The multi-talented entertainer has a net worth of $1.5 million which accrued from her diverse careers in modeling, hosting TV shows, acting, singing/rapping, and entrepreneurship. It is of great interest that she came from humble beginnings, but despite the obstacles posed by financial constraints, Boity Thulo was more than capable of dealing with the challenges and came out on the other side as a successful woman in her own right.
Thulo’s achievements in business and the entertainment industry earned her a place on Forbes Africa’s 30 Under 30 List; the 2019 edition. From what is obvious, the African beauty has enough entrepreneurial skills and business acumen to break more frontiers and achieve bigger feats. With that said, her present fortune of $1.5 million may just be a small scratch on the surface as the lady seems poised to conquer the business and entertainment world.
She Has Graced The Front Pages of Several Publications as a Model
Boitumelo Thulo’s upbringing, though strict, gave some room for creativity; thus, the emerging star had the leverage to grow into the bundle of talents we know today. Her preparation for the task ahead commenced at the High School level where she was active in the school band. She went on to study Criminology and Psychology at Monash University but did not graduate due to financial constraints.
After she dropped out of Monash, the aspiring actress joined a casting agency where she began working and walking for a few brands. Her modeling career took off in 2010 when she was presented with the opportunity to appear in a commercial for Wimpy. She has since then graced the cover page of magazines like Bona, Cosmopolitan, Hype, Glamour, and True Love. The popular weekly Newspaper Saturday Star has also had her on its front page.
Her Television Hosting Career Commenced with YOTV’s Crib Note
In 2011, YOTV’s educational show popularly known as Crib Note took her on as a presenter, opening an inroad into other TV hosting jobs. From there, the SA beauty began hosting the Ridiculousness Africa television show, as well as a host of other shows that include Club 808, Zoned, Changed Down, SkyRoom Live, and Big Brother Africa which aired in over 40 countries. All these contributed to her growing fame and also feathered her nest.
Boity Thulo Began Acting in 2013
Boity Thulo made her acting debut in 2013 when she was cast in the leading role on the set of the television series, Rockville from the stables of Ferguson Films. Having the opportunity to share the screen with SA’s iconic actress, Connie Ferguson, earned her more popularity and Thulo has since expressed her gratitude to Ferguson Films for giving her a chance to announce her acting talent to the world.
Rockville was like a herald of good tidings for the actress in the movie world as she soon scored another role. This time, it was the 2014 short film entitled Dear Betty. A couple of years down the line, Thulo was cast in the film Mrs. Right Guy.

Her first musical appearance was accomplished in 2017 on the South African leg of the Migos Culture Tour where she performed as one of the shows’ opening acts alongside Nasty C.
Her debut appearance on the show may well have served as the trigger that unleashed her music talent because not long after that particular gig, the emerging rapper’s debut single hit the music stand. The single which was titled “Wuz Dat” featured Nasty C and was dropped in 2018. It went platinum in no time at all, going on to become South Africa’s best-selling single of all time by a female rapper. Her views on YouTube from South Africa alone got up to 1.9 million and over 3.4 million worldwide. The SA Hip-Hop Awards of 2018 honored her with the Best Collaboration Award. She made history as the first female to bag the award.
Though not as successful as “Wuz Dat”, Boity Thulo’s second single “Bakae” also did well. This conclusion is drawn from the YouTube views of over 800k the video and audio received.
