Cedric Fourie

Cedric Anthony Fourie was born and raised in Orlando Soweto by a single mother. He attended multiple schools. Among them Greyville Primary School, Princess Primary School, and later joined Athlone Boys for his high school studies. He got a bursary and later on graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand and started to work as an engineer in networking.

His early career accomplishments were networking engineer roles at leading mobile firms among them Ericcson, Huawei Technologies, and Mobax Group. Even with his technical knowledge he could not resist his passion for arts and performance. He started attending auditions and as a result took cameo roles in prominent shows including Sokhulu & Partners, Harvest, Generations, and Isibaya. But, his career really blossomed when he landed the role of Lehasa Maphosa, during the 5th season of Skeem Saam. He is nothing like character of Lehasa Maphosa. He says in his own words “I share one or two similarities with Lehasa, but not everything! He’s a business man and can be very manipulative to get his way, but I’m not like that”, says Cedric.

 Lehasa Maphosa has had a roller coaster of a life these past few months.  After getting engaged to Khwezi on a lavish Valentine’s Day last year, he realised that he was still in love with an old flame that came in the form of a ‘Pretty’ lady. After Khwezi caught the two of them red handed getting a little too cozy for her liking she saw red and stabbed Lehasa in the chest, leaving him in a fatal condition. Thankfully he had since recovered, and shortly after needed to stand trial for Fanie’s murder, of which he received a not guilty verdict.   Amidst all of this, he also discovered that Khwezi was pregnant with his child and he was finally going to be a father. Something that he has always wanted.

Now that his wish of being a father to baby LJ has finally come true, we wonder if he plans to change his cunning ways any time soon.
