priest.

As his career picked momentum, he played roles in many other shows, including Gunsten 'Gus' Moloi and Generations: The Legacy.

Besides music, commercial ads, and entertainment, Kope runs Hip Hope, a non-profit organization that inspires young children to dream big. He also owns Lalela, an online TV platform for the youth that focuses on relationships, social dynamics, and finances.
