Theledi received her elementary and high school education in Mpumalanga. She started living in the boarding school at the age of five and was part of her school’s drama group as a high school student.
Growing up, she was also a sporty person. She was part of the South African netball team, and she barely had time to get herself involved in other things, including listening to the radio.
Being someone who had so much interest in the entertainment sphere, she insisted on moving to Johannesburg to further her studies at a reputable institution. She was subsequently admitted to Monash University to study media communications.
Upon graduating, she enrolled at the prestigious Boston Media House to major in journalism, public relations, and radio (specifically sound engineering). Theledi began listening to the radio after she moved to Johannesburg.
Her Dad was Murdered When she was Two Years Old
Khutso’s father was murdered by a man when she was just two years old. Although she has never shared further information about the tragic incident, the media personality has said that if she were allowed a do-over, she would go back to the man who kill her father and try to change his mind or perhaps wish that her father was somewhere else on the day of his death.
She stated that her father inspires her on a daily basis and that she puts his picture everywhere she finds herself as a way of connecting with him, including in her car, office, and studio.
Khutso Theledi’s dad was well-to-do at the time of his death. One of the assets he left behind was a BMW 325i Coupe, which inspired the media personality to develop a deep love for high-performance cars. The car also became her dream car as she grew up.
Khutso Theledi Wears Many Hats, but She Started Out on the Radio
Khutso Theledi is a top-notch radio and TV host, presenter, voice-over artist, master of ceremonies, motivational speaker, content creator, social media influencer, and brand ambassador.
She launched her mixed career on the radio in April 2012 at the age of 21 at the popular YFM 99.2 while she was completing her Diploma in Radio and Sound Engineering at Boston Media House. Her first job was as a host on YFM’s breakfast show.
Although radio was not particularly Theledi’s initial plan as a little girl, as she had always dreamt about being a television presenter, she soon found herself in love with radio broadcasting after being an avid listener of YFM.
The media personality’s career got into full swing after she received a call from the legendary media personality Mo Flava in 2012, asking her to send her demo. Interestingly, she got the call the same day she was offered an air hostess job.
She was a co-host and traffic presenter for the breakfast show “Flava In The Morning” with Mo Flava (2012-2014), a co-host and presenter of the traffic on drive Time “The Freeway“ with Mo Flava (2014-2015) and co-host and presenter of the traffic show “The Raw Rush” with Thulisa Kanzi (2015-2016).
She co-hosted several other programs, making herself a radio darling among the public. In 2022, she was unveiled as the new co-host of the Metro breakfast show, Wake Up on Metro, alongside her former colleague Mo Flava.
She was excited about the journey and mostly because she was reuniting with the person who first saw potential in her as a Boston Media House voice-over student. The Hayview-born star has plans of hosting a reality show in the near future and also start a foundation for women’s empowerment.
She has also done a Cameo on one of the Popular TV series in the Country
Theledi did a cameo on the popular soapie Rhythm City, which she thoroughly enjoyed. She disclosed that the producers called her back for more roles after the project. Theledi says she believes that she would become an actress if she is meant to be one and that she wants it to happen organically.
Although she didn’t study, she picked up her acting skill at her high school’s drama club.
She Landed her First Cover Feature in 2021
Khutso Theledi graced the cover of Careers Magazine for the first time in November 2021. The top-notch radio and TV presenter shared how being teachable and authentic can be a secret weapon in the magazine.
In all fairness, Theledi has done well for herself, having surpassed many expectations. Besides her gig with Mo Flava, she is also the host Of Metro FM’s Mid-Morning show, #BreakAwayWith KhutsoTheledi.
