#MyRadioPeople : Inanda FM’s Sibusiso ‘Mkhaba’ Madonsela

Ever since I launched this series I have been getting messages from many of you thanking me for this platform, I am glad that you enjoy reading the interviews I share on here about radio and it makes me happy learning that you find them very useful. Sibusiso ‘Mkhaba’ Madonsela is the Sports Presenter on Inanda FM‘s weekly show, The Rise & Rock Breakfast 6-9am. Read below as he shares his radio story.

Why radio? I grew up listening to radio sports programs. That’s where I started to have the love for radio and had a dream to be like the legendary Joe Hudla.
Which other radio stations have you worked at? I have worked at Zululand FM as a Sports Presenter and served as News Editor. I  found myself doing Morning Current Affairs within the station.
Did you study radio? I did a Diploma in Applied Journalism at Damelin, in Braamfontein Campus, Jo’burg.
Besides Radio, which other side projects are you currently busy with or are involved in? Besides Radio, I’m a founder of Mkhaba Expo Football Players Agent. I’m managing quite a number of good players, playing for teams in ABC Motsepe League and NFD. I’m also travelling around trying to help more young soccer players professionally.
Who is your South African Radio Icon? Joe Hudla.
What can we expect from you in the next 5 years? I normally don’t like making predictions, I just take everything as it comes. But of course – everyone want to live their dream, I’d say I would like to see myself swimming with the biggest fishes of this industry. Hopefully will be having few players that will be playing overseas, under my Organization.
How often do you listen to other radio stations and which radio stations do you usually listen to? Usually I would listen to my radio station Inanda FM, if it happens that I tune in other radio stations. It will be Metro FM and Ukhozi FM cause they have Sports Shows, like almost everyday.
What has working on radio taught you? Working on radio has taught me so many things, but more importantly it is the diversity and how to control your temper if you working with different types of people. Because honestly some colleagues will always push you to the corner.
What advice can you give to aspiring radio broadcasters? My advice to the young guys out there would be; if you want it so bad – just go for it, its never easy to break through to the industry… But if you keep on pushing and giving it your best shot, I assure you -you will make it, God Bless.

Thanks so much for reading, hope to see you again :)
