Mpho Popps Modikoane is a remarkable South African comedian who is best known to TV viewers for being one of the superstars to compete in the sixth edition of the SABC3 reality dancing competition Strictly Come Dancing, in 2013.

Popps initially got noticed on the SABC1 competition So You Think You’re Funny! in 2009 before going on to  the club scene in Johannesburg, where he swiftly made a name for himself.

He also performed in the miniseries Taxi Ride as Kumba, a man of many faces who is a flamboyant person with a roguish side.

He has consequently appeared on Blacks Only, Mzansi Magic’s Opening Guys and Laugh Out Loud and on the talk show Late Night with Kgomotso.

Mpho Popps made his primary appearance on DStv’s Comedy Central station in May 2012 on the first ever episode of Comedy Central Presents… Live @ Parkers.

He was also a reviewer on the second season of the Vuzu show 10 Over 10, in 2013. And in 2014 he hosted the SABC1 reality cooking series The Perfect Sishebo Show.

Now Mpho has become huge in South Africa as major TV and film star.
