Celebrating 15 years in broadcasting, Sechaba Gqeba continues to take her career to new heights, proving that you can have it all! The TV and radio personality joined SABC 2’s flagship women’s talk show, Motswako, a popular primetime South African TV show, aimed at empowering women, in 2018, for three seasons and subsequently wrapped up season 20 with a SAFTA nomination for Best Variety Show. Sechaba was also selected to host the final season of Motswako, which aired weekly from the 25th of August 2022 on Thursdays – 20h30 on SABC2.
Recently, the broadcast extraordinaire has just completed her well-handled tenure hosting SAFM’s daytime talk show, Living Redefined, infusing SA’s best lifestyle topics with a dash of current affairs as well as pertinent social issues. Gqeba grew up in Vereeniging, Gauteng, and discovered her love for radio at the age of 18 after attending the Grahamstown National Arts Festival in 2006, where she was selected for a radio workshop. She kicked of her radio career in 2007 through an opportunity on Vaal Community Radio. In 2008, she worked as a news intern for EWN and went on to later work with SAfm and Radio 2000 as a news anchor. Eventually Gqeba joined Kaya FM as an overnight music show host, in an attempt to diversify and expand her portfolio outside of news. This then later prompted her move to Cape Town to join Primedia Broadcasting as a lunch show host on KFM.
