Simon Majadibodu is a 21-year-old from Limpopo who is well known as Radio Bae, he has been in the entertainment industry since 2018, he does presenting, news anchoring and voice overs. He is not just an entertainer but also a first-year university student studying Journalism. He completed his matric in 2018 and after that he attended a couple of radio auditions to try his luck, but things didn’t work out.
The journey has not been easy at all for him, there were times he even thought of giving up. During the auditions the judges would praise him for his talent and that they have been looking for people like him, to his surprise they never called him for the job. “The media industry is very hard and requires a lot of patience and people who know what they want.” He said.
The whole idea of radio came about when he was in matric, he would record himself presenting Thobela FM shows like hlokwa la tsela, tsa maphelo and ntshirogele, in the process using the names of my classmates as producers, then later play the recordings to his classmates and they would be so shocked as his talent is very extraordinary. So, during Sepedi Orals he did well in class and ended up being chosen to represent his class in Sepedi Orals in his district. “the person who really motivated me to follow radio broadcasting was my former Sepedi Teacher, the late Mam Koka, the very first teacher to recognize my talent.” Said Simon.
He always make sure that what his work and leisure time not in any way interfere with his school work since he is a university student and wants to make sure that he pass with flying colours. “Ïm a full time radio listener, I can’t go a day without listening to radio, its fun, entertaining and very educational.” He said.
He believes that his talent is very unique as his way of presenting is very different from how others present. His biggest dream is to see himself working for SABC Thobela FM as a radio presenter, news reader and station voice. “Ït would be such an honour to work on radio station that was my late father’s favourite.” Said Simon.
His role model is Mankoko Baby, a radio presenter at Thobela FM, reason being that her presenting style is very unique and lovely, not forgetting her beautiful angelic voice that will just make one fall in love with radio. “it would very great to one day share a mic with her, she is such a natural and nails every show given to her.” Said Radio bae.
He pledges to his fans and supporters to serve them and represent them no matter what, be the voice to the voiceless and tell south African stories to the world. “I believe my talent is fresh and new to the industry and I wish to transform and change the old broadcasting ways into modern ones and bring and bring new techniques. I want to be celebrated and be known for the good work that I will be doing.” he concluded.
