Umlilo star Thato Molamu has landed his own show on East Coast Radio. Molamu, who plays the character of Maru on Mzansi Magic’s Greed and Desire and TK on e.tv’s Umlilo now has his own Sunday afternoon show on the popular KwaZulu-Natal based radio station.
“Great radio presenters are simply people who have the ability to connect through one-on-one conversation and are exceptional storytellers. Thato is both of these,” says East Coast Radio’s Programming Manager, Zane Derbyshire.
“He is well-known to television audiences and the plan is to make him equally well known as a radio star.”
The former Generations star and father of two says he is counting down the days until he is live on-air.
“A lot of people identify me with the characters I play and never really get to know the real Thato. Now that I have my own show, I will be able to share who I am with listeners and share my thoughts with the world. People can expect fun, good music, good chats and just a great time between 10am and 2pm. Sundays will never be the same!”
The TV star can’t stop raving about his new home in KwaZulu-Natal. “KZN has a vibe that many provinces in South Africa don’t have. It has good weather and great culture. I think the weather compliments the people of KZN. There’s warmth all around.”
