Cape Town’s loss is Algoa Country’s gain – multi-talented television as well as radio presenter and actor, Monde Kapa, has joined Algoa FM as a producer and presenter.
Kapa recently relocated to Port Elizabeth, and has just commenced producing the Jeff Moloi Show and will be presenting the late-night show on Saturday evenings.
“Monde has been a presenter at 5FM, Good Hope, KFM and Highveld. He is, however, probably best known as the lead actor for the Sinutab ‘big head’ commercial and ‘Vuyo’s friend’ in a Hansa Pilsner ad – and – was a prime-time anchor on eTV,” says Algoa FM operations director, Alfie Jay. Kapa presented sport as well as news on the morning show for eTV and was their lead anchor for the 2010 World Cup.
“Whilst Mr Jeff and I both worked at eTV at the same time, we never really met. He is a consummate professional and I’m already experiencing good vibes. I think we’re going to make a great team,” says Kapa.
Jeff Moloi, who presents the weekday 7 to 10pm show on Algoa FM said: “I’m delighted to welcome this “cool kid” on the show. He has a lot of new suggestions and some fresh ideas – and has a great sense of humour. Let’s put it this way … he’s taking my on-air “jabs” at him in good spirits. He keeps threatening to retaliate on his Saturday night gig so I may have to interdict that show from going out – depending of course on the quality of his comebacks, LOL … We’ve travelled a similar route in broadcasting so this should be a smooth ride.”
Kapa added: “My decision to move to PE is fast proving to have been a great one. I am falling in love with this part of the world and am looking forward to engaging with my new Algoa FM audience.” Kapa also has his own business, Monde Kapa Productions, which he has operated since June 2011.
“Monde is one hell of a nice guy and we’re expecting big things from him. We wish him every success with Algoa FM,” says Jay.
