Power Personality Of TheWeek: Bebe
Who is Bebe?
Bebe is fun,vivacious and driven. I never let things get me down, im a glass half full kind of girl and i want to share my positive attitude with everyone. And i love music, music is me, me is music i cant even begin to relate how music has shaped me and healed me. I believe there is a song for every mood. For this reason, am glad to provide the soundtrack to peoples lives now.
2. How would you describe your presenting style
My presenting style is very pop,R n B and hiphop centred but of course dance music whether its kwaito, gqom or dancehall comes in a lot. I am young and am on the pulse of the newest trends and i love to talk about things that people are thinking. My aim is to open up people’s minds to new ideas and positive ways of thinking while keeping it fun and entertaining.
3. What is it that people should watch out for from you
Entertainment, originality, great music and sass. I plan on being around for the longest time. I wanna be the voice that accompanies the listener through the day and through a time in their lives.
4. How was the moment like, when you heard you had made the final cut on PowerFM Auditions
Shuuuu mtase! The call backs took so long i actually thought i hadn’t made it, when i got the call i literally cried. I was really emotional. I’ve wanted this for a long time.
5. How has the experience been like so far being on the country’s biggest radio station
It has been an experience of a lifetime. My first time on air i was sweating so much and i was so nervous but i came to realise that if you just put your heart out there, the listeners respond and give you their hearts too. I’ve loved every minute of it and PowerFM is the coolest place ever.
