Host of Lelika Yehova Ihlabathi

Who are you?

I am a mother, a grandmother, a sister and a woman of God. I was born in Peddie, Eastern Cape. I have a daughter (Ma-Asie) and a grandchild (Kungawo) whom I deeply love.  Both my parents have died and I am left with my siblings, one brother and two sisters.  I am a Christian and a strong believer in serving the Lord and His people.

What show do you host?

I host a religious women’s programme called, “LelikaYehova Ihlabathi Nenzaliseko Yalo” on Thursdays between 09:00 – 12:00 during the day. The objective of the show is to comfort listeners in distress and to reiterate the word of God. I always seek to encourage the discouraged, give hope to the hopeless.

When and how did your career start?

By profession, I am a qualified teacher who spent 22 years teaching children. I ventured into broadcasting in 1989 when I was freelancing a popular kiddie’s show called, “Eyeentsatshana”. My teaching experiences continued and broaden into radio. I drew support from the late Sis Fez Matiyase who became my mentor until her passing. In 1991, I was then taken permanently. I enjoy what I am doing now and it has become second nature to me no longer a job.

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

I’ve obtained an important skill of public speaking and I’ve been able to travel all over South Africa where I meet diverse people who surprisingly listen to my program. I have received numerous awards and many achievements including acknowledgement by different churches, my hometown Mqwashu & Intlalo yakwaXhosa my culture from King Sigcawu. Being in media has exposed me to many prominent people one person who I admire and I had a chance to interview was Pumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka- 1st black female deputy President of South Africa.

Besides radio, what do you do?

God has given me many talents, such as:

  • I MC for different events (gospel shows, weddings, graduations, 21st Birthday etc)
  • Motivational speaker especially to youth, elderly and women
  • I plan before I execute any task, I multitask, I complete and deal with challenges as they arise.
  • People do not know I experience the same problems as they do too.

“ I’ve learnt that it is not what I have in my life but who i have in my life that counts.”
