SA gets four hours with YOU Spectacular Favourite Radio Personality nominee Anele Mdoda every day on air, but YOU had her all to ourselves for a few minutes to chat her career, her 30th birthday and her crazy love for Beyoncé. 

1. How would you say you’ve grown from when you first went on air?

Not much still as risky and edgy but I think I am more myself which is what sets the good and great personalities apart

2. Who were your favourite presenters on radio as a youngster and why?

Jeremy Mansfield, Shadow Twala, Bob Mabena, Jenny Crwys Williams and Nikiwe Bikitsha as a newsreader which made me start listening to 702.

3. What is your most memorable moment on radio?

I love doing interviews, they are my highlight, the researching all the way to the actual interview so interviewing Neyo, Oasis, Snow Patrol, WyCleaf Jean, Hugh Jackman the lot.

4. What is your most cringe worthy moment on-air?

I wanted to ask Grant if his mom used to wack him as a kid and I said wank. Enough said!

5. Where would you like to see your career go in the next five years?

Still broadcasting naturally but with a cook book out, I watched Heston Blumenthal on Masterchef and he says good recipes take two years to develop and I believe that so that is what I am doing now perfecting recipes and writing them down.

6. You recently turned 30-years-old, does this bear any significance in your life?

I generally love birthdays 'cause I love aging, the no stress of being older man, it is such a blessing!

7. What is the most important lesson you learned in your 20s?

To forgive quick, ask for forgiveness quicker and be kind, especially to yourself. Oh and drink water.

8. You hurt your ankle at your party, was that due to a lot of dancing?

So Micasa and Thebe performed at my party and it  was honestly the best night ever and in that best night ever I landed funny on my ankle after landing funny after my stage jump, I only felt it the next day though ...

9. What was your favourite gift?

Everything, Pyjamas, Recipe stand, Lamer skin products, @Home vouchers since I am a Martha Stewart, love, a TV in my room that I have been threatening to buy myself for years! Pots (yes, I love pots) champers glasses, a lantern, picnic basket, candles, perfumes - it was a good birthday.

10. We know you LOVE Beyoncé. Where were you when you first heard about the Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Solange debacle?

I was on air about to hand over to Greg and Lucky and they came in shouting "whats up with your family YO!"  Beyoncé stayed calm though! My girl, show me your ways Beyoncé.

Find Love!
