On Air Personality
If one were to describe Andile Ncube the words, ambitious, eloquent, and charismatic immediately come to mind; and are in fact contributors to him becoming one of South Africa’s leading and favourite sports presenters.
Originally beginning his TV career on the SABC1 music show “One”, he helped transform the show into the channel’s flagship music show. Not only did he harness his presenting skills, but ultimately became one of the shows executive producers, and oversaw the process of transforming the show to what it is now – “LIVE”.
Andile has just been announced as the anchor of two new shows,the most exciting football/talent show to ever hit mzansi -Nedbank Ke yona talent search and the worlds biggest talent search -Xfactor to both airing on SABC through till December but it was all humble beginnings for him after establishing the successful show, Andile decided to explore other avenues to build the Andile Ncube brand, which was when his passion for sport broke through. What most people don’t know and realise about this dynamic 31 year old is that he had a budding soccer career. The height of his football achievements came when he was invited to be part of the Ajax football academy, which was sadly cut short by a career ending injury. However, his love and passion for soccer and sport in general has only grown stronger over the years, and came to fruition when he began his sports broadcasting career. When South Africa hosted the FIFA World Cup in 2010, Andile was handpicked to host the flagship football show on SABC 1, “Soccerzone”. The success of the show lead to the hosting of a weekly show called Soccer 411. His expansive knowledge of both local and international football makes him the perfect host for a show that is full of banter and expert guests.
This coupled with his past radio career on 5FM and Breakfast show on TruFM, are just some of the reasons that Andile is considered to be one the most influential young men in the South African entertainment industry. With a love and passion that cannot be stopped, Andile is well on his way to becoming a powerhouse in the industry.
