about

Lebo is a Johannesburg-based screenwriter and writer-performer. Lebo’s original drama for Quizzical Pictures and Netflix SAVAGE BEAUTY bowed on the service in May 2022 and immediately soared to the top ten in multiple territories where it remained for weeks. He spent three years as a story-liner and scriptwriter on the Emmy-nominated telenovela THE RIVER — winner of a record 11 awards, including best writing, at the 2019 South African Film and Television Awards. At the same awards ceremony, Mogashoa was also nominated in the best writing category for his head-writing debut on season 1 of the primetime drama THE HERD— the second most-watched show in its time slot on DSTV’s Mzansi Magic. Lebo has also served as a scriptwriter on three successful seasons of the daily drama THE QUEEN; season 1 of THE THRONE and the DSTV hit drama THE REPUBLIC. Lebo’s work as a writer-performer include his monthly shows (since 2015) at Joburg’s POPArt Theatre and his critically acclaimed solo shows that explore young African queer identity, performed at the National Arts Festival — helped earn him a spot on the Mail and Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans in 2017. Mogashoa studied film and media at the University of Cape Town, has performed in London at THE MOTH and is currently lead writer, executive producer and creator of the second series of his Netflix original. He is about to commence writing an original feature also for a streamer.
