Bob Mabena on Today With John Perlman
John Perlman is joined by Kaya FM Breakfast show presenter, Bob Mabena. Mabena is celebrating 25 years in radio and reflects from his very first day in radio broadcasting. He says he knew he wanted to be in radio since his school year of grade 10.
Mabena shares his passion and drive for radio and its impact on citizens. He argues though that much of the new talent in radio lacks a certain level of sincerity.
Mabena was also involved in operations of South Africa’s first democratic elections. He says he realized that the country was changing and he had to be there for it.
He argues though that South Africa is now in trouble for not having a national identity and hiding behind pleasantries. Mabena says hope lies with the future generations, and he sustains the importance of culture and heritage.
Perlman springs a surprise and plays a few songs produced by Mabena in the past and gives Mabena a platform to share his three wishes, for the country, for his family and for himself.
