Regarded as one of the best radio voices of our time, Khathide “Tshatha” Ngobe is a multi-talented radio and television personality who has mesmerised South African audiences for the past 11 years.

Born in KwaNongoma, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Ngobe relocated to Durban in 2001 when he was only 19 years of age.

His media career started in radio at Ukhozifm where he was the youngest radio DJ for a very good four years and quickly became a favourite with the listeners simply because of his unique voice and laughter and just the way he loved his Zulu culture and rich information about the Zulu tribe.

The production house of a show called “Roots” (played on SABC1) took a notice of this talent and hired him as its presenter from 2006 up until 2011. This was also the beginning of his TV career and now he presents a music show on a privately owned Television station.
