Katlego Maboe is a man of many talents.
The 30-year-old discovered his love of music as a child in the North West Children’s Choir. While studying Accounting at university, Katlego was a member of the successful acapella band, Flip a Coin.
They performed at some of the biggest Afrikaans music festivals, including the Klein Karoo Kunste National Arts Festival. A dynamic personality, and fluent in English, Tswana and Afrikaans, Maboe was a natural choice for TV presenting.

His debut was on the lifestyle magazine show, De Kat, before he moved onto investigative journalism on 50/50. Six years ago, Maboe landed an audition for the live morning show, Expresso, and he hasn’t looked back. His work on Expresso earned him the South African Film and Television Award for Best Presenter in 2015, and a second one in 2016.
Maboe believes his spontaneity and positivity are the secrets to his success in live television. “I have a responsibility to set the tone for the day, and infuse viewers with energy and hope.”
