What inspired you to join radio?I started as an MC (Master of ceremonies) from primary school and the joy on people’s faces and the feeling of fulfilment that I personally felt whenever I was on stage inspired me to want to entertain. When radio came along in 2018 everything just fell into place, I felt like I belonged and I still do every time I turn on that Mic.
Who is your favourite all time broadcaster?There are so many broadcasters that have inspired me throughout the years. Ones who’ve had many years of experience and those who are fairly new and thus picking one is difficult but I will have to go with DJ Sbu.
What’s the one quote you live by?
“It will all be a part of my testimony” which simply explained means I believe that everything happening in my life is connected and one day I will be able to tell my story of triumph to help inspire others never to give up regardless of their circumstances.
What’s been your best and worst moment on air?For me being on air is literally where I am at my happiest and thus I do not categorise moments as best or worst. For an example doing a 3 hour show without script or support whilst standing in, some broadcasters would consider it to be their worst but for me it’s not because it helped me grow so much as a broadcaster and that would be one of the best moments when I grow. Overall for me being on air especially on 88.1 is nothing but amazing literally all the time.
What’s the funniest thing you have ever heard? I grew up ekasi and thus we would make a fire and gather around and just straight out tell stories and make jokes about literally anything to entertain ourselves when we didn’t have electricity. One story that stands out has to be when Malome Oupa would tell us a story of how he got beaten by a ghost one time around the Ams and the ghost explained to him why it was beating him and it said to him “ You walk around here in the morning, afternoon, night and now you want to cross over? Where should we walk?” He woke up at the cemetery after the beating. What’s amazing is how he used humour to warn us about the dangers of us as kids being in the streets late.
Game night or movie night? I am a people’s person and therefore I would have to say game night, with tons of friends and family. I cherish those moments over a lot of things.
What’s the most played song on your music playlist? Hustlers Prayer – 25K and A-Reece
What was the last lie you told?Now it would no longer be a lie if I admit that it was and told you about it right? I can’t give the last one but the second last one where I lied about being at work when I was chilling at home just to avoid meeting up with someone I did not want to meet up with.
If you had to pick an age that you would be for the rest of your life, which age would that be? My age right now, simply because I am at a position where I am independent, my views are independent because of the amount of research I can do for myself, I make my own decisions , I am very passionate and energetic. Being able to do things for myself, by myself and in my own way is amazing and this age allows that especially at the pace I am going. It’s amazing.
Name your favourite equipment /tool you use on air? As a presenter it should be the Microphone but yoh I love the tech side, running desk! Desk has to be my favourite tool.
Who is your go to person for anything and everything in life? It would have to be my mom, sister, partner and mentor. The combination of those equals the A-Team. I sort of have a person for everything in life.
