Award-winning thespian and film-maker, Thapelo Mokoena, is taking his passion for mentorship as well as his bespoke taste in wine to greater heights with the launch of two new YouTube channels aimed at opening up audiences to the world of wine and television. Mokoena, introduces Nero TV and The Artist Corner, where he will take viewers & the entire lifestyle offering that comes with wine culture through his experience of becoming a winemaker as well as his journey as an Actor and Filmmaker. Audiences can expect engaging content from the star and most importantly learn more about their interests, be it wine or acting – through Mokoena’s the eyes & viewpoints.
Nero TV invites wine curios, wine connoisseurs and lovers of wine to join in on conversations that not only educate consumers about what makes a great wine but also introduce viewers to some of the best wines available in South Africa. The show is set to delight consumers by not only sharing Mokoena’s journey as a winemaker through his dark grape brand Nero, but also broaden the conversation by including other wine makers and brands, so consumers are fully immersed in the rich story of local and international wines.
“The world of wine can come across as very daunting for most people, and working with the Bosman Family Vineyards to produce Nero grape has taught me so much about the industry as well as the process of winemaking and this inspired the idea to create a platform that educates and shares some of the knowledge I have gained along the way,” said Thapelo Mokoena. “One can look forward to digital wine tastings, food pairings, wine reviews, wine eventing, wine myth-busting, distribution and so much more! Nero TV will also introduce you to the benefits of being a member of the Nero Club, which offers endless specials to its loyal consumers and membership base, all the way to getting wine delivered right to your doorstep.”
In addition to this platform, Thapelo Mokoena will also be introducing a new offering called The Artist Corner aimed at existing and aspiring Actors and Actresses. As part of this offering Thapelo will be talking to you from his home studio & sharing his insights while bringing industry experts, on occasion, to share some industry experiences and insights in a bid to equip those on the come up and those in the game with tools that will enable growth in their Artistic journeys.
“As an artist you receive so many requests for shadowing and mentorship, but it is impossible to sit with everyone across the table and mentor them so we have used the power of technology to democratize success in the entertainment industry by opening up this world, so that artists are able to learn fundamental aspects of the acting and film-making from renowned industry heavy-weights they are inspired by and look up to,” said Thapelo Mokoena.
Whether you’re a wine enthusiast or a budding entertainer you can now make a date with Thapelo Mokoena as he shares his two worlds through these immersive channels offering ongoing storytelling and industry insights, together with tips and tasting notes on picking the best bottle of wine for any occasion.
