Thato Tholo of Soweto TV and Jozi FM is making it BIG in Mzantsi's Entertainment Scene

Thato Tholo is all over the place, radio (Jozi Frequency Modulation and Soweto TV’s Urban Xplosion) so I thought why not give him the publicity he deserves to share his time to fame with our readers. Here’s my Q & A with him below so enjoy…

Q Where did you grow up?
 A I grew up in the Vaal for a good part of my life then moved to Soweto when I was 9 to live with my parents.

Q How was it like growing up there?
A Growing up I had a normal upbringing from a middle class family, so I had most of the things I needed as a normal black child growing up.

Q How many siblings do you have?
A I only have one which is a girl, I’m the first born.

Q Who is the funniest member of your family and what makes you find them funny?
A There are just countless of them and this due to the personalities and how they approach certain situations. So I can’t really choose one lol!

Q So, how old are you?
A Very old lol.

Q So where did you study?
A I studied at CTI in Bedfordview and graduated to receive my BA (hons) Business Studies.

Q Why would you say Education is important to other young people?

A No.

Q So who’s the lucky person?
A I will not answer that.

Q How do you spend your weekends?

A They should continue supporting the work I do. And got mad love for them.

Q Who’s your best friend and how do you choose such friend(s)?
A I don’t have best friends I just keep a close knit circle of friends.

Q What is your favourite food dish?
A My mom’s and grandmothers cooking. So I can’t pin point one dish.

Q What is your most dreadful food dish?
A Snails yuck who eats such vile things?

Q Who are your influences in the media industry?
A The likes of Ryan Seacrest I admire the work ethic and all the presenters on Expresso on SABC 3 lol.

Q Can you give thanks to three (3) people that inspired you in your chosen field(s)?
