AJ

I was born Asisipho Blie, 23 years ago in Alice Eastern Cape. Growing up with my school  teacher parents, I was raised and bred in Bisho. I am an Eastern Cape girl through and through, with major plans to develop and inspire rural and township youth. I have been an on-air personality for the past seven years, having started with a weekend slot as a teenager. Currently I’m having blast co-hosting The Real Deal with Buck Matyila. I just love to read and write, especially inspiring young South African writers such as Ndumiso Ngcobo, Malaika Wa Azania, Eusebius McKaiser amongst others. I also love interacting with my peers in church, as a member of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa’s youth movement; Wesley Guild.

favourite place to visit?

My favourite place to visit is without a doubt HOME, Im fortunate enough to have been born in a scenic village called Khayalethu, just on the foot of the Hogsback mountain. It actually snows in July, and I have access to the mountains and beautiful waterfalls. So whenever I need a pick-me-up, it literally takes me about 40 minutes to get to paradise!

Favourite meal?

How can one have just one favourite meal? I love ulusu nomngqusho, lamb chops and prawns! I guess I have an insatiable appetite!

What are you most proud of in the Eastern Cape?

We live in a beautiful province. Taking a drive between East London and Mthatha… Being inbetween the hills and the valley is just breathtaking. Im proud that Im a product of a province that has birthed and raised my icons and role-models that are just too many to mention one by one.   

Hopes and aspirations?

I started a youth gospel group towards the end of last year. This year will be all about establishing and marketing that group to hopefully become a force to be reckoned with. And ofcourse…. Education is important to me. I plan to further my studies.

Favourite type of music; favourite movie?

I love music that makes me feel good, regardless of genre. From Simphiwe Dana to Beyonce…. I don’t discriminate. Im big on comedy so my favourite movies are This is 40, Little Miss Sunshine, Superbad, Knocked Up and any good comedic DVD that’s out. My favourite is Mike Epps’ Seksy and every Trevor Noah DVD out!

favourite quote/words to live by?

“You only live once, but if done right, once is enough!”
