Mamohau Seseane

Mamohau Seseane

While Mamohau sadly does not personally know Charlize Theron, she comes “straight outta” Benoni, on the East Rand of Johannesburg, but now wakes up to much-loved views of Table Mountain. Within the Primedia stable, she has participated in a number of round-table discussions on sister talk radio station, Cape Talk, regarding social issues, as well as completing various voice-over projects. She relishes engaging in intimate conversation with her listeners, accompanied by love jams, on “Kfm Sunday Love Songs with Mamohau”, every Sunday, from 7-10pm.

With a voice described as “golden”, she is an accomplished voice over artist, having lent her voice to many corporate campaigns, TV and radio advertisements and social initiatives, including the Third Inter-ministerial Conference for Health and Environment in Africa. She also serves as the station voice for Gauteng’s biggest commercial talk radio station, 702, as well as CapeTalk. Mamohau thrives as a lifestyle model and performer. Her modelling portfolio exhibits her immense versatility and vibrant personality, having shot campaigns for leading brands including Levi's, Globacom, Nedbank, Pep, Lewis Stores, and Sportsman's Warehouse.

As a sought-after master of ceremonies, her portfolio includes the Sanlam Top Destination Awards, first TEDxStellenbosch Women’s event, Empower Me Women’s Day celebrations, Bubbles & Bliss annual charity event, and the LeadSA Heroes Awards, to name a few. She also masterfully hosts and facilitates dialogues & discussions, including the Chambord Freedom Day Women’s Lunch and Celebrity Power Panel, in conversation with successful celebrity women who are trailblazers in their fields.

While studying at Stellenbosch University, Mamohau was elected Irene Residence’s head of Critical Engagement, First Years, and Welcoming, and pioneered the very first Women Empowerment portfolio in her student community, a reflection of her passion for uplifting women and girls. As a law student, Mamohau is passionate about human rights, women empowerment and social justice. She aspires to truly be a changemaker and broaden access to legal mechanisms to effect tangible change. She has worked at The Justice Desk, an internationally-recognised and award-winning Queen’s Young Leaders human rights NPO. She is also the Vice Curator of the Cape Town Hub of the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community, a network of young working professionals committed to making a positive impact.

When she’s not working on her diverse career endeavours, Mamohau enjoys the cultural side of life, travelling, adventuring, and experiencing the beauty the world has to offer. She loves being engrossed in a new read while drinking copious amounts of tea, dancing (very badly), trying out new restaurants and cuisine, hiking, playing netball, and doing a “sho’t left” to explore South Africa’s local gems.

Mamohau's multi-talented nature, go-getting spirit and warmth makes her a true asset in any social sphere. Living by the maxim, "Who dares, wins", this young talent is definitely one to watch.
