I used to watch SABC1 strictly for the continuity presenters they used to have back in the day but now i've been wondering ''what happened to some of them''?
Robert Marawa is doing Discovery sport on Metro,Dicksie Ngqula the last time i checked had a show on 5fm.Mara what happened to the girls? Aboo Zandi Nhlapho,Thembi Mbengashe,Dawn Mphathi,that white girl who spoke isiZulu they used to call her Hlengiwe or something,Nana Moloi,Siphokazi January  i can't remember the other ones.
If you know what happened to them,please tell me coz i used to love them very much,they kept me entertained..Do you still remember when they did the MACARENA and sang along to Barbie girl.
If only they would do the same thing with these new presenters maybe they wouldn't bore me as much as they do especially that super-hyperactive chic,if such a word exist.So TVSA family do you perhaps know what happened to them and what are they doing with their  lives now?

watch Ba Kae on Sundays ku SABC 1 at 12:30 then ul find out ukuba where they are.

12 Nov 2007 08:25

Great article pushy85, but before I respond I would like to say that i was disappointed by this statement  "that white girl who spoke isiZulu they used to call her Hlengiwe or something" this is racism at its best, the wording and the fact that you remembered everybody's name but hers. The name you looking for is Camilla Walker, and you should have said. Hlengiwe, I admired the way she spoke zulu even though it wasnt her mother tongue, I am sure everyone could have got the picture. I aint fighting just encouraging.

Well i saw some of the past presenters in Facebook, but i'm also wondering where R they with their careers  remember when they sang "oops! i did it again" those guys used to entertain then, now all we get is abo-Loud Lalla..........mnxm SABC1.

The last time i heard UMawillies is selling clothes in the streets of Jo-burg. U-broke into eningakaze niyibone and blaming his record label like they always do. His last perfomance was in Swaziland and kuthiwa he was riding in a bus and carriying a duffel bag....just imagine him scautting in a bus!Shoo!

12 Nov 2007 09:25

awu xoki Msoe .LoL
.Mawillies selling clothes haai sana nobakuthwani kanti ukuwa komuntu yisheleni nah?

12 Nov 2007 09:29

Dawn is now practising law, during her presenting days she was studying and as soon as she finished she pursued her dreams of being a lawyer.

Apparently Zandi Nhlapho is part of the system noe, she has joined the daily grind like the rest of us. I don't know for sure what she does. But She has a normal nine to five job.

Wasn't Nana Moloi a newsreader? I don't rmember seeing her as a presenter on simunye.

13 Nov 2007 03:26

Andi01..I think thats a bit dramatic  I mean sometimes we dont remeber peoples names and just because they are white dont mean we are racist...and I think pushy stated the fact which was to remind us which white girl she's talkin about and u"Hlengiwe" was the only one who spoke zulu--maybe thats why  YOU remembered her easily....but-ke thats your opinion I guess....mina I would have said it excatly like that...e.g that black guy who used to have dreadlocks what was his name....(I'm talkin about Vushi Twala...)  now if I was white would you say I'm racist....ITs very difficult to be pc sometimes  
eish  what happened to "Vush Thwalar" anyways

13 Nov 2007 03:31

Sponono, this is the kinda thing that I missed u for, neway I hope u obtained nothing less than ama distinctions for ur exams after abandoning TVSA like that yezwa???

13 Nov 2007 04:31


13 Nov 2007 07:37

22 Nov 2007 02:51

Felicity got married and moved somewhere (in Africa),Zandi has a promotions/events management company somewhere in Jozi,Nana Moloi is supporting her daughter Pabi (LOL),Dicksie I think was at SABC at some point doing what I dont know,I saw Camilla - Hlengiwe the other day,I cant remember was it in a mag or newpaper.

Felicity Shiba now Hunt is back in Jozi apparently. She is married to some American teacher and has 3 kids. She was seen just last week at Sanlam Fashion Week with Claire Mawisa. They are still friends and Claire was wearring one of Felicity's designs. She is some bigshot designer now. Remember she used to dress all those celebs and make matric dance dresses. She was on selimathunzi yrs back making a dress for some lucky viewer. Well, all i can say is she is still all that and a bag of chips. Claire on the other hand is too hot.
