Bob Mabena shares with us his highs and lows – & what it’s like working with Kuli.

Radio personality Bob Mabena (43) missed out on getting his matric because he was so tired from DJ-ing at a club the night before his final  exam, he couldn’t write it. It’s this sort of overriding passion for entertaining that has shaped his 25-year career on the airwaves. And it’s clear that he doesn’t regret a moment of it.

“I’d passed all my other subjects with flying colours,” he tells DRUM, “but because I missed that mathematics exam I don’t have matric to this day. But I believe everything that happened was supposed to happen.  Radio is in my blood and genes. I was born for it.”
