Karabo Maseko’s been Mr Pop­u­lar on hip-hop-themed show Shi­zlive (2016cur­rent) since win­ning the Craz-e World Live pre­sen­ter search in 2015 but there’s more to the 21-year-old than just in­ter­view­ing lo­cal rap­pers. “I’m pas­sion­ate about what I do and wouldn’t change it for any­thing. I’m a sim­ple guy from Mpumalanga liv­ing my dream,” ex­plains Karabo, who stud­ied busi­ness man­age­ment at the Univer­sity Of Johannesburg.

Pre­sent­ing and busi­ness man­age­ment are two very dif­fer­ent things… [Laughs] Yes and I love my job, it’s amaz­ing. I get paid to be my­self and I al­ways wanted to be on TV. I didn’t think that I would get this far when I en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion and it’s noth­ing like I imag­ined. What was your first show like on Shi­zlive? I got so ner­vous that I for­got my lines… on a live show! It was a mess [Laughs] but I learnt to re­lax and not over­think about all of the view­ers watch­ing. Your high­light so far would be… Be­ing on the show is a high­light. But if I had to choose one, it would be in­ter­view­ing rap­per KO [2016] who’s also from Mpumalanga and one of my favourite lo­cal mu­si­cians. Any other projects that you’re work­ing on? I sing R&B cov­ers and I post clips on my In­sta­gram ac­count for my 27 400 fol­low­ers. I’d love to record a cover al­bum with old-school R&B bal­lads. How’s that for a hip hop pre­sen­ter [Laughs]? And what do you do in your free time? I’m a fit­ness freak. I love work­ing out and hit the gym six days a week. I also like hang­ing out with my sis­ter Tsholo Maseko, who’s also an ac­tress and pre­sen­ter [she played Rosie on ed­u­ca­tional drama In­ter­sex­ions in 2013].
