An Aganang FM radio presenter was honoured at the Liberty Radio Awards in Sandton on Saturday. These awards recognise and celebrate excellence in the South African radio industry.
Nthabiseng Motlhodi (27) scooped the Bright Stars award with good reason. She can produce programmes, write radio drama scripts and do voice-overs for adverts.
She was born in Setlagole and raised by a single mother, Mapule Motlhodi. Her Itsoseng show was nominated in both the daytime show category and the bright star category.
She told the Herald it was the first time in her life that she was left speechless. ‘I am so happy that I received that award and I would like to thank Liberty for honouring me. It recognises hard work and that is what we do. Recognition is everything to us,’ she declared. Nthabiseng who also presents the ‘Hits countdown top 40’ says ‘radio has always been in me and part of my life. I don’t see it as a career or job, it is something that defines my personality – I live radio,’ she exclaimed.
Sadly, her mother passed away in 2012 and could not share her daughter’s achievement. Nthabiseng consoles herself with the fact that it was the same year that she joined Modiri FM and that opportunities opened up for her.
The versatile presenter later came to Potchefstroom and joined the Aganang community radio station.
She says she likes exploring the different aspects of radio and does not limit herself or focus on just one thing.
The ambitious, talented presenter sees herself making waves as a fully-fledged member of the national industry in five years’ time. ‘It doesn’t matter whether it is presenting or production,’ she said.
