Actor Aaron Moloisi has defended his long-time friend and athlete Caster Semenya in a recent interview, saying that people have a misconception that she "arrogant and illiterate".

The After Nine actor explained in a True Love interview that Caster is actually one of the most "genuine" people he knows.

Aaron and Caster are both from Limpopo, and Aaron shared that they met before Caster became 'Caster the golden girl'. He added that he is irritated by the misconception that people have of his friend.

  • WATCH: Remember how you thought Babes can't dance? Check this outIn December 2016 after a rather stale performance on stage, people accused Babes Wodumo of not being able to dance! The cheek!  

"The  misconception about Caster is that she's arrogant and illiterate. She's none of those things," he said.

He went on to say how Caster isn't fazed by fame and how she appreciates the smallest of victories. Aaron also shared that the athlete is a horrible dancer but is also quite the comedian.

  • I spoke for Joe because he could not, Cynthia ShangeVeteran actress Cynthia Shange said that she was tired of seeing actors exploited by the entertainment industry and so she decided to finally break her silence and speak out at Joe Mafela's memorial. 

"I met her in 2006. We clicked immediately. I treasure how our friendship isn't based on what we do, we just have a close brother and sister relationship," he said.
