Shale had always known that acting was in his blood. His interest in acting began in Botshabelo, where he used to pay 10 cents to watch his favorite shows.
He was cast as the uncle of shrewd businessman Lehasa Maphosa, played by Cedric Fourie, in the popular youth drama Skeem Saam.
Uncle Phomolo is maturing with the show, and viewers are noticing that he is just as cunning as his nephew Lehasa. There is a spoiler alert circulating that he could be the father of Khwezi’s child.
He, like most actors, draws inspiration from those who came before him. Shale was inspired to pursue acting by Wesley Snipes and Dr. Kgotso Nkgatho.
Shale is also a co-host on the reality show Men Don’t Cry. The show deals with issues that men face, such as being wrongfully accused of rape and being denied access to their children.
Aside from acting and presenting, he is a notable businessman and the CEO and Executive Producer of Mokoshale Productions.
His efforts are not unnoticed, particularly in his community. Shale was named one of the Top 100 Influential Free Stators in 2021.
