Join the sweetest radio personality every Sunday night for the best mix of music and good conversation to get you ready for the week ahead.
We wanted to give listeners a chance to get to know our Sunday presenters, let's chat to Mamohau.
WHAT’S YOUR TYPICAL SUNDAY LUNCH SPREAD?
Sundays are all about roast potatoes and those scrumptious seven colour meals. When I don’t pop something in the oven myself (and to eliminate the ever-present possibility of me burning the house down), I love getting the popular Sunday lunch from our neighbourhood grocery store – roast chicken, beef, lamb, vegetables… you name it. It sells out fast so you need to get there early. So yum!
WHEN YOU COOK, DO YOU PREFER TO FOLLOW A RECIPE OR A BIT OF IMPROV?
A little bit of both. I like following recipes and then adding my own spin– even with ingredients that might not necessarily make sense. Often I just grab what’s in front of me and hold thumbs that when I add something to the pot, I will just hear my grandmother’s voice in my head saying “That’s enough, my child!”
WHAT’S YOUR IDEAL SUNDAY ROUTINE?
Early morning wake-up, a Sunday morning walk or Deer Park hike and then I freshen up to go to church. Afterwards its lunch, outings with friends, a craft or food market, hanging out on the Sea Point promenade, or even just curling up with a good book and our cat, Timmy. Finally, the cherry on top - Kfm Sunday Love Songs from 7pm.
NAME 3 MUST-VISIT PLACES IN CAPE TOWN.
I would say Robben Island, the District Six Museum, the top of table mountain (it's almost dreamlike), Boulders Beach, Zeitz MOCAA, the Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay, the Old Biscuit Mill… Okay, I clearly struggle to just name 3. Do them all.
WHAT'S YOUR “BACK IN MY DAY, WE…”?
Back in my day we still bought CDs and sent songs to each other via Bluetooth! Then the space on your phone would run out so you’d have the mammoth decision of whether you were going to delete Akon or Timbaland to make space for “Unfaithful” by Rihanna. Times may change, but the music lives on!
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THE PLACE YOU GREW UP?
Ah, my beautiful hometown of Benoni – the land of track pants and Tomy takkies. I feel blessed to have grown up in such a multi-cultural and multi-lingual community – a reflection of our country. I went to an English school, grew up in a black African home on a street where we experienced celebrations of Diwali and Ramadan, all while being taught how to make koeksisters and hertzoggies by Ouma Hettie who lived opposite us. Many people from my home town have gone on to do great things – I’m proud of that.
HOW DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO FEEL WHEN LISTENING TO YOUR SHOW?
I want them to feel how ballads sound. Warm. Relaxed. At home. It’s an intimate space for us to share stories, express and journey with emotion, all while winding down to the most love songs to make us feel great. You will feel at home at whatever point in the love spectrum you may be - between 1 Corinthians “Love Is...” and Tina Turner’s “What’s Love got to do with it”, as a friend of mine describes it. Kfm Sunday Love Songs are your space and your time for all things love.
Catch her show every Sunday from 7pm to 10pm.
