BORN and raised in Ashdown, Sifiso Mtolo always knew that he wanted to be a radio presenter.

Mtolo works for Divine Touch Radio, a Durban Christian radio station.

“I went to Ashdown Primary School and Siyahlomula High School. My experience in the broadcasting industry started when I worked as a news reader for Maritzburg Radio, part-time.

“From 2006 to 2009 I worked for the Human Sciences Research Council, but always had time to work on radio. In 2007 I got the opportunity of working for uMgungundlovu FM as a presenter. The show I presented for uMgungundlovu­ FM was about love and I enjoyed interacting with listeners on various subjects.

“I have also worked for Imbokodo­ FM, a Pinetown radio station. I have been with Divine Touch since 2013 and enjoy every second I am at work. My show is called ‘Itshe­ Legumbi’ and tackles family issues. I always knew I wanted to be behind the microphone because people always complimented me, saying that my voice had resonance,” said Mtolo.

His inspiration behind his love for radio was the late Ukhozi FM radio­ presenter, Cyril Kansas Bongani Mchunu.

“He made it sound so easy to be on radio. He loved his craft. On a local­ level I am inspired by the former P4 FM radio presenter, Brian­ Zuma. He loved his job and was always determined to give listeners his very best,” added Mtolo.

Mtolo’s love for the media industry has driven him to study in the multimedia communications field and to add to his journey, Mtolo has started a career in music.

“I have a gospel album - Isikhathi SikaNkulunkulu - that will be released at the end of February.”
