23 January Guest: Minnie Jones

Minnie Dlamini is an award-winning South African actress, television personality, and brand ambassador. She gained her fame as the host of one of South Africa’s biggest music shows, Live.

Parented by Jabulani and Queen Dlamini in Durban, KwaZulu Natal. She had her early education at Northlands Girls’s High school before she could to the University of Cape Town.

While studying at the University of Cape Town, Minnie became a presenter for LIVE on the 16th of June 2010 after she made her debut screen appearance while covering the “ Youth Day” and “ World cup celebrations” shows. At the time, Live was headed by Bonang Matheba, Tbo Touch, MTV VJ Sizwe Dhlomo and the lesser known Phila Mazibuko. Dlamini had a huge task on her hands if she were to sparkle in the face of such star power. Bonang was perhaps the biggest star, then and now, but it was no deterrent for the talented Dlamini. She quickly honed her role and came to have her own fan-base. Arguably, her fame came at a much faster speed and in greater volumes. In just a few months she landed a role in Generations on SABC 1, as Miranda. Minnie achieved her goal in the face of just two popular shows. These shows were enough to turn any unknown into an instant star with the far-fetching audience and level of exposure due to its popularity. Catch her tonight as she’ll be sharing her story with us. #TSAon3
