More on Simnikiwe Dweni

Who are you?

I am a young, vibrant and dedicated lady from the dusty streets of Mothewell, N2. I live with my grandparents. They have taught me humility, love and respect. They have always taught me to be proud of my background. “NdingumXhosa othanda ulwimi lwakhe.”

What show do you host?

I host a show called Izimvo zabantwana which is aired on Saturday mornings between 09:05 – 09:30 it is aimed at children between the ages of 7 – 12 years. The programme seeks to develop a young child and keeps them rooted in their culture as they engage with the world.

When and how did your career start?

When i was 12 years old, i was given an opportunity to start broadcasting amongst radio giants. I am still humbled by sharing the microphone with Maka-asi and Sis’Tsidi who are my role models in radio.

What have you achieved thus far within your career? What are your career highlights?

Radio has taught me to be true to myself and respect our loyal listeners. I know I am privileged to be part of the SABC team/ Mhlobo Wenene FM, every Saturday morning (09:05 – 09:30) I continuously strive to grow the listenership for the programme. 

Besides radio, what do you do?

I like to do debates. My future goal is to become a lawyer but I will also love to stay longer on the Umhlobo Wenene FM an serve the station.
