Mapaseka Koetle, famously known as Dintle on ETV’s Scandal!, surprised many when she opened, Gorge, a restaurant in Sandton. We had no doubt that Mapaseka had it in her to run a restaurant but knowing her character on Scandal!, you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise.
Recently, we caught up with her at Sasani studios to find out more about her new business venture and plans for 2018.
Gorge Is A Franchise
Pasi and her husband where visiting one of the restaurants in Krameville to grab something to eat only to find out that the owner was selling. “I’m trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle and Gorge sells healthy food so when I went there with my husband, we thought to ourselves – if only we owned something like that. We both love cooking and the food industry. It was just a dream then because we didn’t know that the owner was actually selling it. We had a meeting with the guy and decided to buy it and open one is Sandton”, explains the actress.
The Public Has Been Really Supportive
It’s going so well, especially the response from the public. After posting a pic of the restaurant on social media people started taking pictures of themselves getting coffee there and tagging me.
A lot Of People Don’t Know That I’m Goal Driven
It made me realise that I’ve got so many aspirations. I think a lot people are shocked that I would buy a restaurant because they know me as my character, Dintle, so when they see me they see her. They don’t know that I’m actually goal driven.
Be on the lookout for the full EXCLUSIVE interview with Mapaseka coming out in our Magazine soon.
Ladies and gents, keep up with the beautiful Mapaseka on social media
