Who are you?

Fondly known as Babe-Zee I am Zintle Mbusi I was born 27 years ago in Ngangelizwe clinic in Mthatha. When I was 5 years old we moved to Nyandeni great place which I call  home now and that makes me a proud rural girl. I am the 3rd born of 6 siblings  3 beautiful girls and 3 handsome guys, sad though my elder sis who is the eldest passed on in 2012.

Growing up I was the naughtiest of them all, always being beaten up I grew up like a boy. I did my lower grades at Nonesi jss, and my higher grades at Attwell Madala High school in Mthatha, currently I hold a media and broadcasting ( audio-visual production) diploma and journalism certificate. I grew up listening to radio i used to fall asleep listening to it and woke up in the early hours of the morning and listen to it again. I made my firtst call on Umhlobo Wenene fm radio when I was 10 years old and participated in an educational programme hosted by the woman who inspired me  Makazi(Zola Majiza) after I used the phone without permission at home while my mother was walking out her friend.

I host Abahlali abangalali on Saturdays and Sundays between 01H00 and 05H00 am.

I spent only seven months there before I joined the big league Umhlobo Wenene Fm in 2012 after I was voted by the public as the best presenter in a presenter search competition.
