5FM’s Fikile Moeti, aka ‘FIX’ is a well-known South African Radio DJ, Club DJ and TV Personality. Fix, made MTV history when she became the first female VJ on ‘MTV networks Africa’.
The entrepreneurial 32-year-old beauty has graced our screens since 2006 when she won a nationwide competition to become MTV base’s newest presenter. Fix at the time a student at Cape Town University studying Film & Media, was picked from obscurity by MTV base from thousands of applicants and immediately joined the fast track.
Since then the multi-talented entertainer also joined the ‘5FM’ Radio Jocks, hosting her very own dance show ‘Saturday Night Fix’ between 10pm and 1pm playing the best of Electronic Dance Music (EDM). She has also discovered many bedroom DJs over the past 4 years giving them an opportunity to showcase their DJ skills on her show.

Fix bought her first vinyl at the age of 15 and fell in love with the DJ world, immediately signing up with ‘Soul Candi’s’ DJ school.
Having started her career in the entertainment and media industry at the age of 19, Fix has always believed that business, the arts, and social development are not mutually exclusive. In order to play her part in making this belief a reality, after 6 years working in the entertainment industry Fix decided to go back to school – studying at both Columbia College Chicago and New York University (studying Small Business / Entrepreneurship).
Constantly striving to enhance herself as a Social Entrepreneur, upon arrival back home, Fix continued her studies enrolling by enrolling at the ‘Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), University of Pretoria.’
Fix contends that of all the courses she has done, the GIBS Social Entrepreneurship Certificate Programme (SECP) has been the most impactful – to her as an individual and to her ability to affect social change through Entrepreneurship. Consequently, Fix has partnered with ‘GIBS’ to give a life-changing opportunity to Africa’s next Social Entrepreneur by offering the Fix Scholarship.
