Born in 1936 in Sekhukhune Land, in the Gauteng, South Africa.
Lives and works Sekhukhune Land.

In 1967, Segogela was trained as a craftsman at the Standard Bank Center in Johannesburg. His works, for which he had no formal artistic training, were inspired by the Bible and developed further through his own visions. His activities in the anti-Apartheid ANC movement, his membership, from 1954 on, in the Church of Five Missions, influenced his work considerably. His goal, "to save the world from violence and horror", started in the late 1980's with the work "Satan Fresh Meat Market", with its figures of angels and demons. Segogela, very concerned with the future of mankind, he paid as much attention to the development of large African urban centres, as to the problems of rural life. Each of his installations is the result of his long and meticulous work as a sculptor, in which the characters and the objects are precisely composed, detailed and painted. Segogela wants to transmit messages linked to religion, politics, culture, feelings, and all the activities of life. His installations reveal his sensitivity, humour and irony.
