Lethabo is a talented seasoned actor who has played many a role in several SABC 1, 2 and 3 TV series, his latest role being in Mamello on SABC 2 at 21:30. So one would assume that it is easy for him to dress however he pleases as he hits the bustling streets of Johannesburg. This is not always the case, as Lethabo confides in me. He explained that it is not easy for him to wear high waist jeans in certain parts of the city where people are less accepting and liberal and that it is almost impossible for him to dress how he wants in his hometown which is more rural hence more traditional. Lethabo combats this by wearing sweatpants and white T-shirts, which are more comfortable to run day-to-day errands in like attending meetings and auditions, however he still gets irritated that he can’t feel totally free to dress how he wants whenever he wants due to external mindsets and ideologies.
Lethabo has some advice he would like to share with any young men that would like to start exploring the ladies sections of clothing stores;
“It’s not about what you wear, but how you wear it.”
