Another Radio DJ Nabs A TV Gig

It seems in South Africa the fast way to get into TV is by being a radio DJ. 5FM’s Dineo Lusenga is joining the likes of Dineo Ranaka, Bonang Matheba, Dj Sbu and Dj Fresh in front of the cameras. 

Dineo has been hosting the 1:00 to 4:00 weekend slot on 5FM since April 2010, she will now be the host of SABC1’s new youth-orientated talk show Ek Se Lalela.

Described as ‘edutainment’, the show will cover a variety of topics pertinent to aspiring young people in South Africa. 

Though she has worked on Ses'khona as a Production Manager this will be Dineo’s first foray into television presenting and, says the 25-year-old, 
“Ek Se Lalela is a platform for youth to discuss the issues that impact us on a day to day basis and how we in turn impact the world. We’re tackling real issues and not only will we discuss those issues but we’ll work on solutions for those problems with the help of guest speakers and experts. We’re also celebrating young people who are doing well in their respective fields, which will in turn inspire more young people to go out there and achieve.”
The show will premiere end of this months. Dineo will be pulling double-duty – continuing to host her 5FM show while hosting the 13 episodes of Ek Se Lalela. 

Asked what will become of her DJ'ing gig she said; 

“I love being on 5FM. Being on radio gives me a platform to engage with the country’s youth, something I’ll be putting to good use on Ek Se Lalela.”
Ek Se Lalela will air on SABC1 on Mondays from 17:00 to 17:30.

Phil they shouldve hired you to present the show. When are you getting your own show? I will tune in every week. You could bring a lot of thinking to the youth if you did. Think about it.
