Jennah Chaltin breathes life into Lesotho’s entertainment industry
VOICE over artist, MC and model Jennah Chaltin is a breath of fresh air to the creative world and has rightly taken the Lesotho entertainment industry by storm.
Jennah made her first break at the beginning of May 2020 having done voice-over work for Lesotho Television’s (LTV) Lockdown Party.
She has since become a regular face on Lesotho’s first online platform for musicians, The Love Letter, as a co-host alongside comedian, Skaftin.
She joined the team on the show’s fifth episode which aired on 14 May 2020.
Speaking to the Xpress People on Friday, Jennah said she got her current gig after submitting an audition video to the show’s producer, Bokang Khoarai aka Mosotho oa Lesotho, who then offered her the job.
“My relationship with The Love Letter team has been implausible,” Jennah said.
“I got the slot by playing around and taking a promotional video which I eventually sent to Mosotho oa Lesotho.
“A few days later, I received a call from him requesting we shoot a similar video to the one I had sent.”
Born Mosele Chaltin Tsatsanyane, Jennah is twins with Jordin Chaltin Tsatsanyane and resides in Maseru East and was raised by her late grandmother, ‘Mamokherane Tsatsanyane, whom she describes as a “woman of integrity with a golden heart”.
“A pivotal moment in my upbringing was when she (‘Mamokherane) passed away in 2014. Automatically everything changed.
“The morals she instilled in me made me a brawny, ambitious and self-assured young woman. I attribute it all to my upbringing,” she said.
The 19-year-old attended Tiny Tots Primary School from 2003 until 2009 before moving to Ladybrand Academy in 2010 until 2014.
The following year, she moved to Welkom where she attended Harmony High School before spending her final year and matriculating from Navalsig High School in Bloemfontein in 2019.
“The reason for changing schools so often is because my father (politician Mokherane Tsatsanyane) was in political exile and therefore we could not stay in one place.”
She said her ambitions to further her education this year were stifled by the global outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. She hopes to pursue a degree in Cinematography in South Africa next year.
Apart from voice overs, she is currently working on a documentary of her life story which is being shot by Sweezy Mosehle.
The documentary will be released on YouTube later this month.
“I am working towards the expansion of the entertainment industry in Lesotho and I aspire to help advance the exposure of the country’ talent.
“I hope to become the leading lady in Lesotho’s entertainment industry, as well as hosting my own television show,” Jennah said.
