Being behind the scenes probably wouldn't mean much for the listener but where the content of the shows are concerned, the amount of work and dedication put in place takes a lot of research and MmaKobedi knows about it, meet the seasonal content producer Mmakobedi Choabi who is a content producer @MotswedingFM
📰 Tell us about yourself, your childhood?
🎧📻 I was born and raised in Potchefstroom. I'm proud to say that I was raised by my grandmother who even in death still influences the decisions I make. I am a kind human being that is sometimes misunderstood by those distant from me; my uncle is very dear to me, 'I love God that's why I'm blessed to be a mother to Prof Ontiretse Kabo'.
📰 When did your love for radio begin and who would you say inspired you?
🎧📻 I knew when I was studying Journalism that I would best fit in radio. I have no specific person that inspired me.
📰 How did it come about to be a content producer and what makes a good content producer?
🎧📻 I was just fortunate and through grace everything just fell into place. I guess my grandmother's prayers came through. I think I am an outstanding producer because of a few factors, my formal education, the skill to listen to those I work with(presenters) , I have an eye for content and the ultimate drive just to be the best.
📰 What would you say are the challenges of being a content producer and what would be the highlights?
🎧📻 To stay connected to your audience is by far the hardest, striking that balance. I can with a smile say content contributors know their story, when music speaks to the content and lastly when your listener mentions that your content touched them.
📰 Would you say Radio content have changed over the years?
🎧📻 Yes definitely! Radio is mostly influenced by social media. 4IR is definitely here. Adapt or die.
📰 You've been nominated before for radio awards, how important is recognition?
🎧📻 Recognition simply means your work doesn't go unnoticed, if anything the pressure is to always be at your A game. I have maintained that and can say I am a seasonal content producer who has worked on most shows.
📰 If you weren't on radio, what would you be doing?
🎧📻 I would be doing missionary work, hence I am happy to be an ambassador for future females in North West. I am that person.
📰 Your advice for aspiring content producers.
🎧📻 I always ask myself two questions: What legacy are you going to be leaving behind? Would you want your presenter(s) to credit you at the end of the shows? Lastly READ!
📰 What do you get up to when relaxing?
🎧📻 I hardly relax but spending time with friends and my son.
📰 Can we find you on social media?
