After studying Journalism at Rhodes University Tshepo’s professional journey began at Succeed Magazine writing entrepreneurial articles which led to his own column “Da Funki Generashun” in 1998. Tshepo’s writing caught the eye of John Hunt, head of renowned advertising agency TBWA Hunt Lascaris. John asked Tshepo to join the team and work on the MTN account as copywriter, producer and he managed to also voice a character in the MTN “Stix” radio campaign. This led to Tshepo’s first television voice over performance for an MTN TV commercial.
In 2004, after working heavily in advertising, Tshepo began leaning more towards recording voice overs. By 2006, Tshepo regularly booked voice work, radio and TV campaigns in English, Setswana, Sesotho and isiZulu. In 2008 Tshepo was approached by Mr Patrick Bogatsu, then Programme manager for the leading Durban based KZN regional radio station Gagasi FM to be the station’s imaging voice, a role he continued with for nine years.
Tshepo has voiced countless radio and TV commercials for top companies such as Vodacom, Total, SAB Breweries, Multichoice, Mzansi Magic, Old Mutual, DSTV, Nedbank, Mzansi Bioskop, Mzansi Wethu, Absaville, Multichoice Diski Challenge, Nedbank Cup, Kaya FM, MTN, Accenture, Cambridge Food, Anglo American and Telkom Mobile.
Tshepo has experience in writing, translating, voicing, and producing radio dramas, educational videos, e-learning, documentaries for all major industries including Mining, Financial Services, Automotive, Health, Entertainment, Retail, Government and more. Tshepo’s experience is wide and varied.
