Who is Tshepo Motaung?

My name is Tshepo Motaung an adventurous YouTuber, speaker, student and forward thinker who is interested in the well-being of the people around me and the incredible stories that each person has within themselves and the various experiences they have had throughout their lives. I focus on showing the hidden treasures within South Africa whether that be the uniqueness of little coffee shops or the wide array of incredible charities and humanitarian initiatives that often go unnoticed.

What’s your favorite childhood memory?

Riding my bicycle around my neighbourhood and beyond with my friends looking to see how far we could pedal ourselves while having the best time doing it. Not counting all the falls we had along the way.


If you could have a do-over in life, what would you do differently?

I honestly do not think I would do anything differently. All the mistakes I have made and things I have experienced have all contributed to the person I am today.

What do you feel most proud of?

I feel most proud of the opportunities I have been able to be a part of from being afforded the opportunity to speak to various schools and organisations to filming videos for Redbull and Lamborghini to being able to work with the most incredible people I could hope to be surrounded by. Especially for the size and scale of my online presence. I always said I would rather have quality and do what I love rather than chase subscribers and followers. I never let social media dictate the way in which I behave and I stay true to my morals.

If you could keep only 3 possessions, what would they be and why?

My bicycle because that brings me joy and peace of mind, my camera so I could continue to record and share all my experiences and my sunglasses because they have quickly become a part of everything I do.

What do you want your tombstone to say?

He loved life and all the people in it. #HeLived.

What is Life Of Tsh?

Life of Tsh is about my passion for engaging and speaking to people while being the story teller I never had growing up.

What is your favorite kind of coffee?

Pour over for sure!

In which coffee shops are we likely to bump into you?

I’m usually found lurking around Jozi Blue, Naked Coffee and Bean There Coffee harassing the baristas or chatting to people over a cup of coffee.

What does a perfect day look like?

Waking up and driving as far as possible with friends on an adventure to find places we’ve never seen before going out of our comfort zones to experience life.
