On Air Personality
My real name is Nonkululeko Brummelda Sharn Maringa, was born 18th July 1995, in a family where love and forgiveness is our motto.
When I entered the media industry at the tender age of 13, it was all just a dream that came true too soon and Chiechie Rikhotso, who has been my producer since then, worked with me into understanding every aspect of radio that was there to learn, as I was still young and new.
My executive producer Mike Mayimele always wanted things on point and on time, this also helped grow personally and taught me how to manage myself from a personal perspective, the knowledge acquired from the station manager James Shikwambana is priceless, these people groomed me to be the golden voice of radio that I am today. I thank them for I have grown into radio and am able to stand out from any other kids and teen shows.
Inspired different key people in the media in all aspects, Cece Ravhele a young TV presenter who used to present Yo.TV, Corrin N’wa Kubayi Rikhotso groomed me to fall in love with music as we used to sing together while doing house chores at my grannies house, other close musicians that inspired include Patience Ntuli and Joyce Sibuyi Monareng.
It was in 2013 when my efforts started being recognized, as I won the best weekend presenter merit award, in 2014 I did it again, I won my second award for the most consistent show. Growing up in Malamulele , Limpopo, a town with no library or other essential facilities necessary for education, I continued to be an “A” student throughout my primary and high school days, also passed matric with flying colours, hence my album says it all, “Colours of Worship” released in December 2013, same year I completed my matric. I am now furthering my studies studying BA Communications, currently in second year and all things are going well through God and hard work.
I am a believer of Christ, proud member of Evangelical Presbyterian Church of South Africa (EPCSA), a poet, a designer, a musician and of course the golden voice of radio. A talented young elegant lady who loves dressing up, hungry for even better and finer things in life that are definitely heading my way.
All my life I have had scriptures that give me hope and keep me on my feet, Job 8:7, Habakkuk 3:17-18, there’s no day that goes by without me going through these two scriptures.
I am young and gifted, I shall continue to explore my talent, grow into the media industry, give back to the community and inspire the young generation through the airwaves and any other way possible.
