On Wednesday, Officer Bae aka Jesse Suntele – who plays the enigmatic young cop by the name ‘Tuelo Hla’ on Mzansi Magic’s telenovela The Queen – did the cutest thing for his baby sister for her birthday. 

The teenager who is a huge fan of media personality Maps Maponyane was shocked straight to tears when she answered her Face Time call to find Maps singing happy birthday to her.

She is definitely experiencing the perquisites of having a ‘famous’ brother. Jesse Suntele is not only the actor who won The Top Actor Africa competition, but also the guy causing a social media frenzy after every episode of The Queen.

But how well do you know him, here are five fun facts about:

 - He had an Afro and braces back in high school

 - He doesn’t think of himself as a model, even though he looks like one

 - J Cole is his favourite international rapper

 - Each of his abdominal muscles have names (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet and well as Donner and Blitzen who are still under construction.)

 - He created his Instagram account just to enter the rapping competition #VuzuHustle
