MIMI Muse: Fikile Moeti

Written By: MIM!Fikile Moeti, aka "Fix", made MTV history in 2006 by becoming the the first female VJ on the networks’ African music television channel, MTV Base. At the time, Fikile was a student at Cape Town University, who applied among thousands of other applicants to be on MTV. Since winning the competition, Fikile has firmly established herself as an MTV presenter and now travels all over Africa representing the channel—a natural fit for Fikile, who traveled around the world with her parents when she was younger. She explains, "My mother being Xhosa and my father being Motswana (Botswana). I have been privileged to travel around the world at a young age ... there is no kind of money that can buy experience!"

Passionate about everything she does, whether it's music, art ... or water polo (Fikile is a former South African water polo champion), Fikile does it all in her own unique, non-conforming style. Keep up with Fikile by following her on Twitter @fixsacious. In addition to watching Fikile on MTV Base, you can also listen to her on South African radio station 5FM.
