Radio DJ, MC, Presenter & Actress that loves her Heels!

Thando Thabethe is a 22 year-old cutey making waves in a major way. Her titles include being a Radio DJ (YFM), an MC, a Presenter and an Actress. This mami is definitely one to LOOK OUT FOR!

If you’d spend a day with your favourite female Hip Hop artist who would it be and why?

To be honest, there’s none that stands out for me more than Nicki Minaj. I’m not a huge fan but there are some tracks such as ‘Moment for Life’ that really stand out for me. She does however, tend to lose the plot at times but she’s running the streets in terms of female Hip Hop at the moment.

Snapbacks or Tattoos? Which would you choose?

A lil’ bit of both never hurt anybody.

Any other talents we don’t know about?

[laughs] unfortunately not, I really wish I could sing, but maybe in another life time

Which means more to you? Radio or TV?

I get this question a lot, my first love was TV until I was introduced to the phenomenon that is Radio…It was love at first sight! I love them both equally and I hope to continue doing both.

Having your own show on YFM 99.2, what does YFM as a brand represent?

YFM is the Capital of Youth Culture!!! I grew up listening to the station and being a part of it, better yet, having my own show at the station is mind blowing! You cannot deny the impact that the brand has had on young Black South Africans, it DEMANDS attention! It let’s you know that it is here!

Hottest Hip Hop track for you right now?

Reason  – Do It Like I Can

Tell us about University and your Degree?

I studied at the University of Johannesburg (old Rau) and achieved my BCom Accounting Degree, which I’m very proud of.

Heels or Sneakers?

I’m a heels girl most of the time.

Describe Thando in a nutshell

God-fearing, loving and ambitious. Trust me when I say no one can stop my GO!
