Sello Maake was born in Ladybrand, Free State, South Africa in 1960. He later moved to Atteridgeville, Pretoria, where he grew up. He subsequently changed his name to Sello Maake Ka Ncube in honour of his late stepfather who raised him. As a child, he enjoyed the experience of watching movies, and that is where he got his inspiration and passion for acting from. Hugely inspired by the late South African playwright and director Gibson Kente, Sello has gone on to establish a formidable career. Ka-Ncube is famous for touring The Lion King, as Mufasa and earlier leading a ground breaking all African cast in Generations. In 2002 FNB Vita nominated him the Best Ensemble Performance in Musical Theatre, Best Script of a New South African Play, Best Director and for Best Production, for Komeng. Before then, FNB Vita Awarded him Best Performance in a Comedy by a Male for Call Us Crazy. 2000/2001 he won the Pan African Heritage Broadcast Achievement Award for Drama. Most notably, he won the Dalro Award for Best Actor for The Suit. Maake Ka-Ncube is considered to be one of South Africa's most esteemed actors and voice actors, having performed in countless theatre, film and television work both in his native land, as well as in the United States, Britain, Canada and Europe. He also narrated natural history documentary Africa's Outsiders about unusually pigmented (albino) wild animals, which was aired by Animal Planet worldwide. Ka-Ncube is known in his native country for the leading role in many long-running and short production projects and continues to inspire a fellowship of young up and coming artists to do the same.Read More
