Eastern Cape born Samantha Lehoko found her passion for entertainment and the performing arts at the tender age of 13. She honed her radio skills on UCT’s campus radio, hosting a myriad of shows and keeping audiences glued to their speakers.  From taking Dramatic Arts as an 8th subject in high school to, in tertiary, studying Ethics, Anthropology and Sociology, Sam has managed to use her knowledge and experiences, and channel them towards the media and broadcasting industry.

YFM caught hold of Samantha in 2014 and found exactly what they were looking for; someone young, fresh, fun, but most importantly, someone DIFFERENT.  Clearly born for the entertainment industry, this young and dynamic talent caught the eyes of local TV producers and became the face of Channel O and a presenter on Turn Up. She was also responsible for keeping partygoers in the loop of the hottest parties on ETV’s popular music show, Club 808. 

This diverse and multi-talented young woman who has fearlessly conquered and become a favourite in the different media platforms ranging from radio, television, event emceeing and public speaking, indicates that this young and dynamic young beauty is more than just a sensational ‘IT’ girl, but is here to stay for a very long time. With exceptional articulation, Samantha is a great MC and presenter.
