When did you start your radio job?
I started in 2009, after spending three months on a temporary stint at Botswana Press Agency (BOPA).
My experience at BOPA paved way for my career as I did news gathering and writing as well as reporting for radio current affairs programme, Tatediso ya dikgang, also known as Newsreel.
What attracted you to the media?
The love for journalism was born during my last years of senior secondary school, after taking interest in what my cousin brother, Mpho Dibeela was doing in the media industry.
What I can say is that he inspired me in many ways for me to want to pursue a career in journalism.
The Broadcasting journey is not all rosey, there are good days and very low and bad days.

Do you consider yourself a celebrity?
I don’t consider myself a celebrity because I am on the job, just like any other career someone may choose to follow. People treat me like they have a relationship with me. They would jump into a conversation with me and I would just go along with it and interact with them. At first it made me uncomfortable but as time went by I found it normal and it actually makes me feel appreciated.
