Four times a week, I spend 3 hours behind the microphone and I interview 4 people per show (sometimes more). That’s 12 interviews per week, 48 interviews per month and 576 per year.
I wish I had a copy of every interview I’ve done, I really do. Every interview is a lesson and it’s also growth. I’m pretty sure that I don’t sound the same as I did when I started out in November 2004 and I’m quite sure that I don’t sound the same on Sithakela Isizwe as I did when we first started the show in April 2012.
But I do have some of the interviews. Take a listen.
Sithakela Isizwe noZakes Bantwini
Here we experimented with something we had never done on the show previously; we hosted Zakes Bantwini with a live studio audience with a live performance to wrap up the show.
Sithakela Isizwe noDr Sandile Shabalala
It’s part of my job to discuss somewhat sensitive topics. Dr Shabalala came through to spend time with us in studio, discussing men’s health.
Sithakela Isizwe: Ikhaya Lethu noRev Hawu Mbatha
One of the highlights of this year has been the opportunity to be in conversation with Reverend Hawu Mbatha on Ikhaya Lethu. The insights and the wisdom have given me many lessons and food for thought.
Being on this platform is an amazing experience. Every day, I have the opportunity to share people’s journeys with the Ukhozi FM audience and I get to learn something new (whilst having fun!) every day.
