Radio host and DJ, SUPTA began his career at Takalani FM, a local community radio station in Aliwal North in the Eastern Cape while he was in Grade 10.
“I was so intrigued and fascinated by what the presenters were doing by engaging young people and creating a story through someone’s mind by using their voice. I decided to try it out and, fortunately, there was a local community radio station called Takalani FM. I did a number of different shows until I was in Grade 12.”
From then on SUPTA went on to Motheo FM in Bloemfontein to present sports and then landed a position at Kovsie FM at the University of the Free State.
