Zama Dube Is Living Out Loud

Written By: Nani Hapa—Zama Dube is defining the voice of the youth in post-apartheid South Africa as host of The Face-Off With Zama Dube on Johannesburg-based youth-centric radio station, YFM, which is known for broadcasting “the soundtrack to an urban life—fast-paced, energetic and uplifting with a mix of a few quiet moments so that you can catch your breath in the middle of Jozi madness.” Born in Kwa-Mashu, Durban, to a single mother, Zama comes from a musical family of natural dancers and singers—it is no wonder then that she made her way to radio while concurrently studying a joint honors degree at WITS University. MIMI caught up with the reb(ELLE) to talk about being a part of, and representing, the young post-apartheid generation. Read our interview with Zama in the article Living Out Loud.
