MoreLife gets nominated for National Community Radio Station awards
Cosmo FM presenter Molefi Seqhala, popularly known as MoreLife, is making a name for himself in the broadcasting industry. He has been nominated for the 2018-19 National Community Radio Week awards as the best presenter for his Afternoon Drive and Music Show.
The National Community Radio Week awards happen annually and it is organized by Thoughts Lounge in conjunction with the Free State Provincial government. It is aimed at uplifting community radio personalities in all provinces by awarding them recognition in different categories. The closing date for voting of nominees is 28th of February.
Over 250 participants, from over 66 community radio stations from across the country will join MoreLife in Manguang for a week from 28 February. The last day of the week-long event will conclude with an awards ceremony where different presenters will be rewarded for their outstanding work in their respective communities.
MoreLife’s love for radio encouraged him to pursue a career in broadcasting despite being a professional engineer. He joined Cosmo FM in 2017as a presenter for the Midday Delight Show. That radio show set his wheels in motion, and he has been riding the wave since.
“Radio is my passion, and I am very happy to be nominated,” MoreLife told the Chronicle. “I had been pushing for radio opportunities since 2015. I was very grateful when I got an opportunity at Cosmo FM. I vividly remember my first day to present the Midday Delight show. When I went to inquire about presenting opportunities, the regular presenter was ill and I was told to go behind the microphone without preparing.”
MoreLife said that he had to impress and do the best on his first day on radio. After that he became a regular presenter for the Midday Delight show and other Cosmo FM shows. His voice became well-liked on the Cosmic Drive Show with MoreLife and the Connect Show with MoreLife which eventually saw him nominated for the awards.
“Being nominated shows that I am making a lot of progress in the broadcasting industry,” MoreLife said. “I respect my listeners; I do not go on air unprepared. In the music show, I strive to bring a moment of fun even if the song is old. I also inform people and give them some advice. I think my nomination will remain in the history of Cosmo FM.”
MoreLife said that he grew up listening to Lesedi FM, and he would love to work for the SABC radio station.
