TRUE STORY: So, what’s it like to be on live TV? Our #GHTVStar Masechaba Mkefa tells it like it is:
‘I was TV! On live TV!’ I am still running this through my head. When Expresso called to ask me to talk about the books we have featured in our June issue, my first thought was that I was being ‘Punk’d’. My second? Thank heavens I’d spent the who weekend braiding my hair! After 3 outfit changes – what would YOU wear if you were going to be beamed to the nation – I arrived at the studio to a waiting room filled with people who all looked a lot calmer than I felt. I was whisked off to make-up (I want the make-up artist to live with me) and then through to the studio. Mic on, smiles for Africa (I think my jaw still aches) and this was it. What if I swore? What if I forgot the names of the books? The story lines? The first time I even saw Leigh–Ann Williams, who was interviewing me, was exactly 15 seconds before the cameras starting rolling. But she was brilliant – she took one look at my scared face, told me to breathe and that I’d be fine. Then the count down to live… 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1! Which camera do I look into…?
