Actress and media personality Thando Thabethe has her cooking skills tested, as she joins us for the cook-along. Thando a.k.a Thabooty currently hosts the 3-6pm Thabootydrive on 5FM.
Even though Thando has a career for herself as an actress, professional DJ, and presenter, she has obtained a Bcom Accounting degree, before she joined the entertainment industry. Her radio career began back in 2008, back when she had a spot on campus radio station UJFM, by 2011 she moved to mainstream radio, joining YFM. Thando rose to fame and got her big break on the SABC1 sitcom My Perfect Family. That was followed by her first on screen presenter gig, as a co-host on the music show Club 808, in 2013. That same year her star began to rise appearing in a number of television programs such as appearing in the second season of e.tv romance anthology series Mzansi Love: Kasi Style entitled Sexy.com. In the same year she also left YFM to join the Roger Goode Show on 5FM, before she was ultimately given her own show. She also went on to host the SABC1 DJ reality competition talent search 1s and 2s. Following that she went on to appear in Generations: The Legacy as Nolwazi.
Her star seems to just keep on rising as in 2016 she landed her first lead role in a feature film, “Mrs Right Guy”, alongside Dineo Moeketsi, Thapelo Mokoena and Lehasa Moloi. The following year she went to host the South African Music Awards alongside Somizi.
