Bio

Masechaba Ndlovu (née Lekalake) is a Zambian-born South African actress, television producer and presenter best known for presenting such shows as Weekend Live, Into Africa, Afro Showbiz and eNews.

She also hosted the SABC1 reality competition One Day Leader, in 2011 and again in 2013.

Having earned her media studies certificate in which she majored in journalism, video broadcasting and public relations, Masechaba finally got to carry out her formal skills and acquire further knowledge at Urban Brew Studios.

While there, she became studio anchor and video journalist for Into Africa, a travel show on SABC Africa that she co-presented with Hlomla Dandala. The show took her across the continent to Ethiopia, Egypt, Uganda, Ghana, and Nigeria. She was also researcher, content-producer and scriptwriter for the show.

She debuted on SABC screens as a supporting actress on the soapie Generations, before clinching a lead role in the e.tv soapie Backstage in 2003.

Since then, Masechaba has presented numerous shows including That'I'Zak and Out of Box with Paul Viv. For two consecutive seasons she was a sports host on the wrestling show WWP.

Later Masechaba traded in the lights of the ring for the glitz of the showbiz world, gracing red carpets and interviewing local and international stars on SABC1's music show Reliable Slamdown. On many occasions she was guest presenter on Live, SABC1's Friday night live music programme.

In 2006, Masechaba pioneered SABC Africa's entertainment news programme, Afro Showbiz. She was unveiled as the face of the Old Mutual Vukani Fashion Awards at the official press launch.

Subsequently, she hosted the 2007 Vukani Fashion Awards and the 2007 African Pride Awards.

She also hosted the SABC Africa On-screen film festival for two consecutive years (2007 and 2008). She was also host at the 2008 Highway Africa Awards ceremony, the largest gathering of African journalists in the world.

In 2012 she hosted the SABC2 reality competition series Big Break Legacy and in 2014 she hosted the e.tv game show I Love South Africa.

In 2013 she began hosting the talk show Eksê: Let's Talk with Masechaba Lekalake with Tol A$$ Mo and Refilwe Modiselle on the OpenView HD channel eKasi+. It was the first original series to air on eKasi+, starting on the evening that the channel went live in October 2013. It began the following day on e.tv as well and got a second season in 2014.

Also in 2014, she hosted the e.tv game show I Love South Africa.

In 2015 she married Vusi Ndlovu and changed her name, being credited for the first time as Masechaba Ndlovu when she began hosting the e.tv talk show The Big Debate.
