Katlego Maboe has cemented himself as one of the best presenters in the country today. Known for hosting the popular Expresso Morning Show as well as the latest season of Tropika Island Of Treasure, the star continues to conquer the local television space with his cool, calm and collected approach to presenting and sharp wit. We get up close and personal with the star in a series of quickfire questions.
What are you most excited about these days?
After long roadtrips/travelling and long days, I most look forward to coming home to spend time with my family. Especially seeing how much my little boy has grown and learned and understands; and new things that he’s found out that he’s excited about. Ie: Smacking a zylophone or walking around very fast like he’s running – always exciting to come home to it.
If you could switch lives with someone for a day who would it be?
I don’t think I would want to switch lives with anyone for a day. Everyone has their own problems and victories in life, and mine are sufficient for me.
If you could go to any concert past or present, what would it be?
One of Michael Jacksons concerts in his hayday. Performing the moonwalk for the first time and people going crazy for it.
If you could do a flash mob anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Probably in Disneyland. I’d employ all performers and dancers. Why? They’re masters of entertainment. Everyone in Disneyland always seems to know what song and dance to do.

What’s the first thing you do when you go back to your hometown?
I like to take a walk down Pilane Street, take a right at the T-junction and walk the same route I used to walk on my way to visit my friends. While on this walk, take in where it is where I am and where I came from – where it all started, in those streets. It’s a sobering experience.
If your life was a song what would the title be?
If my life was a song, right now, I’d want it to be so good. It’d be called “So Good”.
If you could master one instrument what would it be?
The saxophone and the very many variations of it. I’d like to be able to play the solo of ‘I will always love you’.
The best thing about living in South Africa is?
South Africa ia a country still blessed with so much potential which if tapped into correctly could see us being a catalyst on the continent – to where a place it deserves to be in the world.
A restaurant wants to name a Kota after you. What do you name your Kota and what are the main ingredients in your Kota?
It would be called the ‘Tantalizing Tenor Temptation’. As for the main ingredients, they would include chicken thigh meat (nice and juicy!) in a medium style curry, potato, beans – for health, add a side serving of salad.
