My Top 10 At 10 profiles are a mixture of things T-bose Mokwele does incredibly well: Getting to the bottom of a guest’s story as told through music. Whether they are high profile figures, musicians or ordinary people, he always finds a connection when leading the conversation. Here are a few interviews from 2019 and the guests who made the feature memorable this year.
In 2019 we celebrated 22 years of Kaya 959. One person who had been with us from the very beginning was Ma Lucy Nkoana. At the end of November, she went into retirement and she graced the My Top 10 At 10 seat before bidding us farewell.
2019 has been a year characterised by T-bose Mokwele talking streetwear and shoes quite a bit. It was only right that rapper AKA come through to talk about his SneAKA.
Award-winning journalist and newsreader Cathy Mohlahlana shared her journey in the media industry.
As we celebrated Ma Adelaide Tambo’s 90th birthday, her grandchildren joined T-bose to talk about her legacy.
Mandisa Mashego speaks about affirmative action, being a black woman in politics and afro-feminism.
2019 has been an incredible year for Kaya Bizz presenter, Gugulethu Mfuphi! She was named by Mail & Guardian as one of 200 young South Africans in the film and media category. She also won, for the second year in a row, a Best Business and Finance Show (Commercial) award at the Liberty Radio Awards. She returned to My Top 10 At 10 ahead of her hosting the first FNB Business Women Breakfast.
Some interviews are just a no-brainer. That’s exactly what this conversation with international artist Eric Benét was.
In the past two years, University of Cape Town Vice-Chancellor, Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng has risen in popular consciousness. In her first year of her of being Vice-Chancellor, she’s spoken out about education, poverty and more. Talking to T-bose, she shared her mother’s story of returning to school in her 20s.
International model, admitted attorney and activist, Thando Hopa shared her story and how she bridged her passions as well as her sabbatical.
