Tumi Morake has made it official that she is leaving Jacaranda FM.
Morake who has been co-hosting the breakfast slot with Martin Bester announced that she is leaving radio because her performance career is taking a new direction.
“My performance career is taking a new direction and unfortunately radio, with the time and energy it requires at this level, doesn’t fit into those plans. I had a great time and learnt many valuable lessons, yes, even when the pawpaw hit the fan. I wouldn’t change it for the world,” says Tumi.
After a short breather with her family, Tumi’s plans will include co-writing on a movie with her husband, Mpho Osei-Tutu; continuing with her TV presenting; an international stand-up tour in Australia; a new stand-up show with Ndumiso Lindi and a number of other exciting ventures that will be announced through the year.
Morake will host her last show on 09 March 2018. Martin Bester will continue to host the Jacaranda FM breakfast show, ably supported by Liesl Laurie and Elma Smit.
