Zama Dube hosts The Face Off on weekdays from 10am-12pm on YFM.

Born in Kwa-Mashu, Durban, to a single mother, Zama Dube comes from a musical family of natural dancers and singers. She not only led her primary school choir, but also performed solo vocals at most school functions. At sixteen, she joined her school’s public speaking team, won the title of “Best impromptu speaker” in the KZN Toastmasters Junior competition, and later became Deputy Head Girl.

Her first experience with radio was when she joined Durban Youth Radio in her teens. After matric, she moved to the ‘City of Gold’ to study law and joined Wits campus and was soon scouted by radio veteran, Tom London to be among the first to work for Vodacom’s retail station Yebo Radio, hosting the 12-3pm weekday slot.

Zama is currently studying a joint honours degree at Wits while serving as a tutor for the university. A multi-faceted entertainer, singer, business woman and academic, Zama Dube represents the new-age urban youth refusing to be boxed in to anything regular and superficial. To further pursue her dreams in radio, she sent a demo recording to YFM and the rest is history.
