In 2014 Lesego Maake started this fictional blog story. “Unexpectedly, episode by episode, the blog stories started attracting thousands of readers through Facebook. 100 million views later, 450-plus episodes in, the ‘Diary of a Side Chick Makhwapheni’ series has loyal fans here in South Africa all the way to Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, United Kingdom, Lesotho and the USA” – says Lesego.

Besides the series having a great following, and its raunchiness, Lesego Maake has had some interesting encounters in relation to being the author of such series: Previous Facebook pages being reported and thus deleted by Facebook, fans confiding in him in relation to several incidents (often dangers) that follow the main character Sharon Letsoalo.

Born and raised in Limpopo, Sharon Letsoalo (the main character) makes it to the golden province of Gauteng to pursue her academic ambitions like most young people from rural areas. The lights of Gauteng dribble and turn her into what her mother never raised her to be.

The author – Lesego Lucky Maake – was born in Ga-Kgapane outside Tzaneen in 1985. He is the first of three children. He developed his love for reading and writing while in primary school. Lesego has written other blog stories that have amassed millions in views: My Rich Nigerian Boo, Marriage on the Rox, and, Chronicles of a Playa – Rhulani Chauke.
