Born in Phalaborwa, Limpopo, Makgofe completed most of her schooling life there. After moving to Johannesburg, she got a bursary to study travel & tourism, and decided to work part-time as she attended classes.
She had initially started off in the entertainment industry as a model, doing music videos and television advertisements and even made appearances on Muvhango and 90 Plein Street. She later then won an opportunity to become a presenter on the SABC show Motswako.
She now plays the character of Charity Ramabu on Skeem Saam.
Charity is a gorgeous woman and could still be the envy of some women in Turf. She is a speech therapist by profession and very driven. She is fashion forward, stylish and knows exactly how to go for the things that she wants from life. But she has made some bad decisions in the past and earned a somewhat tainted reputation for herself among Turf residents.
After spending some time in Scotland, Charity has made a surprising and sudden comeback.
Only this time, she returns in search for herself. She has had countless sleepless nights after her mother had revealed to her that she might possess a special gift. A gif that she needed to harness and help other around her with.
We see a different Charity from the one we used to know. One that is less materialistic and flamboyant to one who is more concerned with her spiritual wellbeing. Her new way of life however leaves her questioning herself and her abilities. And that in turn leaves her confidence to take a fall.
Will Charity be able to navigate her way through this new way of life?
