Joining us in the studio is radio personality and MC, Sechaba Gqeba, who is better known as Sechaba G. She has recently become the new host of the SABC2 female empowering, talk show, Motswako, for it’s nineteenth season.
Sechaba’s passion for radio began back when she was 18 years old, then in 2005 she went on to be selected for a radio workshop at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, and her career has taken off since then. She has had successful radio and MC careers, even being the MC at both Lional Richie’s All the Hits All Night Long Tour, and Mariah Carey’s Sweet, Sweet Fantasy Tour. Her radio career is something to be really admired over, as she has worked for a number of top, leading radio stations such as Radio 2000, SAFM, Kaya FM, and KFM. Before she got her gig on KFM, Sechaba had left Johannesburg to move to Cape Town, to try to crack it’s lack of black females in it’s entertainment industry.
She had almost felt like she hit a glass ceiling in Cape Town, until she got the KFM spot. She was a the station for a number of years until her contract was not renewed for a longer period. It however turned out to be a blessing as it was during this time that she was chosen as the new host of Motswako.
