Personality Profile

Kwenisto

Let's connect:

Born and bred in MOLETJIE

Born and bred in MOLETJIE. I’m a very hip and happening, socialite, energized, young funky radio presenter. I’m currently hosting Youth Show on Thobela fm called Moswa Le Bokamoso (youth and the Future).

I grew up loving radio and in class I always wanted to be a radio presenter. I would imitate each every Thobela fm presenters. People were always telling me that I will one day become a very good radio presenter.

After completing my matric in 2006, I went to further my studies at University of Limpopo, Turfloop Campus where I got my degree in MEDIA STUDIES. I always knew that I want to do something with Media related courses.

I also learnt on my arrival that the university had Campus radio where I applied to volunteer. I was turned down several times being told that am not good. I never gave up.

My big break came on 20 August 2007 when I passed the news-reading audition at Radio Turf. I worked in news room for few months before I was moved into programming where I made my name.

Listeners gave me several names such ‘The bloozing Master’, Limpopo king of airwaves but the name that stuck with me was Kwenisto taken from my original name Makwena.

My focus was always to work for a bigger corporate company like SABC. I got the opportunity to work here in April 2014 where I was given The Midday show for youth. As I a young person I find it very easy and challenging to work with youth. I don’t have to put myself in their shoes because automatically  I am in their shoes. Being jobless, peer pressure, crime, Hiv/Aids  and many other things are the major challenges that each and every young person is facing every day.

The show that I do is helping youth in so many things. I can look back and say there we did it as youth programme. There are those who are working today because of the show. There are those who are at school because of the show. The show is doing a great impact on the lives of young people. Makwena is involved in motivational talks. Coming to work is no longer a job but a hobby.  Radio affords me an opportunity to make a difference in somebody’s life as well as touch lives. To me radio is a calling. Celebrities are made while stars are born. So I see myself as a star.

Catch me Mon-Fri @ 14h00-15h00.
