If you had to sum up yourself in 10 seconds, what would you say?
I am a principled-centred and purpose-driven individual. I am human and nothing human is alien to me. Do not be serious around me, I will laugh. I am comfortable in my own skin and don’t have much of choice. It’s the only one I have. I absolutely love listening to music, creating music, reading and goofing around. I am opinionated.
Where were you born and raised?
I was born in Durban and raised in Durban.
In which towns have you lived and where are you living currently?
I have lived in Durban for 29 years. Cape Town for 3 months, I don’t know if this counts for something. At the moment, I am living between Durban and Johannesburg. I’ll move to JHB fully by June.
Which languages can you speak?
English and isiZulu
What are your favourite towns or cities visited in SA and abroad?
My favourite city is Jozi. If you can make it in Jozi, you can make it anywhere. The city is demanding and challenging. I love challenges.
What are your hobbies?
Reading, listening to music and radio, writing, performing, looking cute, goofing around and cycling.
What is the craziest thing you’ve done?
Dated 5 people at once!!!! Just kidding. The craziest thing I’ve ever done is relocate to Jozi to pursue my dream of being a 5FM presenter.
Which pets do you have, if any?
I don’t understand people who have pets. Animals belong in the wild, not in houses. I am a plant dad though. LMAO.
What’ll Google say you search for most often?
Directions to shops near me… eg. “woolies near me”, “POSTNET near me’… I suck at directions.
5 famous people, living or not, that you would have a kuier with?
I googled kuier and it means people I’d have a drink with. Lets gooo…
- Nelson Mandela: I want him to explain what he envisaged the rainbow nation to look like and work, I think we’ve lost the plot. LOL. Seriously though, I want uTata to teach me how to be a better South African. I love this country and its people.
- Beyonce: Ma’am, I want your work ethic. I want to dance and sing for 3 hours!! Teach me your ways!!! Also, I want to thank her for not continuing with the acting…
- Kanye West – Teach me how to be cool!!!
- Bob Mabhena – Bob, please teach me how to make great radio!!!
- Anele Mdoda- Girl, teach me how to work the system.
Favorite movies and / or series of all time?
Movie: Diary of a Mad Black Woman. I love this movie because it teaches us that if you have it, you can lose it. If you lose it, you can always start afresh. A fresh start can actually be a blessing.
Series: I am slipping between Unseen and How to Get Away with Murder…

Which things in the world (and people) do you dislike?
I hate oppression/discrimination in all its forms, it robs us of the opportunity to build a better country. I dislike people who don’t use coasters. I don’t particularly enjoy hanging around people who don’t like to give others a chance to speak. Also, I stay away from people who talk more than they listen. Oh, also, don’t drink and drive around me. I don’t like Uber drivers who sleep in their cars…the car smells of sleep…
Which things make the world (and people) awesome?
People who listen to you with sparkling eyes when you speak. Music makes the world a better place. Petrol Attendants who wash your windscreen and clean your rearview mirrors.
What’s your favourite thing about your 5FM gig?
I am here. I feel at home here! I don’t what this means, but I’m excited to find out. I feel alive again.
