Mzansi social media users decided to take some time to show love and appreciation to veteran actor Rapulana Seiphemo.
Seiphemo is a South African actor and filmmaker. He is primarily known for his role as Tau Mogale in the long-running soap opera Generations and its continuation, Generations: The Legacy.
Many felt that they wanted to show him live while he was still alive. Twitter user kulanicool said:
“We've got to appreciate Rapulana Seiphemo while he's still with us.”
His post quickly went viral on social media as many others weighed in with their thoughts about the actor. Twitter user Maxed_SMMO said:
“Legend in the game.”
“One of Mzansi's best actors.”
“I knew this guy had to have an actual name, I just don’t know why I’d think it’s Tau.”
“Loved him on Hijack Stories and on White Wedding. He does his craft so effortlessly.”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Rapulana Seiphemo is leaving his Generations character Tau Mogale behind for a new and exciting role on The Queen and it is not easy.
Having played Tau for an incredible 18 years, Rapulana is leaving behind what feels like a part of him.
Briefly.co.za knows how sad fans are that Rapulana is leaving the show, but it is clear to see that this decision was not an easy one for the veteran actor either.
Speaking to Drum magazine, Rapulana expressed how being given the chance to play the role of Hector Sebata whilst working with his former co-star Connie Ferguson again was an opportunity he just couldn’t pass up.
"Connie is like a sister to me. I respect her hard work and professionalism ... they presented a compelling case that enticed me to consider their proposal. But it was only after several discussions and meetings that I was convinced to join."
Despite the extreme excitement of the new role, Rapulana did express how hard it was for him to walk away from Generations and his character Tau – that is family.
