Get To Know 2020 DSTV MVCA Favourite Radio personality Nominee – Spitch Nzawumbi

It is not every day one comes across a full package of talent, a vibrant personality, looks,  a voice to die for and brilliance, all in one person. Siphiwo Nzawumbi, affectionately known as “Spitch” is that rare jam and more. Born in the Eastern Cape e-Mthatha, this broadcasting maverick has earned his spot in the cut-throat TV & Radio industry by becoming a radio darling loved by many and a familiar  TV face to others. It is not just his love for the art of broadcasting that makes him exceptional but his genuine love and care for people. 

To many, Spitch is a familiar face from his debut consumer affairs talk show – Yilungelo Lakho on SABC 1. A show that launched him to millions of viewers on the channel and showcased his ability to converse on serious, light hearted and socio-economic issues that affect South Africans from all over the country. He has also hosted shows like Sunday Live, Question Time and Rights and Recourse.  To others, he is the thought provoking conversation stirrer on social media who doesn’t fear controversy and getting people talking about issues that affect them- even the uncomfortable. In 2017, he co-founded the popular Black Twitter Awards- a virtual awards ceremony which took social media by storm on its last leg in 2019. To millions more, he is the velvet voice with a wicked sense of humour on Umhlobo Wenene FM  as host of the popular lunch-time show Sijik’ilanga #SJL on weekdays from 13:00-14:00.  

Growing up in rural Mount Frere , Nzawumbi shares fond memories and lessons learnt from his grandmother’s house- whom he affectionately talks about in the few chapters of his web-series ’30-Years and 30 Lessons’. This is a compilation of life lessons he has learnt in his 30-years from family to career lessons, which he plans to compile into a book.  “I am currently busy with my book and will share details and publish when it’s done. People can look forward to many life experiences and lessons and take something for themselves”, he says. There is no doubt that Spitch wears many hats as his talent cannot be confined or limited into one stream. 

Currently, Spitch Nzawumbi is one of the popular names  nominated on this year’s much anticipated DSTV Mzansi Viewer’s Choice Awards #DSTVMVCA under the ‘Favourite Radio Personality’ category, alongside radio legends like Dj Fresh. Talking about this nomination, he says “I’m a believer of God’s anointed and appointed time. This recognition is exactly that”. The awards will be held on the 14th of March 2020 at the ticket pro DOME.
