We are joined in the studio by actress, radio personality, motivational speaker, and musician, Dawn Thandeka King. Dawn is popularly known for her current roles as MaZet on ‘Lock Down’, which is South Africa's first all woman prison series. She is also known for being Lindiwe “Mangcobo” Xulu, in Uzalo, which is currently South Africa’s number 1 most watched series.

The Kwa-Zulu Natal born actress discovered her love for acting while still in high school in Eshowe, but she went on to matriculate at a school in Umtata, in the Eastern Cape, where she stayed for a short time. After that she completed her Drama Studies at the former Technikon Natal. While still in varsity, she was a part of numorous stage plays, where she got to work with a number of great stage directors, further exposing her to the industry. At first she joined the corporate world of varsity, but found her calling for the entertainment world, to be too strong.

Dawn had been radio personality a while, and a brand ambassador for a number of brands before, but she only made her first acting debut back in 2012 when she appeared on Inkaba, on Mzansi Magic. Now she is a mother of 5 children, an award winning actress, a talented singer, and on two of the biggest and most beloved shows on South African television screens.
