Thapelo Mokoena: Man’s ‘beard is his crown’

Thapelo Mokoena is well known for acting roles in popular series like Bulletproof, but it’s his grooming that makes him the original goatee “G.O.A.T”.

“Grooming is a very important part of the African man’s daily routine and Bakoena Beard Care was developed for the modern African man who is looking to enhance that trendy bearded look,” Mokoena, the founder and CEO of Bakoena Brands told EWN.

“As someone who has enjoyed experimenting with scents, textures and products, I decided to embark on an experiential journey to create authentically African products which cater to the unique needs and textures of African hair and skin,” Mokoena explained.

In the promotional video, viewers get a glimpse of the available products.

“If a man’s crown is represented by his beard, and his wisdom by how well he nurtures it, then where we’re from, we call that man a real goat,” Mokoena says in the video.


To create the Bakoena Beard Care range, he partnered with award-winning aesthetician and somatologist Jared Hines. EWN reports

The products are infused with the scents of an African home, paying tribute to Mokoena’s Basotho and Zulu lineage. 

In a recent Instagram post, the company shared the importance of adding oil to your facial grooming routine.

“One of the best methods to keep your beard feeling and looking healthy is using beard oil. You’ll see results as soon as you apply some. It quickly eliminates beard irritation, dryness, & dandruff while also giving your facial hair a soft, manageable, and healthy shine. Nourishes the skin on which the beard grows. Your beard is only as healthy as the skin it grows on,” the post reads.
