A Small town girl with big city ambitions. Sechaba Gqeba (now the new Motswako Presenter on SABC 2 ) & also commonly known as Sechaba G’s venture into broadcasting begun in Gauteng. She cut her teeth in community radio, before winning a region-wide talent/radio show at Highveld 94.7 which catapulted her into commercial radio.
Not being one to settle; her role as news reader for some of South Africa’s leading national radio platforms: SAfm & Radio 2000 were overtaken by her desire to hold her own radio show; & that’s what she got when the opportunity availed itself on Kaya FM.
Sechaba Gqeba has now successfully made the transition into television and will be seen on a nationwide platform when she hosts SABC 2’s weekly show, Motswako. The new season of Motswako appeals to the modern day woman and has an inspirational and aspirational quality that validates the dreams of women who never even imagined that their dreams were valid. The Motswako woman relies on Motswako to be her best friend, sister, confidant and great advisor. The show will give insights into how she will navigate through her life as a business woman, mother, sister, wife/partner and woman! The Motswako woman finds joy and laughter, even in tragic situations. She appreciates and relates to the honesty she finds on Motswako. Motswako gives that woman a tool kit to empower her to live her best life!
