South African actress and voice artist Kgomotso Christopher has admitted that she is the voice behind MTN’s customer care line.
Kgomotso, who plays a role of Yvonne on Scandal! etv, revealed to fans that she is the MTN voice that tells you when you have insufficient funds.
The star took to social media to share a video clip of the popular “you have insufficient funds please recharge” among other services offered by MTN.
While many South Africans had unconsciously linked the voice to a white woman, Kgomotso Christopher, confirmed on social media that she’s been in the business for over six years.
“Yep. I am glad you remember what I’ve always said. Remember I said for long voicework was my main income stream because I had no fulltime acting work…in fact it was this consistent MTN work I was referring to (sic),” – Kgomotso replied to a Twitter user.
Another user thought the voice behind MTN customer care line was of a white woman, the actress responded by saying: “I am sure some of them are. They still use the recordings made with the previous voice artist before I started doing the prompts in 2012 (sic).”
“The recordings are called (IVR) internal voice recording. So the established style/tone of the recording voice. I have done the voice for a while. But there were other artists who may be white who also did and those recording are still also used. Also, when I am not available, they use a similar voice, so the MTN phone voice stays consistent (sic),” – she added.
