Tumi Morake Biography

Is a South African comedian, actress and media personality long famous for her comedy shows. What she turned up to be much later in life detracts from her experiences growing up. Her parents were anti-apartheid activists who both spent time in jail for their activism against the racist state.

Ironically, despite the turbulence of childhood, Morake would grow up to snag a degree from Wits and end up making a living from acting and from making people laugh. Can you beat that?


Tumi Morake was born in December 1981, which means she is currently 41 years. She will be 42 in a couple of months.


Tumi Morake’s husband is no other than Mpho Osei Tutu, an actor, director and screenwriter. The couple has been together for over a decade, and even in their “fights,” they still call each other “babe,” something Mpho is happy to talk about.


The title of sangoma or local healer appears to be the fashion these days, with celebrities sharing their “calling” with members of the public. A search by UbeToo cannot confirm that she was a sangoma at the time of writing.

Weight Loss

Losing weight is one topic that has been around for as long as one can remember. While some people find it easy to lose weight, for others, it is hell. And while some people want to lose weight, others would rather not. She recalled being too embarrassed to attend her graduation because of her weight back then despite having graduated cum laude. She would shed the pounds and get them back again. She ended up writing a letter to herself about body positivity.


An actress, Tumi Morake has distinguished herself in several flicks, including the following.

  • Mr. Bones 3: Son of Bones. Mamba. 2022.
  • Slay. Dee. 2021.
  • Skin

By her own account, she derives much joy from interpreting her roles and usually gives her all while at it. That partly explains her success as an actress.

TV Shows

Some see her as an industry heavyweight while others see her as just a woman who is good at what she does. In a sense, both positions are not wrong. Tumi Morake has done and is still doing pretty well in many areas. She has popped in several TV shows, some of which are listed below.

  • Black Tax. TV Series. 2021. 1 episode.
  • Seriously Single. Noni. 2020.

Net Worth

How much a celebrity is worth is one area of curiosity that will likely never go away. There is rarely an interest in how much a person is worth become they become famous. With fame comes curiosity about their bags. Tumi Morake might be doing well in several areas, but you wouldn’t get her into conversations about her net worth. As a result, the public has been doing the talking instead, with conservation estimates pegging her net worth at $400k.


South Africa doesn’t have many female comedians, so there is especially strong interest in females who have delved into the world of comedy, including Tumi Morake. She is the host of an all-female comedy show called Laugh Mosadi.

The show is pretty popular and has often been pointed to as something to watch over the weekend for those who want a break from the drab and the soppy. “Laugh” is no accident as part of the name of the show, for you are most likely to laugh from watching.
