Congratulations to One Young World Ambassador Katlego Maboe on being awarded the prestigious South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA) for best TV presenter of the year, for the second year in a row.
Katlego was recognised for his excellence as a TV presenter- he hosts 50/50 on SABC2 and Expresso on SABC3, as well as a second season of Strictly Come Dancing.
Katlego first came onto the South African cultural scene as a singer and songwriter and was a lead vocalist and beat-boxer of the well-known South African A Capella group Flip a Coin. The group has performed live on the M-Net shows Huisgenoot Skouspel and Idols.
In addition to also hosting the SAFTAs this year, Katlego has also hosted ATKV Mediaveertjies and the Huisgenoot Tempo Toekennings.
Appointed a HOPE Cape Town Goodwill Ambassador in 2014, Katlego is regularly involved in philanthropic projects that focus on education and health, such as his ongoing community work with HOPE Cape Town and riding the Cape Town Cycle Tour twice in the name of charity (with Michael Mol in 2011 for Open Gate, and in 2013 riding for Pick n Pay in support of the Velokhaya Cycling Club).
Katlego completed his schooling at Potchefstroom Central School and Potchefstroom High School for Boys, matriculating in 2004. Thereafter he proceeded to study for a B.Com degree in Chartered Accountancy at the North West University which he completed in 2007.
